An easy-to-use resource for teaching essential reading skills to the whole class using an interactive whiteboard. This book accompanies the i-read 4 CD-ROM. It can be used alongside the CD-ROM for group and independent reading away from the interactive whiteboard. Series Editor Pie Corbett has specially commissioned whole non-fiction texts for i-read from a host of popular authors, to ensure a vibrant read. The collection covers a range of genres, from newspapers to explanations and persuasive texts.
