A Debatable Issue
Literacy Network contains a wide variety of non-fiction stories. The exciting design and photos from real events will capture the interest of intermediate phase learners. The different text types/literacy genres offer opportunities for cross curricular learning. The comprehension questions and extension activities at the back of the book provide teachers with tools to assess development and integrate reading into the wider curriculum.
Literacy Network is built on an explicit teaching framework, the teaching/learning approach provides:
- Focused guided reading instruction
- Independent reading opportunities
- Explicit writing experience
- Opportunities for students to critically analyse what they read.
