Text Level: Year 8 Comprehension Activities for Literacy Lessions by Ray Barker, Christine Moorcroft


Text Level: Year 8 Comprehension Activities for Literacy Lessions by Ray Barker, Christine Moorcroft

A series of three photocopiable literacy activity books for secondary schools and home study. Each book covers key objectives of the Text Level strand of the National Literacy Strategy framework for one year at Key Stage 3. All the material is photocopiable, so minimal teacher preparation is required. Developing Literacy has been hugely successful at primary level - and this secondary series was requested by Key Stage 3 teachers who have been using the NLS Framework since September 2001. The books are also compatible with the 5-14 Guidelines for Scotland and the Curriculum for Northern Ireland.
