Comprehension

Facilitator Support Model 2012

The Comprehension Facilitator Support Model will again be offered to the Northern Adelaide Region sites in 2012. The aim of this model is to build the capacity of literacy leaders in sites. 14 modules are offered by the Regional Curriculum Consultants. All materials (PowerPoints, videos, readings, handouts, activities and resources) are supplied to the site based facilitators. The facilitators can then adapt the materials to suit their particular contexts.

Please note: This professional learning is restricted to personnel from the Northern Adelaide Region.
