Synopsis

Passwords to English: Students' Book 2 by Michaela Blackledge, Joanna Crewe, Jane Flintoft, Julia Waines

Passwords to English is an innovative English course for students aged 11-14. Many students without specific special needs under-attain in English, with problems caused by lack of motivation, lack of interest, or more general ability problems. Passwords to English provides bright, motivating materials focusing on the basics of the curriculum to help students catch up and achieve at an average or above level. Critical for many students is their preferred style of learning, and Passwords to English includes materials for visual, audio and kinaesthetic learners. It covers all text types required by the Framework for Teaching English, offering texts especially chosen to be of interest to even the most reluctant student, and targets those objectives identified by the government as critical indicators of success. It offers clearly structured lessons, building from short activities to extended tasks. Key literary and grammar terms are explained clearly in handy Password panels on the page, and an appealing and varied visual presentation of information and tasks - including many specially commissioned cartoons - will help with motivation. Students' Book 2 is aimed at students aged 12+, and is supported by a teacher's book and CD of electronic activities.

Reviews

I would like the chance to work with these materials they would supplement nicely what I have and I feel that these resources would engage the pupils and they would enjoy them. Alan J Simon Good, boy-friendly choice of texts K Babarinde Looks very promising for level 3/4 students and focused on KS3 test requirements / literacy framework

I like the explanation given and the structure of the text Moira-Jayne Watts I like the different activities. The lessons are very dynamic. Students are given the chance to participate fully in the lessons
