OverviewThis new 2nd edition keeps its focus on the core skills that personal writing requires, and the idea that reading, writing and responding to text, whether written, visual or oral, demand for success in life as well as in school. The information and exercises offered here will help a Year 10 student to prepare for and to revise classroom work. A student will be able to use the material provided in an ad hoc way, dipping into the appropriate chapters to support their understanding of what is being taught at school. How to Achieve in Year 10 English will also be useful in the classroom as a support for the material all teachers cover in Year 10 English courses, as they help their students improve their use of the English language through reading, viewing, listening and responding to text in English, both fiction and non-fiction. All students need to read, understand and write in English with confidence to succeed in life as well as at school. How to Achieve in Year 10 English sets out to help New Zealand students cope with their study of English in a world that may seem to be changing rapidly but where the essentials for reading and writing remain the same.
