This was an easy to follow on line course. I really liked that it was broken down into smaller videos which made it easy to squeeze in when i had a spare half an hour or so!
After doing the CrackingtheABCcode workshop I completed the online-reading level 2 workshop. The online workshop was user friendly and very informative. I am new to the program and have just started some students on level 2 and it has been useful to be able to go back on any points I was unsure of. Watching the videos of Lillian teaching points was really key for me as it made it so clear. I would recommend the workshop and would love to complete more myself.
A very thorough and informative course. The first unit was loaded with necessary information but delivered a little quickly. Some great examples and explanations provided within each unit of work.
This course goes into great depth and clarified many questions I had about implementing the Level 2 program. The ability to watch the different activities demonstrated has given me greater confidence when working with children and discussing the program with parents. After taking copious notes throughout, I now have a resource that I can refer to, to refresh my memory if needs be! Thankyou Lillian for creating such an excellent resource.
Really good content and the notes will certainly help. It’s very prescriptive and I do wonder if I’ll affect the outcome if I don’t do things exactly the same. Can we access the same videos again and again if we need to check up on certain areas?
A comprehensive course based on research-based evidence and what is obviously effective literacy practice. Each slide of the online course is packed with useful information that I definitely know I will refer to time and time again. The ‘Cracking the ABC Code’ is structured to enable the elements of effective reading instruction to continue beyond the one hour of specialised instruction. The programme is highly structured and systematic in its delivery and parents are trained to continue with daily, targeted support. In this way, robust consolidation helps the struggling reader become a confident reader. Dr Lillian Fawcett has designed a program that promotes success!
I found this online course very informative and an excellent resource to refer back to. My teaching of the Crackingtheabccode program has been in Level 3 and 4 and I found this course gave me a greater understanding of how the different levels of the program build on each other.
The course was helpful to me in many ways. As a tutor it was helpful to gain pointers on the actual delivery of the program. As a classroom teacher it has given me ideas to assist my students who aren't accessing reading at level.
I appreciate the research and evidence behind everything, very reassuring.
Thanks, Lillian for producing such a user friendly on line course. The six units were presented clearly with some video clips of the sections in action. This really made the course 'real'.
Each unit covered the key areas and was easy to listen to again for clarification. A truly valuable resource.
I thoroughly enjoyed completing this online course. It reinforced many vital and basic practices and gave me renewed confidence and enthusiasm. It provides a clear process which can be modified to suit individuals-outstanding!
The on-line Level 2 workshop created by Lillian is an excellent resource that is easy to navigate and packed with information. The six units cover every aspect of the programme in detail. The quizzes at the end of each unit ensure that you really understand the knowledge, skills and understandings that are so important to successfully implementing this programme. It was helpful to be able to watch some parts over again to fully understand the concepts being discussed. I found the explanation of the research behind the programme extremely useful. I appreciated how Lillian promptly answered my emails when I encountered something that needed clarifying. I feel I can confidently teach Level 2 to my students after completing this excellent on-line workshop.
The online course is easy to use, quick and informative. The videos are wonderful visuals and enhance the information Lillian speaks about in the units. The units make a great additional training source and revision after completing the face to face teacher training course.
A very thorough and informative course. It was great to be able to stop and listen again to the information, if needed. Some great examples and explanations provided. The workshop was easy to use and very informative. I would love to have a transcript of all that is said, however!
At last a course that fills the gap for those students with processing difficulties that "Multilit" and "Letters and Sounds" don't quite address. A detailed course that can be - and needs to be referred to regularly as one gains a thorough understanding of the well thought out methodology created by Dr Fawcett.
This on-line Reading Level 2 Workshop was the perfect supplement to the full-day face-to-face Multisensory Literacy Training. It provided structured and highly practical tips on how to effectively implement the Cracking the ABC Code program with younger students who know very few of the common digraphs. I found the content well organised and easy to access, and the quizzes kept me focused and thinking critically about what I was learning. I'm now looking forward with much anticipation to using level 2A with my first student, and feel well-prepared since completing this course.
I appreciated the delivery of information using templates, talking and videos. As a Special Education teacher,I could see the benefits of applying these methods to students with Literacy Difficulties. I found the research to support these practices fascinating. Although I made prolific notes, it is reassuring to know that I can go back into any of the online workshops to clarify information.
The course was very informative and very user friendly. I thoroughly enjoyed every unit, particularly the videos that modelled parts of lessons. I enjoyed the attention to detail and I can't wait to start working on the program with my students. Thankyou Lillian for developing this program. As a retired teacher with many years of experience working with students with learning difficulties this program is wonderful and goes further than other programs.
A fantastic course. The level 2 online workshop allows you to revisit the information and view as well as hear how the program should be implemented. A wonderful way of learning and consolidating the information. Dr Fawcett's step by step, direct and clear delivery through well structured videos enables you to access the information and answer the quiz questions, reinforcing your knowledge. I feel prepared and confident to implement what I have learned with my students. Fabulous!
I would like to complement Dr Fawcett on putting together an informative and easy to follow set of online modules.
Having used the program personally with my son for the past 18 months I found it invaluable to gain further insight into the research which went into formulating this learning tool. I am excited to continue "cracking the abc code" with my son and many other students.
I completed the full day introductory workshop and then followed it up with the online workshops. They are informative, easy to use and explain everything in a very straightforward manner. Thanks Lillian for making these available.
I found the course to be very detailed and informative. It was full of very useful information and step by step guides on how to support learners with literacy difficulties. The supporting resources are fantastic and I plan to use them in my future teaching. Thanks Lillian!
