About This PDF
Go Facts: Australia integrates reading and writing with the study of Australian history. The downloadable PDF resources are ideal for use as part of a literacy program or teaching of the Australian Curriculum: History.
This teaching guide includes teaching notes and student work sheets on reading and writing nonfiction for all 12 Go Facts: Australia titles.
The reading lessons in this guide are suitable for the whole class or small groups and fit easily into the guided component of a reading 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.
