Part One (Y7)


Includes 30 one-hour lessons that have been scripted for easy use.

Recommended for use with Years 7 or 8 classes to develop vocabulary, fluency, comprehension and spelling.

The manual uses the following DVDs that are based upon books:

  • Holes
  • Bridge to Terabithia
  • Hook

Optional extras: Charlotte’s Web and March of the Penguins (documentary), used for several lessons.



Some of the activities are Surprise Subtitles, F.U.N.= Fluency, Understanding and Native Image, Read It –Get It, How’s Your Notes and Movie, Art A Glance plus many more!

This is an exciting and unique approach to teaching literacy skills. Students watch engaging films with the subtitle feature turned on. While they Read/Watch the films they engage in activities to develop vocabulary, fluency, comprehension and spelling.

NOTE: Parts One and Two are linked as Part Two contains three lessons that require the use of two DVDs from Part One. These are the only manuals linked this way.
