Synopsis

Text Generation Students' Book by Frances Gregory, Jacquie Hills

Text Generation Book 2 is aimed at students in their second 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 Changing views, Figurative language, Finding the tone, Telling tales, Poetic form, Information, Description, Analysis, Persuasive rhetoric, Persuasive logic, Advice, and Reviews. 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 highly colourful, accessible style. Use as a scheme of work for writing, or dip in to 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 - campaigners, poets, PC game reviewers, top novelists, all aim to motivate students to write for real audiences and purposes. Accompanied by an e-Resource Bank giving 100s of customisable resource sheets additional interactive annotated texts, and teaching notes.
