Michael is drifting through high school until a storm strikes his town. Targeting Text Interactively: Imaginative Texts is the third, and final, release in this series of teacher resources for teaching text types using an interactive whiteboard. Students will find the text samples refreshing and engaging as they learn to write well in a variety of genres.
Targeting Comprehension Interactively - Middle Primary is a powerful CD-ROM for teaching comprehension using an interactive whiteboard. The CD-ROM features ten colourful and engaging text extracts in a variety of genres with an audio track. Each text is examined in stages using the following six strategies:

  • Personal connection — students are invited to relate to the text personally by considering their own or others personal experiences
  • Visualising — students are encouraged to create mental images to form unique interpretations, to clarify text and to remain engaged with the text.
  • Questioning — questions are posed about sections of the text to ensure students develop a deeper understanding of the content.
  • Summarising — students are asked to summarise the text in a succinct way and to recount it to their peers.
  • Monitoring — students are encouraged to think critically about the text and if it is cohesive and makes sense.
Each text also includes:
  • Pre-reading - Zone In section to engage students and prepare them for the text.
  • Word Works activities to reinforce comprehension, grammar, vocabulary and writing skills.
  • Teaching notes with additional fluency assessment activities.
  • Assessment questions that follow the three level comprehension guide format.
The text extracts can all be printed from the screen for photocopying and distribution.

Links to the Australian Curriculum are provided for each text extract.
