The Fresh Start Handbook introduces teachers to all the Read Write Inc. resources and contains detailed instructions on how to implement Read Write Inc. Fresh Start as your literacy programme. This includes guidance on how to assess and group the pupils and how to ensure they progress through the scheme at the best rate for each pupil or group. Blueprint lesson plans are provided for teaching the phonics activities. There is also detailed guidance on how to use the Modules, which provide practice in reading, writing and spelling, and consolidate the pupils' knowledge through comprehension and guided composition. Suggested timetables and assessment charts are included. This new edition also contains details of the new Fresh Start More Anthologies (seven more fun, interesting Anthologies designed to provide extra reading practice through engaging and age-appropriate texts, including fiction, non-fiction, quizzes, playscripts and much more).
