Event description
What to teach? When to screen? How to cater for the range in ability?

About this Event

Researchers consistently report that the returns are greatest when students are first learning to read, spell and write. Year 1 and 2 is critical for long-term literacy success.

This one day seminar provides the theory, knowledge and screening tools to ensure educators are equipped to maximise the literacy outcomes of Year 1 and 2 students.

It outlines PLD’s structured synthetic phonics (SSP) approach to the development of reading, spelling and writing. Research explains that targeted SSP teaching will produce superior gains and PLD’s SSP approach is identified by AUSPELD as a recommended evidence-based approach.

With a focus on PLD’s evidence-based structured synthetic phonic approach to literacy, educators will be presented with phonic-based targeted teaching experiences for reading, spelling and writing to transition into a more ‘effortless’ process.

Recommended for staff working within Year 1 and 2, this seminar explores:

  • How to implement PLD’s structured synthetic phonics approach in Year 1 and 2.

  • How focused instruction can be delivered to a class with a range in student ability.

  • The teaching of decoding, fluency and the relevance of decodable reading material. 

  • Time efficient decoding and spelling assessments designed to identify the range in ability so teachers can be more focused in their instruction.

  • Assessments and instruction for students not reading and spelling.

  • Phonic dictation as a medium to transfer phonic concepts into written work.

  • Techniques to apply for poor (or reluctant) writers.

  • Oral language instruction which facilitates the ability to speak in complex, grammatically correct sentences.

  •  Narrative retelling and generation to increase comprehension and written expression ability.

Testimonials

The content of your session was fantastic, I only wish it went for longer. Your delivery of the content, I believe, is why our staff sought you out in the first place. 

Luke - Assistant Principal

  We continue to grow under your guidance and teaching!  We are certainly making progress with our students but they do seem to be coming to school with less each year. Our staff continues to access your PD and rave about what they have learnt.  You are such an inspiration to all of us.

I want to thank you for your outstanding professional learning and guidance.  You have given us the confidence and knowledge in such a succinct and sensible way to work with students of this age in this area.  Your professional learning should be mandatory for all teachers. 

Rebecca – K-2 Coordinator

 Thank you so much for yesterday. It was an amazing day and so much was accomplished. Despite being a principal, I am a junior teacher at heart and I found what you were presenting to the teachers so very useful.

Gwen – Educational Support Unit Principal

 I work in a remote community school. I have a variety of literacy levels and use your program, to engage my class. Since using PLD my class has made considerable improvement and this is being tracked using your useful assessments. 

Chloe – remote community school

 Your PL totally exceeded our expectations and has given us a fantastic starting point for putting together a whole school literacy plan.

Cathy – Year 1 & 2 Teacher
