MultiLit is pleased to be presenting PD Workshops on the following programs in Perth during October and November.
Reading Tutor Program: 28 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.
Word Attack Skills – Extension Program: 29 October 2019
The one-to-one Word Attack Skills – Extension Program follows on from the RTP to teach strategies to help struggling readers tackle multi-syllable words with confidence. The program is designed for students in Year 4 and above, and is available for purchase by schools only.
Training via our one-day PD Workshop is highly recommended to provide essential background knowledge, as well as the research base behind the program. The workshop provides a step-by-step guide to the interventions and strategies used, and provides opportunities to practise lesson delivery.
Spell-It: 11 November 2019
Spell-It is a program that assists teachers to plan and implement spelling instruction based on assessment of students’ current knowledge. Spell-It teaches the rules, conventions, structure and logic of the English language, to enable teachers to plan effective spelling lessons based on the needs of their students.
The program can be tailored to the needs of students in Year 4 and above, and can be delivered to a whole class or small group by classroom teachers or learning support teachers.
Spell-It is only available for purchase by schools.
Training via our one-day PD Workshop is compulsory prior to implementing the program, covering the Spell-It teaching approach, identification of spelling needs through assessment, opportunities to practise lesson delivery, and practical aspects of implementation.
