Course Description

The Foundation school year is incredibly complex to teach. Those working within the Foundation year require strong theoretical knowledge, the ability to deliver their instruction in an explicit and focused manner and time-efficient tracking processes to determine the rate of progress and then next elements to introduce.

Typically children read 1st, spell 2nd and write 3rd. This typical progression into literacy starts first with targeting the ‘specific’ pre-literacy skills. By explicitly instructing the prerequisites for literacy, greater numbers of students achieve a strong start.

The complication in the Foundation classrooms is that students present with a range in ability; delayed skills, age-appropriate skills and advanced skills. The course provides resources, explanations and demonstrations focused upon explicit instruction for the three different ability groupings. Read More.
