Reading & Writing
JEI Reading & Writing is a literature-based, enrichment program that helps students strengthen reading comprehension and writing skills. The program features fiction and nonfiction as well as other genres of literature.
Students in grades Y3 to Y8 who possess basic language arts skills and are interested in exploring various types of literature genres are welcome to enroll in the program. There are ten monthly units in each grade level. Each unit has a 4-week program that progresses naturally with the introduction of ten books - both fiction and nonfiction - and fosters reading comprehension, writing, proofreading, and editing skills. Every fourth week is a lesson on a specific genre or aspect of writing, which teaches students how to work within the parameters of different forms.
Aligned with the Australian Curriculum developed by The Australian Curriculum Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA), this program offers excellent preparation for academic assessment tests.
