This year has been very busy and different but that does not mean that our focus on accelerating learning specially for those learners who are struggling. Our area of focus has been reading as this is an area where the data shows us we need to make shift to help our children get to the norm or ideally accelerate past it.
What we have seen is that there is not accelerated progress and high achievement.
We started the day by discuss the Model of literacy development. Moving from basic literacy, intermediate literacy and disciplinary literacy. We are able to get children reading but not being critical reader and this means they do not always have the skills to read in a disciplinary way need for high school and life reading.
