This teacher resource describes a highly successful strategy implemented by a network of four schools in Sydney to improve their students' reading in years 3 to 6. The Focus on Reading 3-6 professional learning program resulted in teachers developing and sharing their skills and experiences. There were also positive effects on student learning from a range of reading strategies. The resource includes a link to the program and is organised in nine sections: Summary; Target student group; Method; Results; Lessons learned; Next steps; Research base; Further reading and links; and Contacts.
