• Welcome!

    Hello and welcome to my blog. Here you'll find there are many ways to navigate through the postings. Try the new tag cloud below; or search by a key word (top right); or you can just follow the links at the top and bottom of every posting. For example, clicking on 'resources' in the tag cloud will give you all the downloads on this site.

    Clicking on the title of any posting will give you a feedback form for any comments that you'd care to leave and it will also expand the posting to its full form.

    Oh, and there's always the guestbook ;) [the link on the tab the top]

    I hope you enjoy the blog and find something useful, informative or entertaining.

    Andrew :)

Tracking Characters

Here’s one of my resources from the recent Conference (see previous post). This is an exercise that helps students to explore one of the skills of reading to deduce: how able readers can track multiple characters in a text.

The important element in using this piece of work with a group is not to focus on the ‘right’ answers but rather to highlight the strategies that students have used to deduce them. It can be a very enlightening reading activity to use with pairs of readers and exposes some of those invisible reading skills that seem so mysterious to less able readers.

It’s an A3 resource so download and print accordingly.
