Focus on Reading

What is Focus on Reading?

At HSPA we implement the Department of Education's Focus on Reading strategies of comprehension across Years 3-12, including the explicit teaching of the 'Super 6' active reading strategies. Research has proven these strategies most effective when improving reading comprehension skills across all subject areas.

Using the Super 6 strategies (predicting, visualising, making connections, questioning, monitoring and summarising), allows students to gain a deeper understanding of how to make meaning of text. 

Following our successful parent workshops, we have compiled a collection of resources you can use at home to assist your child with reading comprehension. Access these resources here.
