‘Famous People’ covers a range of people from inventors to peace activists to artists from around the world. Each cloze exercise is followed by comprehension exercises and a range of activities such as crosswords, research and written language components to extend the learning further. Both books include teaching notes for each theme, for introducing and following up the activities, which are linked to the key learning areas of reading and writing. But they also incorporate many other curriculum areas for a meaningful, integrated approach to learning.

Cloze activities are principally designed to encourage students to predict words using meaning, syntax and graphophonics. Prediction is a very important strategy for successful reading and must be encouraged in all children.
