Lift-Off to Literacy - Desmond College


Lift-off to Literacy is a short term classroom intervention that arose through collaboration in schools with trained Reading Recovery teachers, classroom teachers and LS/R teachers. 

Based on Marie Clay's (Reading Recovery) theories of reading and writing this course endeavours to provide a team approach to effective short term teaching of literacy in the classroom.  

The course is most suitable for class teachers of junior infants to 2nd class, learning support/resource teachers and any other teachers interested in early literacy acquisition. 

Tutors - Emma Keane and Karen Ward
