Containing a wealth of interesting strategies for tackling many of the common issues, this publication is an indispensable toolkit for the English department and beyond. Over 350 pages cover a wide range of issues including plenty of ideas for literacy across the curriculum. Basics such as handwriting and spelling, getting more enjoyment from reading and careful listening are addressed in ways that really get pupils thinking about why these skills are important. Other activities provide accessible ways into more challenging areas, such as structuring a piece of writing, reading for inference and adapting spoken language to different audiences.
‘First-rate print based resource. Providing pupils with strategies so they can be more independent. Signposting and structure of the content is well thought through and supports the new National Curriculum. Up to date materials for reading, writing, speaking and listening.’

‘EMC resources are excellent... student focused rather than simply exam focused but still grounded in the reality and pressures of the day to day job.’
