Skills for Writing Student Book Pack - Units 1 to 6
The evidence-based approach to accelerating progress in writing at KS3.
Three full-colour Student Books each contain two of the six units of work, making it easy to use different units with different year groups.
Learning objectives at the start of each lesson explain the grammar focus and how it will be used to achieve a certain effect.
Extracts from real texts demonstrate the different effects that writers use and model how grammar choices can create these effects.
Each fiction unit draws on several novels and students should be encouraged to read full texts independently or as a class alongside the units.
Activities give students a chance to put their learning into practice, experimenting with creating different effects in their writing and then reflecting on it. These help to develop the core writing and linguistic analysis skills required at KS3 and into GCSE.
