New Literacy Kit Year 9 by Geoff Barton
New Literacy Kit is an integrated set of resources for teaching Literacy at Key Stage 3. The series is closely tied into the Framework for Teaching English and is now also ideal for supporting your school’s Assessment for Learning policy. With on-the-page starters, the Year 9 units cover all three writing strands, and together with the Assess Your Learning pages offer a comprehensive approach to literacy learning for 11-14 year-olds. Content includes: helpful, student-friendly descriptions of text types and learning objectives; texts closely mapped to all the Framework objectives; texts chosen to appeal equally to both boys and girls; comprehension work (understanding plus interpretation); language analysis activities including grammar; cross-curricular work; writing activities, including extended writing; and opportunities for speaking and listening. The Year 9 Students’ Book is supported by a Teacher’s Book, a Display Texts Pack, and OHT Pack, and two books of Lesson Starters – one covering Word and one Sentence level.
