Connectors are 66 fiction/nonfiction books based on the principles of reciprocal teaching. In this approach, students work in small independent groups to develop comprehension and oral/language skills.

Modelled on the researched and proven Reciprocal Reading approach, explicit scaffolds in each book provide a structure for students to actively practise and develop their literacy skills and strategies in small peer groups – independent of the teacher.

Connectors will benefit your students by:
  • Increasing oral-language development through group discussion and listening to others
  • Developing comprehension strategies
  • Increasing vocabulary with high-interest words
  • Encouraging sharing, participation and cooperation with others
  • Developing confidence in taking leadership roles
  • Stimulating an interest in a variety of topics
  • Practising research skills.
