Read on The Ice Man by Alan Parkinson, Mike GouldWhen a body was discovered by two German hikers walking in the Alps in 1991, little did they realise it had been there for over 5000 years...Who was Otzi the Ice Man, as he has become known? What did scientists find out by examining his remains? And what further finds from the ancient past might our changing climate reveal? *Help Key Stage 3 students move from Level 3a to Level 4c in reading. *Support comprehension with the amazing photographs from the South Tyrol Museum of Archaeology. *Encourage shared and guided reading using the ready-made tasks and discussion points on the activity pages at the back of the book
'Boys were very excited and I haven't seen boys of this ability as engaged in their reading. Students had no idea what a gladiator was and were impressed when they found out. All wanted to be gladiators by the end of it! Much better than the competition.'
'At the end of the session, three boys asked if they could take Lone Wolf home. This has never happened before.'
'Students loved Lone Wolf. The pace was good and they enjoyed the illustrations. The amount of text per page was good and lent itself to listening to children reading aloud in a group. My dyslexic children found the pages easier to read because of the line spacing. Some great opportunities for extension work.'
'Liam by Benjamin Zephaniah was very enjoyable and funny for teenagers: high interest level and clearly written, accessible and engaging, with topics that young people can relate to. Would appeal to weak readers at KS4 as well as KS3 which is a major strength.'
