MultiLit is pleased to be presenting PD Workshops on the following programs in Canberra during October and November.
Reading Tutor Program: 21 October 2019
The Reading Tutor Program (RTP) is a literacy intervention program for struggling readers and reflects a contemporary approach to best practice literacy instruction as identified by international reading scientists and various inquiries into reading. It is a one-to-one program which can be delivered to students in Year 2 and above by classroom teachers, learning support teachers or trained teacher aides. The RTP is available for purchase by schools only.
Training via our one-day PD Workshop is highly recommended to give the user confidence to get started. The workshop explains each of the program’s three strands, and provides opportunities to practise delivery.
MacqLit: 27-28 November 2019
MacqLit is a an explicit and systematic reading intervention for small groups of older low-progress readers. It is suitable for students in Year 3 and above, including secondary school years.
A recent analysis of research relating to students who undertook MacqLit for two terms found the students made substantial and statistically significant gains in word reading accuracy, nonword reading accuracy, spelling accuracy, passage reading fluency, passage reading accuracy, and reading comprehension.
MacqLit is available for purchase by schools only.
Training in MacqLit is compulsory prior to the delivery of the program. The two-day PD Workshop provides hands-on demonstrations and ample opportunity to ask questions about how to implement MacqLit in your school.
