Read, Write, Inc presentation/ workshop


 Share

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am a new member of this wonderful forum and my school is new to RWI. The week after next we are having our first presentation/ workshop for parents. We have never done this before and I was hoping that some of you could give me some ideas that have worked for you. We were thinking of doing a lesson with the parents then showing the power point. Thank you

Reading scheme devised by Ruth Miskin.

I don't use it but colleagues who do organise their whole school phonics around it - children are in small ability (regardless of age so, eg, can have able year 1 working with less able Year 3's) groups for intensive phonics for 30 mins or so every day.

Teachers have a script to follow and a range of specially written books to use. It has a whole vocabulary of its own - 'marshmallow clap'.

It seems to be gaining popularity around here, though I really don't like its rigidity.

Havin used Read Write Inc and Sounds and Letters and various other schemes over the years I honestly don't think any is any better than the other. What is important is that phonics is taught regularly (daily) and rigorously the scheme you use is immaterial it is the skill of the teacher not the scheme that matters.

I agree it's rigid and intense but as with everything if the teacher delivers it to the standard its supposed to, it can be very exciting! I can't argue that it delivers outstanding progress (seems to be quicker than the other schemes I've used). However you have to invest in the phonics and writing programme from Read Write Inc or the gap between reading and writing widens even more than usual.
