Product description

Connectors is a groundbreaking reciprocal reading series which narrows the attainment gap through peer-to-peer learning. Children work in small independent groups, each taking short turns to be the leader as they read a book together and debate issues raised in the text.

Clear prompts represented by coloured faces show each child when it is their turn to read and lead, and how to focus the discussion to engage their team members. This exciting approach builds reading and listening skills, promotes successful teamwork and encourages every child to participate.

The Sutton Trust ranks peer tutoring as one of the most effective ways to improve achievement, with disadvantaged and low achieving pupils making particular gains. Formal classroom trials of Connectors show children’s reading age leaping forward by an average of 9.1 months in just 12 weeks. Class guided reading time is also increased by up to five times.

Scams, Schemes, Cons and Hoaxes explores how, throughout history, people have played tricks on others. Some tricks are simply funny, but others can be dangerous or very expensive. Can you recognise a scam when you see it?
