What you're saying

  • This way of teaching has made our lessons more engaging. We are reminded of past content through daily reviews so I am able to remember and recall information a lot better. By going back to past content and reminding us of these concepts we don’t forget it and I am able to better recall that information.

  • The class is very engaging and I feel comfortable contributing to class discussions because of the environment of the classroom and the teaching style of my teacher.

  • I love teaching in this way allows children to be their best self, which makes you feel good as a teacher and you just want to keep building them up which is then building you up. I learn so much from watching others, to then have others come into my class to observe my lessons and watch me, I am so open share and collaborate and build each other up, that is the best thing about this Catalyst journey

  • I’ve seen a significant growth in student knowledge and deep understanding of the literacy concepts within my Stage 1 classroom. Student engagement is high due to the fast pace of delivery, visual scaffolds, and multisensory movement to embed concepts being taught.

  • Our journey at Sacred Heart has set us on a focused path to improving students’ outcomes for reading and writing. We were also seeking common language across the school around the science of reading - we are now well on our way!
