Professional Development
in Schools 

Professional Learning over 1-2 years that will increase your teachers' understanding of the Science of Reading and develop their teaching practice of Structured Literacy through modelling, coaching and feedback.

 

Teachers will learn the science behind the pedagogy, the foundational skills required for all learners to become readers and writers, and how a scope and sequence ensures the teaching and learning builds incrementally. They will develop explicit teaching skills required for this approach, when, how and why to use decodable books for beginning readers and transition students to authentic texts. Assessments that align with this approach and tracking sheets to monitor all students will be implemented.

The Code Package

Our professional learning package to implement The Code in 2024 will include:

  • A Teacher Only Day including assessing, planning and teaching The Code

  • At least two days of in-school coaching to support the implementation of teaching The Code

Workshop Key Takeaways

Excited to finally teach literacy with a scope and sequence that can used across the school for the absolute benefit of all students

I’m excited as a Principal to now make a real change for all students with this new knowledge

It’s ok to have been cr*p at teaching spelling all these years as no-one has taught me how to teach it. That’s all about to change

Why was I not taught this in my teacher training just a few years ago. I have learnt  SO much???

26 letters, 44 phonemes and 250 representations, now The Code shows me how to teach this’

So many spelling patterns but now I have a pathway to teach them with The Code

Progression from letters to words to sentences to a book, now that makes sense!

Go as fast as you can but as SLOW as you need to

Structured Literacy gives ALL learners a pathway to learn to read and spell.
