Essential English Skills for the Australian Curriculum has been revised to cover the language and literacy strands of the Australian Curriculum: English with a focus on introducing key language and literacy skills in Years 7&8 and consolidating and developing those skills in Years 9&10. Units in each workbook are organised by skill and cover grammar, punctuation, spelling, vocabulary, reading, comprehension, writing and editing.

  • Carefully and clearly graded worksheets cater to different learning abilities in every topic, providing a multilevel approach to these key language and literacy skills and giving every student an achievable starting point and the opportunity to extend their skills.
  • Fully integrated ICT exercises encourage students to develop skills in reading digital texts and to explore the impact of digital technologies on their own language and literacy development.
  • Writing, Interacting and Technology Challenges invite students to expand language skills beyond reading and writing, and encourage meaningful interactions with others through small group work and oral presentations.
  • Each unit is introduced with teaching pages that explain key concepts with appropriate detail, visual learning techniques and examples allowing students to work independently in class or at home.
  • A phonics approach to spelling helps students develop a secure grasp of the essential sound and spelling patterns.
  • A cognitive model for comprehension allows students to learn about certain language and text features as they are reading.
  • A strong focus on vocabulary development and grammar basics ensure students can apply basic concepts to their own writing across disciplines as well as in the English classroom.
  • Proofreading and editing tools encourage students to review their own work and equip them with the skills they need to develop their writing and language use.
  • The Australian Curriculum strands are explicitly identified allowing easy indication of the material that fits into the strands.
