This print-and-teach complete Wide Reading unit includes a printable student booklet and teacher unit plan so you can hit the ground running and get your students reading a variety of books and responding with interesting tasks.

This complete reading unit suits any Junior Secondary English class in Australia & New Zealand. Perfect for students of approximately 13-14 years of age: New Zealand Year 9 or 10 students, Australian Year 8 or 9 students, and UK Key Stage 3 students. This product has British English spelling throughout.

Students have to read 6 different text types and complete 3 of 9 possible reading response tasks of their choice. The idea is that they complete the unit throughout the year - you spend a week setting it up near the start and then a little time here and there to keep them on track with their reading and writing tasks. At the end of the year, all 3 reading response tasks can be included in a total grade.

Student Booklet includes:

  • Cover Page
  • Task Sheets with task outline, check-in dates and tasks to choose from
  • Reading Log Template
  • Booklist to help with text choice - grouped by year level
  • Planning pages for each task
  • Book Suggestions with authors in levelled grid for Year 9,10,11
  • Marking schedule

+ Teaching unit plan and unit outline.

14 pages.
