Text Generation: Students' Book 1 Student Book by Frances Gregory, Jacquie Hills

Text Generation Book 1 is aimed at students in their first year of secondary school, to help raise standards in writing, which are statistically lower than reading standards and targeted as a priority area in many schools. It covers all stages of the writing process and the objectives in the Framework for Teaching English. Chapters include creating characters, writing short stories, presenting information, writing evaluations, arguing your case, sensations in words, writing reviews, process writing, the language of marketing, and writing advice. Short and longer writing tasks throughout help prepare students for National Tests ('SATs'). Chapters contain model texts, stepped activities, checklists, and plenty of variety, and are designed in a colourful, accessible style. Use as a scheme of work for writing, or dip into units for inspiring texts and ideas. A unique feature - each chapter begins with a 'real writer' describing how they use the teaching points in the chapter in their own job - DVD producers, advertising copywriters, PC game reviewers, top novelists, all aim to motivate students to write for real audiences and purposes. Accompanied by an e-Resource Bank giving hundreds of customizable resource sheets, additional interactive annotated texts, and teaching notes.


Text Generation is well structured, interesting, and varied. It will slot easily into any scheme of work and will engage children at all levels. I particularly like the real writers sections and the clear exposition of framework objectives in student-friendly language. A great investment for any English Department. John Mannon, English teacher, consultant and writer

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

Lorraine Woods

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Katie Lonsdale

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

It’s really exciting to read and review new books, thrilling to see my reviews online and I love finding the final published copies on sale.
