Essential English Skills Year 9 A Multi-level Approach by Alison Rucco

Essential English Skills Year 9 offers systematic teaching of three core areas of literacy: * Language skills - 10 units focusing on spelling, grammar and vocabulary * Reading skills - 10 units focusing on essential elements of different text types and how to read them * Writing skills - 10 units focusing on how to prepare different written pieces Each unit of work employs a consistent methodology designed to ensure optimum benefit to all students. The components of this methodology are: * A teaching page that explains the basic concept * An entry-level exercise page that reinforces the basic concept * A mid-level exercise page for most students * A high-level exercise page for the most able students Each exercise in the language skills and reading skills sections concludes with a writing challenge, inviting students to apply the concept they have mastered in their own way.
