|Reading and Comprehension Practice Book 1: Amazing People|
|Middle Years / Learning Support|
Reading and Comprehension Practice is a series of six books for learning support students. The series is designed to help the development of comprehension skills including reading, memory and thinking and may be used as part of independent work or group work. Each book contains 8 units of work, spread over three pages. The introductory page provides a passage which may be used in a shared reading situation or independently. Worksheet A invites students to select a summary of the passage they have read. Students are then asked to answer simple questions selecting the correct answer from the bottom of the page. Worksheet B is a more demanding page and requires students to write an independent summary about the passage. There follows a series of questions which students should answer without reference to the passage at the first attempt. Only when students have completed the questions to the best of their abilities may they refer to the text to complete any unanswered questions. The record chart provides teachers with a checklist of the work each student has covered and the level of attainment achieved.
