CD ROM helps pupils read between the lines
Cracking Comprehension is the second programme Vivid are producing with Rising Stars, following the success of Scientific Enquiry.
The aim is to build comprehension skills by viewing different types of text in a variety of ways. Pupils can also listen to the text to develop listening comprehension.
First the class reads the story with the teacher, then they analyse the question, search the text for information and decide what their answer will be.
Extracts from the texts can be highlighted and copied to the ‘Crack it’ screen so the pupils can review what they have discovered and write their answer.
Their final answer can be checked against a model answer, so that the class and teacher can see how close they are to success.
