40-lesson Working with Words Series One Scheme of Work

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 different lessons. The work in each pack has been varied to provide lesson content for a wide range of abilities. The material in the resource packs has been designed to help in a variety of situations.

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 just a little different at the end of term.
