Improving Literacy with Short Stories for Years 7 and 8
Seven original short stories and activities written specifically to improve literacy skills for year 7 and 8 students. All stories have been carefully crafted to engage these year groups and to demonstrate genre, narrative and literary techniques.
The ready-to-use worksheets use the stories as springboards to focus on developing reading and writing skills but also incorporate dramatic skills and cross-curricular links to stretch your students further.
Finding good examples that don't break the rules we try to teach is always a challenge and having pre-written activities and ideas is very useful for the busy teacher. P Town, English Teacher & Independent Reviewer
