Cambridge English Grammar and Writing Skills Learner’s Book 7
Author/s: Mike Gould, Eoin Higgins
Introduce your learners to creative writing and writing for a purpose.
They’ll write an urban myth and a report of a school play, helping build their extended writing skills as they progress through the units.
Each unit focuses on a different text type such as dialogue, reports or instructions.
Model texts in each chapter show learners good examples of each writing type and specific activities help them practise grammar typical of the genre.
Learners work individually and collaboratively, developing skills such as creative thinking, planning, drafting, peer evaluation and editing.
Help your learners understand different writing types with the model texts at the start of each unit
Improve comprehension and text analysis skills with the ‘Let’s Talk’ section in each unit, which encourages learners to discuss the model text
The ‘Writer’s Toolbox’ provides a useful checklist of grammar and writing skills to help learners write different text types.
Helpful tools, like planning scaffolds, help learners understand how to plan extended writing tasks.
