    Hi guy's,

    What reading schemes do you use for KS3? Need ideas! Readers at KS2 level but need in intervention that works with 'street wise kids'

    It's such a shame we can't edit thread titles.

    You could use accelerated Reader. You have to subscribe.
    Barrington Stoke is an excellent publisher for high interest level/ low ability books for many ages.

    .. And ask politely that requests for support do not start with ' guys ' ( what did folk say before adopting this Americanism ? ;) ) whilst demonstrating misuse of the apostrophe ...

    Some of the mistakes in posts are tipping errors. Oh.. I meant typing errors. I used to do a lot of typing for my husband and he enjoyed pointing out all the tipping errors.

    It wasn't a personal slant just an observation. I'm known for epic typo's myself... fat fingers, poor eyesight and attention to detail in my case. Your conditions must make your job quite a challenge, all the best.

    Hi Lorna1982

    What is SCOLP? Trust you are getting well after your brain surgery.

    Accelerated Reader is good, but requires a huge buy in and not just in terms of resources - the whole school really needs to buy in, because there needs to be time allocated to it on the timetable - 20 mins a day.

    Have you done any diagnosis of the students' issues, as they may require different approaches?

    Reader Leader is a good, holistic approach that involves older students mentoring the weaker readers - this obviously suceeds/fails on the commitment levels of the older students.
    Lexia is an adaptive, online tool that is great for students who still have issues with phonics and blending.
    Inference works more at building comprehension and, funnily enough, inference skills - small groups (4) plus teacher/TA.

    There's also Read Write Inc, Literacy Box and Toe by Toe, though I am less familiar with these.

    Good luck.
