meeting initial needs in literacy
To be released in July 2021, MiniLit Sage is the first major revision of the MiniLit program, which was launched ten years ago.
MiniLit Sage represents the latest scientific research and evidence base on effective reading instruction and intervention. This incorporates relevant findings from the MiniLit: Learning Impact Fund Evaluation Report (Quach et al., 2019).
MiniLit Sage has also been revised to align with the InitiaLit scope and sequence for better integration between the two programs.
MultiLit will continue to support existing MiniLit customers through training and consumable/replacement component sales, so that the many schools that have invested in this highly effective program can continue to use it in the coming years.
Training in MiniLit Sage will be required upon first purchase of the program. MultiLit will support the transition from MiniLit to MiniLit Sage for existing and new customers with the following training options:
- Training in the current MiniLit program will continue via self-paced eLearning modules from May 2021 onwards. This option will allow customers who do not wish to upgrade to MiniLit Sage to continue to train new staff until 2023.
- Bridging training in MiniLit Sage for individuals who have previously completed MiniLit PD will be made available in July 2021. This training will be offered by self-paced eLearning modules.
- A new two-day PD Workshop in MiniLit Sage (offered in-person and via videoconference) will be made available in July 2021. This can be attended by schools brand-new to MiniLit Sage, and previous MiniLit schools that do not have an individual previously trained in MiniLit and able to do the bridging training. Training dates for Semester 2 will be available in Term 2.
