I am proud to announce that I’ll be delivering a workshop on the two dates. My workshop is for the Better Reading Support Partners as the Reading Support National Adviser. I can’t wait!
What are Better Reading Support Partners?
Better Reading Support Partners (BRSP) is an intervention for children in Years 1 to 10 who have fallen behind at reading. The children receive individual support. A Better Reading Support Partner is normally a teaching assistant or a volunteer who supports children three times a week. The child reads three books per session and the partner prompts, supports and discusses the books with them. The Partner has 2 days of training and is supported by a link teacher.
And it works. In 2013, children achieved an average reading age gain of 11 months after only 2 months of BRSP support. And that’s not all. Their comprehension ages rose by 10 months. Intervention in action.
