Student Book 1 develops the key reading and writing skills that students will be assessed on in Component 1 and Component 2 of the WJEC GCSE English Language qualification. Structured around the Assessment Objectives, the book engages students through a thematic approach with inspiring texts that helps prepare students for the thematic connections they will face in the examinations. Through a range of texts, activities, stretch and support features as well as tips
and key terms, this book helps students of all abilities develop their reading and writing skills. Spelling, punctuation and grammar activities and guidance are provided in context to help improve students' technical accuracy. In addition to the regular peer and self-assessment activities, teachers can
monitor progress through the substantive end-of-chapter assessments and the sample exam papers.
