Program Description

How can I best use Guided Reading to support my learners?

Through three online workshops Julie Shepherd will support participants to understand focused teaching within the Guided Reading process. Participants will:

As participants implement and reflect on their learning within their school context, further support will be available from Lead Quality Teaching Coaches.
