SHARP Stories

Our SHARP Stories are texts we have produced over the years to support our approach to reading instruction beyond decoding. Of course you can use them in any way you wish!
You will find fiction and non fiction text from reading ages 7yr to 16 yrs; high interest text that has been subject to much scrutiny and feedback by the readers in many classrooms.
