Reading unit for older students

June 14, 2009

Boy reading on grassGetting boys to read is a struggle faced by many teachers. Here is a unit designed for and implemented originally in an all boys school; it’s aim is to promote the value of reading. The language and format are based on the Queensland 2008 Senior English Syllabus (Open Trail version), but the unit could be easily adapted for schools in other authorities. (In fact, orginally the unit was designed for the 2002 Senior English syllabus in Queensland and only minor changes had to be made for the new syllabus.)
