Author: Stracey, Mark
The Second Edition of the Pearson English 8 Activity Book offers updated texts, activities, design and coverage of the Australian Curriculum: English. It caters for students of all abilities, including students with English as an Additional Language.
The Pearson English Activity Books are designed to develop and consolidate students’ knowledge and understanding of the English language and grammar. They integrate cumulative learning in the Language strand of the curriculum, as well as in the Literature and Literacy strands.
Using the Activity Books, students develop higher order language and literacy skills. They are supported with a solid language foundation, clear explanations and scaffolded learning. Students are exposed to rich and varied literature sources and text types, including contemporary and classic texts, Australian Aboriginal storytelling and news articles.
Each level of the Activity Books includes core units which offer clear Language explanations followed by scaffolded activities to use the language in context and build on grammar, vocabulary, spelling, reading and writing skills. At the back of the book, four revision units support students in preparing for summative assessment. Teachers will also find extension activities, tests, pedagogical support, Australian Curriculum correlation charts and more online for free.
About the Series:
We started with a question: what makes a good English lesson? Pearson English has been built from the ground up to answer that question, using the people who would know best. We sourced teachers as authors, ran focus groups with teachers from government, independent and Catholic schools and tested all material in classrooms.
The result is the most comprehensive English series, written, reviewed and tested by English teachers. All texts have been independently audited by practising teachers in over 90 hours of revisions and improvements, ensuring that the final content is uniformly excellent and matches the content and assessment requirements of the Australian Curriculum. And our thorough trials mean that you can be sure the texts, tasks and activities are classroom ready.
There is an amazing range of texts covering traditional and non-traditional options, including fiction and non-fiction, newspapers, letters, graphic novels, animations, manga, poetry, short stories and plays which also include unique Indigenous and Asia-Pacific literature.
