Key Stage 3 English Teacher's Resource by Linda Hill, Zoe Livingstone, Saira Sawtell, Pat Woolfe


Key Stage 3 English Teacher's Resource by Linda Hill, Zoe Livingstone, Saira Sawtell, Pat Woolfe

'Interactive English' is a complete yet flexible package of resources for English departments to support the teaching of the revised Key Stage 3 curriculum to pupils of all abilities and by experienced and newly qualified teachers alike. The Year 7 Dynamic Learning Teacher's Resource provides a complete set of flexible lesson plans and materials for teachers, structured around the key processes, content and curriculum opportunities of the KS3 programme of study for Year 7. Each lesson contains: - links out to relevant key Framework objectives for pupils and teachers - resources in electronic formats to deliver key content and skills practice: interactive starter activities; source texts; PowerPoint language presentations; audio files; editable worksheets; editable writing frames; video clips; weblinks; images - 'live' thumbnails of corresponding Pupil's Book pages for each level - suggestions for differentiation opportunities within comprehensive teacher's notes - links out to Assessment Guidance and assessment profiling support - links to appropriate Strategy Pupil Progression Maps (for Reading and Writing) Includes both pre-loaded lesson routes and opportunities for flexibility via the DL Lesson Builder tool.


All of the resources provided for the 90 lessons within Interactive English 7 are valuable in their own right, making the resource a useful standalone addition to teaching. But the real benefit is to be found in the lesson builder section of the software. This allows the teacher to edit the lessons, or create new ones, using resources from within the software. You can tailor the resources for the particular group you are eaching and build up the lessons, with support from tried and tested files of your own. The capacity to adapt the lessons is a valuable and very easy process. There are also links from within the programme to the relevant pages of the accompanying course book, which can be viewed on screen. -- Independent 20090219 We have found the interactive resources brilliant both as a resource but even more as a stimulus to develop classroom practice; they are both challenging and innovative. -- Terry Falconer, Head of English, Aylesbury High School, Buckinghamshire 20091106
