Reading Between the Lines Set Two is a sequel to the popular Reading Between the Lines. It is a resource book for teachers, teaching assistants, SENCOs and Speech and Language Therapists who need to support the development of inference skills in children aged 8–12. These unique guides offer accessible and easy-to-use material specifically targeted to improve inference, which is a crucial element in understanding spoken and written language.
The book provides 370 engaging texts themed around different areas such as place and occupation, and includes short stories about everyday events, magic and adventure. Each short text is accompanied by guiding questions and is carefully graded to allow students to gradually progress from more simple texts with highlighted clues onto more challenging scenarios which will require higher level inferencing skills.
Containing handy photocopiable material, this guide can be used with whole classes, small groups or individual children. It will be particularly valuable to professionals working with children who have Autism Spectrum Disorders or Speech, Language and Communication Needs, who need particular support with inference as they develop their broader social communication skills.
