Senior English Skills Builder Student book + obook assess
Publication Date: 9 August 2015
The third edition of Senior English Skills Builder has been updated to prepare pre-VCE students with the skills they require to achieve success in VCE English. Ideally used at Year 10, this workbook includes units aligned to the new 2016 Study Design and the Australian Curriculum. Students will develop the skills needed to write analytical, creative and comparative responses to texts. Moreover, they will hone their ability to analyse persuasive language and argument, develop and present argument, improve oral communication and prepare thoroughly for an English examination. Students who complete this program will be equipped with the writing skills required for success in VCE English with units covering punctuation, grammar, parts of speech and spelling strategies. The text provides opportunities for students to analyse high-scoring responses and to assess their own writing and also includes many suggestions for text pairings suitable for pre-VCE students. Kate Tehan joins original authors Amanda Ford and Elizabeth Haywood to deliver this valuable resource, which is further supplemented digitally with obook and assess.
