A visitorship report by Michelle Yudelowitz, Bellavista School
Under the supervision and leadership of Dr Melissa Orkin, director of the Summer School Program at Tufts University, Boston, USA, I observed the application of the RAVE-O program in conjunction with the WILSON phonic program during their 2015 summer break. This was a five week program that took place at the Center for Reading and Language Research.
My motivation was to review best practice of the RAVE-O reading program currently being implemented at our school.
This was to ensure that the execution of the program was optimised and of benefit to the learners at Bellavista School, as well as the Independent and GDE (Gauteng Department of Education) schools that Bellavista works with and mentors.
