Making up for Lost Time in Literacy (MULTILIT) in Cape York Schools
MULTILIT Cape York Schools (MCYS) project is designed to embed sustainable high quality literacy instruction across a school and improve students' literacy outcomes.
MULTILIT is a proven form of literacy instruction that delivers significant gains in reading and spelling for low-progress readers.
MCYS establishes a MULTILIT tutorial centre in a school to develop sustainable quality literacy teaching. Activity involves training quality MULTILIT teachers, providing direct support to low progress readers, embedding the MULTILIT methodology in regular classrooms, and operating a reading club for parents to read with their child and engage in their learning.
MULTILIT in Cape York Schools is a five year old research project designed in partnership by Cape York Partnerships' (CYP) Every Child is Special (ECIS) Education Unit and MULTILIT with funding support by the Australian Government.
