Just English Developing Reading & Writing Skills is the second of a two-level reading and writing series for elementary learners of English. This revised edition of Developing Reading & Writing Skills contains short reading passages with accompanying exercises for learners to practise basic reading skills - predicting, skimming, scanning and vocabulary building strategies. The carefully selected exercises help facilitate comprehension, vocabulary development, critical thinking and speaking skills. The development of writing skills features guidelines and pointers on how to construct texts of different genres - narrative, descriptive and expository.
Features of Just English Developing Reading & Writing Skills are:
- Odd numbered units that introduce a basic reading skill or vocabulary building strategy.
- Even numbered units that contain short reading passages followed by comprehension and
vocabulary exercises that allow learners to put the skills they have learnt into practice.
- The Writing Skills section that rounds off each even numbered unit introduces and instructs learners on narrative, descriptive and expository writing.
- The Critical Thinking section in the odd-numbered units provides extension activities to help develop learners' higher order thinking skills.
