Each Teacher's Guide covers 40 group reading sessions including discussion
topics and independent writing tasks.
The Teacher's Guide contains for each of the texts: overviews for
the teacher, focus questions to help prepare the children for the
first reading, detailed questions about the text features and content
to help the teacher guide pupils back to the text for the
second reading, Discussion questions that encourage re-reading, summarising
and synthesising and Writing Tasks that require re-reading
and higher order thinking skills. All of which help develop
close reading skills (Close reading describes the careful, sustained
interpretation of a brief passage of text. Research links the
close reading of text to significant gains in reading).
