New Literacy Kit: Year 8: Students' Book by Geoff Barton

New Literacy Kit is an integrated set of resources for teaching Literacy at Key Stage 3. The series is closely tied into the Framework for Teaching English and is now also ideal for supporting your school's Assessment for Learning policy. With on-the-page starters, the Year 8 units cover all three writing strands, and together with the Assess Your Learning pages offer a comprehensive approach to literacy learning for 11-14 year-olds. Content includes: helpful, student-friendly descriptions of text types and learning objectives; texts closely mapped to all the Framework objectives; texts chosen to appeal equally to both boys and girls; comprehension work (understanding plus interpretation); language analysis activities including grammar; cross-curricular work; writing activities, including extended writing; and opportunities for speaking and listening. The Year 8 Students' Book is supported by a Teacher's Book, a Display Texts Pack, and OHT Pack, and two books of Lesson Starters - one covering Word and one Sentence level.

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

It’s so easy to find the right book for your child. Such an easy-to-use, yet in-depth website. 100% reliable.

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.

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