Destination Reader

Destination Reader is a structured approach to the explicit teaching of reading.  The reading strategies used support comprehension and promote a rich reading culture using high quality texts central to the curriculum.  In lessons, children are encouraged to learn with independence based on learning behaviours and partner work.  The lesson comprises of the direct teaching of reading, high levels of talk and uses the domains of reading to enable a deeper understanding of texts.  Children delve deeply into the chosen text to instil a love of reading for pleasure.
