The Year 8 Teacher's Book covers the key concepts and processes of the revised programme of study, offering a full range of lesson plans to cover the breadth of the curriculum while at the same time allowing for a great deal of flexibility in the way in which teachers can deliver the suggested lessons or recombine the various source materials and assessment tasks to suit their own teaching style and the levels of their pupils. This book includes a CD-ROM of editable worksheets.
