Oxford Literacy has been designed specifically to support guided reading in the first three years of school. The Oxford Literacy fiction and non-fiction guided reading texts recognise that a guided reading group in a 'real' classroom never has every student on the same level; therefore, the texts and supporting teaching versions allow educators to work with small groups of students across a range of levels within their stage of reading.The teaching version for each text scaffolds the educator through the guided reading session. The focus is on developing students' ability to use meaning, structure and visual information, to read the supporting visual literacy, and it also includes links to the Oxford Wordlist.For more information about the Oxford Wordlist, go to www.oup.com.au/thesuccessfulteacher or www.oxfordwordlist.com.
