Guided Reading. Using the Ready to Read series, with Andy Butler
This workshop focuses on using the Ready to Read series to help explore our beliefs about reading, unpack what an effective reading programme looks like, look at key elements about reading from Effective Literacy Practice and examine our practice around guided reading. Opportunities for learning to decode, make meaning and think critically using the Ready to Read texts will also be part of the workshop.
