Synopsis

Developing Reading & Writing Skills for the Year 8 Tests Student Book by John Dayus, Andrew Bennett, Elizabeth Clark

Developing Reading and Writing Skills for the Year 8 Tests helps students to improve their skills, set targets and approach assessment with confidence. Section A systematically covers all the Year 8 Framework objectives that are closely linked to the tests. It enables students to develop and practice their skills using a wide range of literature including stimulating fiction, non-fiction and media texts. Building on work covered at Key Stage 2, it uses stepped activities and integrates effective teaching and learning methodologies. End of unit assignments are provided for easy monitoring of students' progress throughout the year. Section B clearly and accessibly explains the structure and demands of the tests. Written by Andrew Bennett, test developer, it includes diagnostic tests to help identify areas for improvement and practice tests that match the format and style of the tests. It encourages students to build the skills they need to approach the tests with confidence and succeed. Developing Reading and Writing Skills for the Year 8 Tests is accompanied by a photocopiable Teacher's Resource Pack, offering support for the Student Book, reading and writing self-assessment and target setting sheets, mark schemes for the diagnostic and practice tests, and reading and writing booklets just like those used in the year 8 tests.
