Shortlisted for a prestigious 2010 BETT award in the Primary Digital Content category.
Cracking Comprehension is a 4-disk CD ROM series that uses innovative ways of teaching reading comprehension skills to KS2 pupils. This is the second programme Vivid have produced with Rising Stars, following the success of Scientific Enquiry.
Each disk contains nine engaging and illustrated texts covering fiction, non-fiction and poetry.
When a text is selected you are taken through a defined sequence of reading the text, analysing a question, searching for evidence and then answering the question.
To answer a question, extracts from the texts can be highlighted and copied to the ‘Crack it’ screen so the pupils can look at the information they have found to help in writing their answer. This answer can then be checked against a model answer.
