This resource is being used for an end of year, into Summer school programme of study for students who are missing key skills in reading, writing and speaking and listening. The diversity of the texts, the starting points for differentiation and the possible activities mean that all Year 8 teachers in the department can offer a fairly uniform approach. In particular, the pack was chosen because boys responded well to the themes and focus of the texts, while the girls like that they aren't only texts about 'hairy men in the wilderness'. A good all-rounder.
