Written by highly experienced teachers, writers and OFSTED inspectors, this course aims to continue good practice in schools, whilst addressing the important issues of concern to modern language teachers: how to encourage student autonomy and use of the target language; how significantly to reduce high photocopying costs; how to deliver accurate and effective assessment; and how to ensure progression. The series encourages students to use the target language communicatively and active use of the language is fully developed and continually reinforced. It ensures progression throughout Key Stage 3 and provides an active approach to grammar to help students analyze the language they are learning. Students are offered regular opportunities to be creative, to read for pleasure and to develop dictionary skills. In-built revision and self-assessment inform learning and make students aware of their progress. Additionally, an activity book provides personalized ownership of work and there is a certificate of achievement for each student, designed to motivate learning. The series reflects the reduced content of the post-Dearing National Curriculum and is suitable for S1-2 in Scotland. The activity books: provide meaningful homework or class activities in all four Attainment Targets; provide a format to personalize ownership of work for each student; allow students to work at their own pace and to realize their potential; contain a variety of consolidation and extension tasks which provide a source for reference and revision; and have an accompanying audio cassette.
