Course Description

This course includes over 2 hours of video content and over 240 slides you can refer to during the course and download so you can refer to them later. Here's an outline of what the course is about:

Each classroom has a range in ability. The course outlines a process which enables teachers to be comfortable with the range in ability, and flexible enough to devise a process that matches student ability.

The first step is assessing the class. A simple time efficient non-standardised spelling test is provided. It identifies the gaps in knowledge and/or the level at which students are currently at.

On the basis of the results (and the range in ability) next a synthetic phonics approach is outlined which aims to deliver significant spelling and phonics skill development.


This cost effective short course is comprised of 6 installments

Installment 1: Screening to establish the range in ability within a middle or upper primary class.
