    Hi, what are people doing with regarding to improving comprehension for lower ability students? We use Fresh Start but are looking to find something which moves on from there. Has anyone used anything that they found particularly helpful?

    If I'm honest I use some of the entrance exam papers for selective schools. There are often two types and both are great for demonstrating and developing analytical skill. I teach the bottom set and they do respond well to the multiple choice responses and as a result their longer answer responses generally improve - although feedback and discussion on each answer is essential. It's not all I use but I find it adds a bit of variety. I don't give them the full exam btw, only the relevant sections.
