Abstract

Secure subject knowledge and understanding is the foundation of confident, creative and effective teaching. To help your students master this, the Eighth Edition of this established text now comes with a range of online resources available on the brand new companion website including: Interactive English subject knowledge audit: to assess your students subject knowledge in primary English. Save valuable teaching time at the start of the year by setting is as a pre-course audit and ensure students have an accurate picture of their ability before they begin. Grading your students' overall performance, results can be shared with you immediately and include further reading suggestions so students can revisit areas where they require improvement. Reflective self-assessment questions: more than 70 "check your learning" questions help consolidate students’ understanding of each chapter topic and monitor their learning as they work through the book. Irregular verbs: a handy reference of all the irregular verbs so trainees can teach English confidently. Glossary: building students' knowledge, the full online glossary of terms for English helps them know their "digraph" from your "soliloquy." This Eighth Edition, covering the whole primary curriculum, also includes new chapters on handwriting and the nature of learning. Updated interactive activities throughout the book engage students in their learning and enable discussion. Using this book in conjunction with the free online resources really makes this the complete package for developing English subject knowledge.
