MultiLit is pleased to be presenting PD Workshops on the following programs in Geelong during October.
PreLit: 15 October 2019
PreLit is a systematic skills-based early literacy preparation program for preschool children who will be making the transition to formal schooling the following year, as well as older children who do not have the prerequisite skills for learning to read.
Taught to a whole class, small groups or one-to-one, the PreLit program focuses on the development of two key aspects of literacy that are fundamental to early reading success: oral language development and phonological awareness.
For best results delivering PreLit, training via the one-day PD Workshop is highly recommended, particularly for educators who may not be familiar with evidence-based teaching of emergent literacy skills and concepts.
MiniLit: 16-17 October 2019
The MiniLit program has been designed as a small group intervention for the bottom 25% of Year 1 and Year 2 students.
MiniLit incorporates the five key elements research has shown to be essential for effective beginning reading instruction (phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, comprehension, and vocabulary).
MiniLit is available for purchase by schools only.
Training in MiniLit 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 MiniLit in your school.
