Sounds-Write: A High Quality Evidence-Based Phonics Program 4 Day Workshop 120A

* This is a 4 day workshop is held on Thursday 23rd, Friday 24th, Tuesday 28th & Wednesday 29th January 2020

Sounds-Write is an evidence-based phonics program utilising an exciting and highly successful approach to the teaching of reading, spelling and writing.
This four day intensive course offers an instructional method that is structured, cumulative, sequential and explicit; all of which are strongly recommended for teaching children to read and spell. It places emphasis on providing practice that is grounded in physical, concrete experience of the skills and conceptual understanding that students need to assimilate. Sounds-Write is developmentally appropriate for beginning readers in foundation, Year 1 and Year 2, and also offers fast and highly effective intervention for children at all year levels who have fallen behind in their reading and spelling from Year 3 onwards.

Presenter: Margie Backhouse

Margie is both a primary teacher with 26 years’ experience and a fully registered Sounds~Write trainer. She has specialised in learning difficulties and literacy
and held a number of senior positions in this area. Margie has worked at DSF
for four years and since 2013 has been running Sounds~Write training both on-site at DSF and off-site at schools. She has taught Sounds~Write in a whole class teaching situation, in small groups and to individual students, including via an online
classroom. Margie’s view is that Sounds~Write results in better teaching.

* Booking includes all 4 days 23rd, 24th, 28th & 29th January 2020
