Product description

Connectors is a groundbreaking reading scheme which narrows the attainment gap through peer-to-peer learning. Children work in small independent groups, each taking a turn to be the leader as they read a book together.

Clear prompts represented by coloured faces show each child when it is their turn to read and lead, and how to focus group debate by asking the others to predict outcomes, clarify issues and pose questions. This exciting approach builds reading and listening skills and promotes teamwork and participation.

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.

Now, for the first time, the Connectors series branches out into fiction, allowing children to develop their skills by enjoying lively book-banded stories. In Marco’s Hero, Rico inherits an annoying little step-brother who keeps meddling with his stuff. But when Rico learns that he is Marco’s hero and that Marco is very sick, things change between them…

This pack contains six copies of Marco’s Hero, graded for Book Band Gold.
