About This PDF
Go Facts: Geography integrates reading and writing with the study of geography. The downloadable PDF resources are ideal for use as part of a literacy program or teaching of the Australian Curriculum: Humanities and Social Sciences— Geography.
This teaching guide includes teaching notes and student work sheets on reading and writing nonfiction for all 12 Go Facts: Geography titles, spanning Lower, Middle and Upper primary levels.
The reading lessons in this guide are suitable for the whole class or small groups, and fit easily into the guided reading component of a literacy program. The lessons teach effective reading strategies for processing nonfiction texts.
Daily writing is as important as daily reading. By following a reading lesson with a lesson in writing nonfiction, students learn to use the structures modelled in the Go Facts resources in their own writing.
The lesson work sheets provide opportunities for informal assessment throughout the lessons. Use the Assessment Checklists at the back of this guide to record a student’s progress by entering dates and/or comments.
