Sharp Reading is an approach to reading instruction based on 10 years of action research at NZGSE. It is for the mainstream classroom but also has huge applications for English as a second language learners, students with learning disabilities and homeschooling.
Beginning, struggling or confident readers all need to know the next step. The Sharp Reading online teacher training will ensure you meet the needs of your readers as you master their routines and strategies. Geared for beginning or experienced teachers, teams or whole schools, the Sharp Reading step-by-step tutorials, real in-class video footage and downloadable resources means you can watch, learn and teach in minutes.
Brian Parker and Hilton Ayrey were formerly tutors at the New Zealand Graduate School of Education (NZGSE), which is where the creation of ideas behind Sharp Reading began. Before that they clocked up many years of classroom teaching in their home town Christchurch and overseas. For the last 5 years they have been working full-time overseeing the implementation of their Sharp Reading programme internationally.
