This book is part of the Lawler Education list, a name that is trusted by teachers. This book gives teachers worksheets and learning activities that they can engage children with at this important stage in their development.
This versatile resource is suitable for students of all ages who require support and help in improving their literacy and numeracy skills. This set of 30 short stories on adult-oriented topics (illustrated with photographs) encourages learning by using simple, repetitious words in short sentences that gradually increase in length and difficulty. The comprehension activities that accompany each story use a number of questioning strategies, including literal, inferential and evaluative.
The stories are carefully graded and a scale of readability is provided so that teachers can carefully match the stories to the needs of their learners.
The book comes with interactive software to help children learn the correct words and to get them actively engaged with their own learning and engaging in what theorists call ‘scaffolding their own learning’. The purchaser buys rights to copy the sheets and use them in their school.
Lawler Education is led by Dr Graham Lawler a nationally recognised expert in education and has advised both the BBC and Channel 4 TV on their education output and is a regular commentator on education, on the BBC. He now develops young teachers as authors. Such is the expertise behind this book.
