Ready to Read: Maximizing the Use of Instructional Series and its Resources
The Ready to Read texts from the Instructional series of reading texts are a rich and diverse resource but they are often under-utilised for everyday guided or shared reading lessons. This workshop will support teachers to become confident with using them effectively. There will be time to unpack the teacher support materials that are available for the Ready to Read texts, look at how the texts sit alongside the Literacy Learning Progressions and understand how they provide a platform for developing successful readers who reach or exceed national expectations. Opportunities for learning to decode, make meaning and think critically using the Ready to Read texts will also be part of the workshop.
Teacher Education Refresh Programme
The Teacher Education Refresh (TER) programme is currently funded by the Ministry of Education for those teacher required by the Teaching Council to complete a TER.
The Kohia Centre programme can be completed in 2–3 months. It is delivered through a combination of 4 face-to-face workshop days, online modules/tasks and a 4 week practicum in a school. (Teachers already employed in long term teaching positions can use their current position to demonstrate effective teaching practice).
