MultiLit  2017


Busby West Public School has chosen to continue on with the great work that was done by the MultiLit team in 2016 for the Bill Crews Charitable Trust, MultiLit Literacy Program. 

This year we have dedicated two teachers and an SLSO to work with selected students.

Selected students receive one hour of small group instruction, four days a week (4-5 students per group), with an extra 20 minutes of individual Reinforced Reading with a teacher or trained SLSO.

These students will receive daily intensive literacy instruction for up to one semester.

The MacqLit Program is an explicit and systematic reading intervention program for small groups of older low-progress readers. It provides teachers with a comprehensive sequence of lessons that includes all the key components necessary for effective reading instruction: phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary and comprehension.
