Ready to Read in literacy programmes

Effective literacy programmes meet the needs of diverse learners by providing focused, strategic instruction in a supportive classroom environment. In New Zealand, the Ready to Read series is a key component of effective literacy programmes in years 1–3. The rich texts support a wide range of teaching purposes and support students to read, respond, and think critically.

Learners need teachers who plan carefully for reading instruction; draw on knowledge of their students and their knowledge of literacy learning to select appropriate texts; and choose approaches to reading and activities that meet their students’ needs.
