by Pat Hoodless

This series provides subject related texts of different genres which can be used for teaching specific subjects as well as part ofthe Literacy Hour.

The books provide: *fully photocopiable texts covering a broad range of genres and subject content-original, previously published, and rewritten *texts that are Key-Stage specific *teaching notes and ideas *at-a-glance grids which demonstrate where texts fit into the Literacy Framework and subject Programmes of study.
