Talk About Texts

A talk and vocabulary-focused approach for rich guided reading.

With its unique approach, Talk About Texts integrates the teaching of reading, vocabulary and oral language skills into one rich and effective program which will help you to save time and achieve more.

The Talk About Texts resources seamlessly integrate a number of oral language instructional strategies to teach the four elements of talk through your guided reading sessions: listening and responding, building vocabulary, having fluent conversations and questioning.

Both Vocabulary for Reading and Vocabulary for Talking are robustly taught and practised throughout the guided reading sessions using a variety of strategies, including focused questions, answer frameworks and flashcard use.

Talk About Texts’ talk-based approach also provides the perfect opportunity to prepare students for writing with opportunities for oral rehearsal followed by quick post-reading activities.

The series includes:

  • 160 Student Books
  • 160 Student eBooks
  • 160 Teacher’s Editions corresponding to each Student Book
  • Teacher Guide, including Digital Teacher Resources and Flashcards for each year level.
