For Teachers

  1. Guided reading used to be one of Grayson’s most dreaded lessons when it came to planning. Therefore, he thought he’d create over a term’s worth of SAT’s style questions for his book, Etty Steele Vampire Hunter, to make teachers’ lives a little easier. There are about 15 questions for each chapter and they are split into these domains: Vocab, Infer, Predict, Explain, Retrieve, Summarise. Visit TES to access the resource (complete with answers) for FREE!
