Read Write Inc. Fresh Start: Anthology 1 by Ruth Miskin
This new edition of Read Write Inc. Fresh Start rescues pupils aged 9 and above who are below age-related expectations, using a phonics-based approach. Read Write Inc. Fresh Start gives older pupils who have not yet cracked the 'code of reading' the chance to catch up and become confident, fluent readers and writers - enabling them to access the secondary curriculum. Read Write Inc. Fresh Start Anthologies are motivating, full-colour, magazine-style texts to provide further practice of the sounds and graphemes taught in the Fresh Start Modules. They contain a variety of lively non-fiction, poetry and fiction texts, including quizzes, playscripts and comic strips, to motivate the students to read for pleasure. The Anthology texts should be read in order after each Module is completed, to ensure students are reading within their phonic knowledge and so experience success in reading. The subjects of the Anthology texts are linked to the Module texts so that some of the vocabulary students meet will be familiar and so support independent reading. The Anthologies are fully integrated within the Fresh Start programme and support teachers with effective lesson planning and organisation.
