Practical Writing Strategies: Engaging Activities for Secondary Students

Practical Writing Strategies: Engaging Activities for Secondary Students

Leon Furze, Benjamin White

Practical Reading Strategies introduces teachers to six highly effective strategies that every reader uses when grappling with texts. Through a range of engaging classroom activities, students will be introduced to Making Connections, Visualising, Questioning, Inferring, Summarising, and Synthesising as a way of making meaning and understanding what they read.

Activities range from focused close reading to group work and discussion, and are broken down into teacher and student instructions, clear examples, and the underlying theory.

With Practical Reading Strategies, all teachers can develop confidence in building their students’ abilities to read and understand.
