Developing inferential reading skills and Australian Curriculum focuses! Reading Conventions is an engaging series designed to assist teachers with improving students’ reading and comprehension skills. It has a specific focus on inferencing. The aim of Reading Conventions is to systematically provide all students with interesting and achievable activities, based on fulfilling national comprehension and reading requirements. Every unit has a central focus built around persuasive, imaginative or informative texts. These focuses add another dimension to the series by specifically targeting Australian Curriculum content.
Reading is fun, it's relaxing, and it is the building block of education. Comprehension is the essential goal of each and every reading task. Reading and comprehending exercises lay the foundation of comprehension skills that are essential for a lifetime of learning and pleasure. The more students practise, the more confident and capable they become.
Reading Conventions focuses on addressing the content descriptions and elaborations as specified in the Australian Curriculum. The inside front cover of each book features the descriptions and elaborations that are developed throughout the book, as each unit works towards the achievement of Australian Curriculum standards.
