Front Cover
Nelson Thornes, 2001 - 128 pages
Responding to the demands of the Framework for Teaching English, Years 7-9, within the context of the revised National Curriculum, the Level Best series offers a carefully structured and motivating approach to English for 11 to 14 year-olds. Making clear the purpose and structure of each unit and the skills being developed, the books offer opening questions for discussion in small groups and provide opportunities throughout to learn in a variety of ways. Encouraging students throughout to examine and explain how they reached their conclusions, the series provides plenty of support in order to increase confidence and achievement. It aims to guide students towards realistic targets by encouraging reflection on what has been learnt during the course of each unit before moving on to the next level. The Teacher Resource Books provide extensive support, including suggestions for teaching styles, model answers and photocopiable worksheets.
