This week, we are really pleased to acknowledge another achievement for our Reading Tutor Program. Charlotte G brings our successful graduates from the program to eight.
MultiLit was coined as an
acronym for ‘Making Up Lost Time In Literacy’. The program aims to
support students to sharpen their reading through “Word Attack Skills” and
This approach is non-categorical. Labels have not been
found to be useful in determining how a child can best be helped to learn. RTP
reflects a contemporary approach to best practice literacy instruction as
identified by international reading scientists and as reflected by the reports
of the US National Reading Panel (2000), the (Australian) National Inquiry into
the Teaching of Literacy (2005), and the (UK) Rose Report (2006).
Congratulations to Charlotte,
and all our graduates, and congratulations to those students who continue with
the program and work super-hard every Tutor session.
