Navigating Reader V1.2

Contents page

Unlike a book, where each unit or section could be split over multiple pages, in these readers, each unit or section has its own single page. You can access all the pages from the contents page. The teacher resources on the contents page are general in nature, such as assessment rubrics, safety information, teaching programs, etc.

  1. Click the Teacher resources or Student resources button to open a menu that lists the resources that pertain to the whole text. Generally, the resources will be categorised. Click the category to open and view the resources. Each page of the text will have different teacher and student resources. Usually, the chapter overview will have resources that relate to the whole chapter, while each individual section or unit will contain teacher and student resources that relate to just that section or unit.
  2. The chapter titles are listed in large, bold text with the contents of each chapter listed below it. If you click on the chapter name, the contents will either appear or disappear. Just like when you click a Plus or Minus button in the Reader navigation. If you click the Plus button, you will open something and get more information. If you click a Minus button, you will minimise the content or hide the information.
  3. Click the Search button to be directed to the search facility. This button can be found in the same location on every page. If you'd just like to search within the current page of the Reader, you could use the browser's search facility. You can access this by pressing Ctrl and F on a PC or Apple/Command and F on a Mac.

The chapter listing can vary depending on the book – there may be extra content in some sections of text. Explore the variety of resources available for each page.

  1. Click the Full contents button to return to the contents page. This option will appear on every page.
  2. Click the Chapter contents button to navigate between the different pages in the current chapter.
  3. Other than teacher and student resources, each text may have different menu options. For example, Unit Review and Practical Activities. Both of these open in a small pop-up window to the right of the page.
  4. You can Add a link to a page for future reference or, if you're a teacher, you can add a link to all of your students' pages. To add a link to your students' Readers, you need to create a class before you add a link.
  5. You can also Add a note to your Reader page. If you're a teacher, you can add a note to your student's Reader as well. If you've already created a class for this Reader, there's no need to create another. See the section 'Add a note' for more information.
