Yes We Can Read – the one-to-one tool to teach reading

yeswecanread-01Yes We Can Read is a phonics-based tool to  develop reading for meaning. It enables a fluent reader – without any training or qualifications – to teach a non-reader to read.

This award-winning book guides the coach through the whole process – teaching the phonic sounds of the alphabet, blending sounds, building words and sentences and on towards reading fluency. It is a fun and engaging way to learn for anyone aged 8 – 80 who struggles to read, building confidence and self-esteem in both coach and learner.

Peer teaching to catch up in reading

Brune Park Community School has pioneered a scheme to support Year 7 students with their reading. Year 11 students and Year 7 students are paired up together, with Year 11 students acting as coaches using Yes We Can Read. They coach before school and during morning registration on a daily basis, so there is no disruption to the school organisation or lessons

“The results are extraordinary – for learners and for our coaches as well. I have a queue of Year 10 and 11 students who want to teach reading.”

“The effect on the behaviour, attendance and self-esteem of both coaches and learners is amazing,” says Headteacher Richard Kelly. “There is a much calmer and more purposeful atmosphere around the school.”
