The Reading Activity Handbook
The Reading Activity Handbook: Purposeful reading responses to enrich your literacy programme is a comprehensive collection of reading response ideas that includes 19 photocopy masters to support students’ learning. It is designed for teachers at all levels of primary and lower secondary.
Providing students with opportunities to engage in purposeful reading responses has many benefits including:

- creating opportunities to observe and monitor students’ comprehension
- providing authentic reading, writing, talking and creative experiences for students
- producing quality work that students value.
The responses in this book will benefit your students by:
- providing opportunities for student choice, which increases student motivation and engagement
- deepening levels of comprehension by requiring them to return to the text for different purposes
- enabling them to make personal connections with literature
- developing independence and positive self-image as a reader.
The Reading Activity Handbook: Purposeful reading responses to enrich your literacy programme is an essential reference to teachers when planning literacy sessions.
