Using higher order thinking and multiple intelligences in reading.
Graded to meet the requirements of the NSW English curriculum at Grades 3?6, and equivalent levels in other states and territories.
Each book addresses all nine text types as prescribed in the NSW English syllabus:
factual and literary description
factual and literary recount
There are 27 units of work in each book, three units per text type, based around high interest topical reading matter relevant to the target age groups: sports, food, music, TV, issues of concern and favoured literature.
As well as fundamental comprehension and inferential activities, there are also higher order thinking activities.
These encourage students to become independent enthusiastic learners and are fostered through the use of Bloom?s Revised Hierarchy and Gardner?s Eight Multiple Intelligences.
