Comprehension interactive is a CD-rom, which provides comprehension activities. The CD-rom provides a variety of texts, from fiction to non-fiction, with supporting questions. In practice, this could be used with small groups or with the whole class using the interactive whiteboard. The different CD-Roms are year group specific. However, adaptions could be made in practice, such as thinking of your own comprehension questions, or extending these to meet particular needs within the class.
