Oxford Professional Development – Free Session
Effective literacy teaching, and specifically the teaching of reading, should be grounded in evidence from rigorous research. But how do we translate the research to our classrooms?
Oxford University Press would like to invite you to learn from an Adelaide-based Principal, Mark Hansen, who has successfully implemented a synthetic phonics teaching program which has enabled all students at Ardtornish PS to become fluent readers, confident speakers and willing writers.
Who should attend?
This session is appropriate for Primary Principals, Assistant Principals and Literacy Coordinators, Primary Teachers, and Secondary Learning Support Educators.
Join us to:
- Learn about how an explicit synthetic phonics program can support student reading success in Primary and lower Secondary (intervention).
- Hear about the criteria that Ardtornish PS considered when selecting a phonics program
- Receive best-practice advice for successfully implementing a phonics program and the Phonics Screening Check.
