The essential student guide to understanding and writing non-fiction texts

This revised edition of Reading & Writing Non-Fiction – The Student Toolkit teaches all the key reading and writing skills required to enable your students to succeed at GCSE, from analysing word choices and font selections to planning and proofreading their own work.

Through a series of structured activities based on a range of extracts, this 24-page magazine teaches students to understand how texts are written and presented to target audiences and how to evaluate their effectiveness.

It also provides invaluable guidance for students on how to organise ideas and information and write clearly and effectively for a specific genre, audience and purpose.

A 46-page set of Teacher Notes providing responses, where appropriate, to activities in the magazine, a range of Starter and Extension activities and a series of photocopiable Activity Sheets is also available in PDF format (priced £30.00 + VAT). Place a single order for five or more Student Sets (i.e. 25 or more copies) and we will email you the Teacher Notes absolutely FREE.
