Another excellent series for low achievers in secondary school from Australian author Margaret Warner, “Read and Succeed” revisits a variety of comprehension and language skills through the medium of a selection of non-fiction texts on fascinating subjects.
“Secondary students experiencing difficulty with reading must be retaught basic literacy skills and concepts that they may have had difficulty processing in earlier years for whatever reason. When they acquire these skills, they will begin to gain confidence putting them into practice.
Students at lower secondary level who are not reading at their expected level of competency are more likely to engage with texts about fascinating subjects. In “Read and Succeed”, students will read a range of texts that are likely to be of interest to them and complete language activities that focus on the student succeeding with reading. The books use short paragraphs to develop key ideas.” (From the teachers’ notes)
