This powerful 32-page book explores strategies for reading
in and out of the classroom. From focusing on meaning and technique to sharing
and transforming texts, Reading in the Real World is full of simple yet effective
ways to read all text forms with confidence.
Comprehension strategies to use before, during and after
reading help students discover how meaning and technique work together to
real-world texts. Based on the many forms of texts that modern readers
encounter, the book uses familiar genres to guide readers to a better
understanding of new text formats. It includes reproducible organisers and
examples from a variety of media – ranging from stories and poetry to comics
and print advertisements – to help readers make the most of the texts that
surround them in their real lives.
In a short and accessible form, this book outlines
innovative approaches and activities that will motivate students to read
effectively and with enthusiasm.
