2015 – BYETC’s Year of Reading

10/02/2015
​Week 7 Word of the Week - Self-efficacy

​One of the key school priorities for BYETC in 2015 is to implement a reading program to develop the reading skills of our students. To ensure improvement BYETC English teachers will devote the first phase of each lesson to the instruction of reading. 

Through explicit reading instruction it is expected that the acquisition of reading skills will be accelerated and there will be an overall increase in reading confidence. It is also hoped that through a more targeted approach teachers will better understand the reading behaviours of their students and the unique challenges of our student population.
Among the many initiatives which comprise the reading program are shared reading time, choral reading and word of the week.
