Reading Together® Te Pānui Ngātahi, (Reading Together®) is a research-based, four-session workshop programme that supports parents and whānau to effectively raise their children’s reading achievement.
Reading Together® is a proven programme that has a high impact on parents, children, school leadership, teachers, and the wider community. From participating in Reading Together® multiple valued outcomes occur for children, parents and whānau as well as for school and library communities.
To support the coming expansion of Reading Together® in the future, Pragmatica recently prepared an action-oriented research summary for Te Tāhuhu o te Mātauranga | Ministry of Education which describes ways schools implemented the programme effectively, including some challenges they overcame.
The report brings the evidence together to outline:
why Reading Together Te Pānui Ngātahi is a powerful educational opportunity
the programme outcomes for parents, whānau, aiga and children, and schools and communities
what works and doesn’t work for effective implementation
how schools can be supported to implement the programme.
The report also examines the support the Ministry of Education provided to schools in their implementation from 2007–2020.
The evaluation summary report can be found here.
