This 2-book, high-interest series caters for students who have left the junior primary but are still struggling with reading. This resource aims to capture their interest with a range of vibrant, relevant reading work units.
Each book is comprised of eight guided reading units presented in a variety of structures. Each unit has a detailed step-by-step lesson plan along with a learning intention, a text for the students to read (or for teacher to share) and a variety of follow up activities designed to improve literacy skills.
Engaging Reluctant Readers: Recount, Newspaper Article, Recipe, Non-Fiction, Poem, Comic and Diary.
Supporting Reluctant Readers: observe reading behaviours and provide appropriate support; model reading strategies by ‘thinking aloud’; and, engage students in discussion to build meaning and make inferences.
