Program embraces back to basics approach for learning

WARWICK High School is taking it back to primary school basics.

It is developing a new reading program designed to get parents involved in their child's learning.

Identified students will take part in a trial program which sees parents work with teachers to become reading mentors.

Students will be expected to read and discuss texts with their parents/guardians on a weekly basis and with them complete literacy activities associated with those texts.

Literacy and numeracy teacher Tanya Wright said the aim of the program was to improve reading fluency, improve comprehension, improve vocabulary and develop parent partnerships within the school.

"To improve literacy and numeracy across the school, working with parents is essential," Mrs Wright said.

"Reading is the basis for all learning, therefore, using a focused reading model with parents, is one of many ways we are supporting the needs of our school community."
