Synopsis

Checkpoint English by Alan Howe, Sue Hackman

The Checkpoint English series consists of three books and one CD. Together they form an incremental programme of work with clear goals aimed at raising standards in English. - Each book is divided into units that cover the key curriculum requirements of reading, writing, usage and speaking and listening. - The units have been arranged across the three years to establish, revisit and consolidate these skills. - The texts have been chosen for their quality and richness in classroom study. - Activities are designed to introduce pupils to the focus for the sequence of work and to engage their interest. - Within each unit, several pages are given to reinforcing new knowledge or skills in context. - Photocopiable pages contain actitivites where a more hands-on approach is suitable. - Usage sections focus attention on sentence structure, grammar, punctuation, spelling and vocabulary. - Progression is built into each unit of study and across the course as a whole. - Many of the units are free-standing, allowing the flexibility to link them with other units or with material the teacher has sourced from elsewhere. - The accompanying CD provides audio support where it is most helpful to pupils and this is clearly indicated within the text by the CD icon.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

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.
