Fantastic example of a recount text.,
This review is from: Nelson Mandela (Pull Ahead Biographies S.) (Paperback)
I have been using this book for two years now as a source for the biography / autobiography work in literacy that is taught in Year 6. I use it as a source for my lower ability / SEN pupils who would have difficulty in accessing the level of reading in Long Walk To Freedom. It is simply written, with an appropriate level of detail and use of pictures. I actually used it in an interview, having scanned the pages of the book so I could use them on an interactive whiteboard. The Headteacher commented on my great use of resources and how appropriate the book was to what I was teaching, how it was great to see non-fiction used in such an enthusiastic way, and how the level was appropriate to the year 3/4 class that I was teaching.
The only thing that they could do to improve this range of books would be to supply them on a CD-Rom so that they could be used in the classroom on the Interactive whiteboard. This would be a resource that I would definitely purchase.
A great book, which I will be continuing to use in my classroom practice. Highly recommended!!!
