Nelson English International teaches the skills and craft of quality writing, catering for the 6-12 year age range, and provides a six year programme of study. It is easily managed in the classroom, with three components at each level: a student textbook; a student workbook; and a teacher resource book. The student textbook gives a thorough coverage of the key skills of grammar, spelling, punctuation, comprehension and vocabulary building. The units are designed to build pupils' knowledge of these language skills and apply them in their written tasks, with the aim of writing effectively for a wide range of purposes. Planning, drafting, revising and editing copy are all covered in developing these writing skills. Students are also taught to understand the characteristics of different styles and forms of writing.
The Copymaster Resource Books provide photocopiable worksheets that are designed for differentiation, extension or homework. An integral part of the scheme, they comprise separate word, sentence and level activities, directly linked to the units in the two parallel Pupil Books.
