Corrective Reading Decoding

ACER Events

More dates coming soon.

Corrective Reading Decoding

The workshop will provide participants the tools and practice to teach students who cannot read the essential skill of how to 'break the code'. Participants will learn the skills to deliver the program effectively, improve their current instruction and increase student performance.

Participants will learn how to identify ineffective reading behaviours which thwart a student’s chances of gaining meaning from print.

Corrective Reading Decoding remediates primary and secondary students’ reading difficulties by explicitly teaching the skills of phonemic awareness, phonics and decoding. The workshop will assist teachers who plan to teach or have recently started teaching Corrective Reading Decoding.

The workshop is practically orientated and specifically designed to provide participants with functional skills to use in the classroom, including:

  • placement testing
  • materials to order
  • presentation techniques
  • signalling
  • correction procedures
  • data collection and analysis
  • assessments
  • behavioural change techniques.


Intended learning outcomes

Participants will be able to:

  • demonstrate the capacity to use Corrective Reading Decoding materials
  • teach students the skills of how to 'break the code'
  • analyse and critically evaluate the ability level of a student’s decoding skills
  • apply knowledge to implement direct instruction teaching strategies.

Delivery mode: Face-to-face

Time and duration: 7 hours

Resources: All required resources are provided, including course notes and stationery. All registrants will receive a certificate of participation at the conclusion of the workshop.
