Improving Reading in Australia's Outback
Lyn Sharratt; Peter Hayes; James Coutts
Phi Delta Kappan, v97 n3 p18-22 Nov 2015
Ten years ago, six teachers established a program of literacy intervention and professional learning in remote northwestern Australia based on the Reading Recovery principles. This group of teachers was determined to learn what had to happen in order for them to make a difference with students and then to make it happen. Their work led to getting all the necessary players around the partnership table at the same time: all education sectors--local, regional, and national--noneducation government entities, business, parents, and other community partners.
