This resource is designed to enhance independent reading and encourage discussion between pupils and teachers at KS3 and KS2. Originally designed to work with the Accelerated Reader programme, it would work equally well with any independent reading activity.

A quick and easy way to show targeted, differentiated work for pupils, and to guide pupils to critically analyse texts as they read.

The sheet features a range of questions of varying difficulty. During independent reading lessons, the teacher easily differentiates for individual pupils by ticking next to a particular question, which will indicate to the pupil a topic that they will be discussing with their teacher later in the lesson. There is a space for the pupil to write notes in preparation for this discussion. Later in the lesson, the teacher returns to the pupil and asks them to answer the question indicated to them in relation to the text they have been reading that lesson.

A copy of this sheet could be given to each member of the class, or just to certain key pupils. I have also had some success using it as a frame for peer conversations.

The sheet is designed to be printed onto A3 and then laminated, meaning it can written on in white board pens (always exciting for pupils!) and reused several times.
