Here an expert literacy practitioner works with Year 3 and 4 students at Wyndham Park Primary School. In a reading workshop she models for a number of teachers how to improve students' comprehension by using the four strategies of 'Reciprocal teaching': predicting, clarifying, questioning, and summarising. The model lesson allows her to identify reading interventions at the clarifying and questioning stages, which the teachers can then address with their students through follow-up practice.
At Wyndham Park Primary School, the Principal and leadership team support high quality professional learning opportunities for colleagues. One strategy involves expert mentoring to improve student learning in literacy. Classroom teachers are given the opportunity to observe the mentor working in a classroom environment. The school was established in 2011. Its over 300 students are drawn from diverse socio-economic and cultural backgrounds.
