The second edition of the National English Skills 7–10 full-colour workbook series has been fully revised to reflect the content descriptions of the Australian Curriculum, Version 9.0. The series covers the Language, Literature and Literacy strands, addresses cross-curriculum priorities, and supports state-based curriculum requirements.
The focus of National English Skills is on developing the reading, writing, speaking, listening and thinking skills that are at the heart of the Australian Curriculum. It seeks through a diversity of high-interest texts to engage the interest of students and to enrich their English experience.
In addition to literary texts, it draws on multimodal texts from newspapers, films, popular culture, the internet and more. Texts have been chosen to represent a wide variety of cultural perspectives, including First Nations and Asian.
