About This PDF
Go Facts: Australian History Set II integrates reading and writing with the study of Australian history. The downloadable PDF resources are ideal for use as part of an English literacy program or teaching of the Australian Curriculum: Humanities and Social Sciences (HASS).
This teaching guide includes teaching notes and student work sheets on reading and writing nonfiction for all 12 Go Facts: Australian History Set II 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.
By combining reading and writing lessons based on the same text, 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.
