Beth Gregory from Chipping Campden School (a secondary) suggests: “Before class begins, we use our whiteboards to project the openings of novels or works of non-fiction to give students something to read and to think about while sorting out books and registers. The title of the book is given, so if students get “stuck in”, they can check out the entire work for themselves. After studying a novel in class, we post openings of similar novels or works by the same author. . .”If you liked this, you might like. . .” Using the openings has been a successful way to enter the world of a book in a matter or minutes. “
