Teaching Ideas

With so many different authors and genres.

Use the Reading Zone to set up guided reading in the classroom:

  • Choose six different ones. Groups of five students, each with a different book.
  • Show each group their author introduction ( they are usually less than 8 minutes). This could be at any point during their reading.
  • Allow them to read independently but make use of the guided questions.


  • Discuss any prior knowledge of this author
  • Discuss the title, cover, illustrations...
  • Predict what the story might be about


  • Point out details to each other
  • Compare/contrast/analyse the chapters
  • Give your opinions on characters and events
  • Make inferences
  • Look at the way people and places are described
