About these books

Grammar for Literacy and Vocabulary for Literacy equip pupils with the building blocks for success in exams, coursework and adult life, and facilitate literacy development across the curriculum.

Both books guide pupils through simple explanations, strategies, progressive activities and revision tasks.

> Understand the essentials. Key concepts that pupils need to remember are introduced in 'explanation' boxes.

> Put theory into practice. 'Building', 'Strengthening' and 'Extending' tasks enable pupils to apply their knowledge and skills, through a mix of solo and group work.

> See the big picture. 'Crossover' boxes make links to prior and future learning, cementing pupils' knowledge and skills.

> Avoid common errors. 'Mistake' boxes contain examples and tips to ensure that pupils get it right in their own writing and speech.

> Check and consolidate. Revision tasks can be used flexibly for classwork, homework or assessment.
