B and D Publishing’s Working With Words consists of a series of individual English lessons. There are four packs in the series. Each pack contains 40 lessons. The work in each pack has been varied to provide lesson content for a wide range of abilities.
Heads of Department have found the series extremely useful for providing last minute lesson material for non-specialist teachers covering for absent staff. Similarly the variety of differentiated lessons provided can meet the short-term needs of supply teachers.
Some of the resources provide useful revision work - particularly for the perennial problems with words such as ‘their’ and ‘there’ and ‘was’ and ‘were’. A range of material in lighter vein is also included - crosswords, word-games, word-searches etc. Many teachers have found this material useful at the end of a project, as individual homework assignments, or as something different at the end of term.
