Decodable phonics-based reading online events for NSW Teachers

Oxford University Press presents two live online free events exploring decodable phonics-based reading. The first event is for New South Wales educators in preparation for the Phonics Screening Check. The second is for all Australian educators to learn more about Oxford’s decodable phonics-based reading texts. Each session is interactive and will conclude with time for Q&A.

This 40-minute webinar, for educators in New South Wales considers the latest educational research and the teaching of reading to help prepare for the Phonics Screening Check. A Literacy Leader from South Australia will share her school’s experience of the Phonics Screening Check
