How does it work?

We work with our partners St Patrick’s College, Drumcondra to provide professional development in this model. 

A Write to Read mentor provides on-site professional development for teachers that includes:

  • Provision of professional readings
  • DVDs/powerpoint presentations
  • Demonstration lessons
  • Non-evaluative observations of teaching
  • Regular opportunities for debate and reflection

Over time teachers are supported to:

  • Use assessment data to inform the delivery of a balanced literacy framework. 
  • Establish a daily 90 minute block of literacy instruction that includes a Writing Workshop, Reading Workshop and Word Work.
  • Deliver literacy programmes that encourage children to see themselves as readers, writers and thinkers and to take responsibility for their own learning.
