My 2016 Inquiry into Practice

This year PES (Pt England School) has a school wide inquiry focus on formative practice in reading/writing to improve students achievement. 

 After meeting with Juanita Garden (AP at Pt England School) to discuss the challenges for my learners in reading and writing I decided to focus my inquiry on how to scaffold vocabulary development and word decoding skills for struggling reader? I choose this focus because I had noticed that my learners often struggle with the same word multiple times in and across text as well as struggling to decode unknown or tricky words. 

 Below is a presentation that outline the problem of my learners, my inquiry focus and the first steps I will take in my inquiry. 

This is an exciting learning experience for me and if you have any advice I would love to hear it so please leave a comment.

  1. Struggling readers wont have the same opportunity to have their vocabulary enriched simply because they read less, at a lower level. Could a rich 'reading to' programme help?
    I look forward to following your inquiry and the impact your change practice has on your learners.
