Practical Reading Strategies introduces teachers to six highly effective strategies that every reader can use when grappling with texts.

Using a range of engaging classroom activities, teachers can guide students through the strategies of Making Connections, Visualising, Questioning, Inferring, Summarising and Synthesising. These will ultimately help students grasp meaning and gain understanding in what they read.

The variety of activities focus on close reading, working in pairs, group work and class discussions. Each contains instructions for teachers and students, along with clear examples and the underlying theory behind them.

Practical Reading Strategies is a valuable tool for all teachers to develop confidence in building their students' ability and enthusiasm to read and understand.
