Getting Started with Phonics - Workshop for Teachers


Phonics instruction should be a part of every classroom program. Most schools include it in their early literacy programs, however not all phonics approaches produce the same results.  ‘Getting Started with Phonics’ will unpack different methodologies of phonics teaching, present the evidence for effective instruction and outline what high impact teaching can look like in your classroom.

Jocelyn brings the research of reading instruction to life in a day that is full to the brim with easily understood information, practical strategies and real-life wisdom. Suitable for both beginning and experienced teachers, this full day program will equip you and your team with the knowledge and strategies to maximise your students’ results in 2020. 

This workshop is brought to you by BEAM Consulting and presented by Jocelyn Seamer.


About Jocelyn Seamer

Jocelyn is committed to promoting research and evidence-based literacy practices in reading instruction including explicit teaching in the ‘Big 6’ – oral language, phonological awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary and comprehension. She teaches reading and writing instruction methods according to the ‘simple view’, which honours the importance of oral language development as well as the necessary skills of decoding and encoding.

Jocelyn's experience working with vulnerable and disadvantaged children in remote areas of Australia has given her the proof that all children can learn to read and write, regardless of disability, location, socio-economic status or cultural background.
