Teaching for Growth in Reading and Writing in Years 3 to 6


All teachers would acknowledge the importance of student growth in reading and writing. The challenge is how to maintain growth across the primary grades.  This course outlines a number of simple processes for a class teacher or a whole school to monitor progress in reading and writing across stages 2 and 3.

Teachers will examine the identification of learning needs for the diversity of students in their class.  A range of strategies that assist teachers to ensure growth in reading and writing outcomes will be explored.
