Many school communities are excited by the new path that the NSW K-2 English syllabus is taking and they are ready to jump in feet first into evidence-based reading instruction. Armed with the understanding that a systematic and explicit approach to reading instruction is the most effective in reaching all learners, many schools are now seeking to understand what that might mean in their context.
At SPELD NSW we have the great privilege of working with teachers at various stages in their careers. In a lot of our Professional Learning and school-consulting work we hear the exasperated catch-cry ‘Why didn’t anyone ever teach me that?!’.
