Skills in English Reading Level 1 Teacher's Book The Garnet Education Skills in English series was highly commended in the Duke of Edinburgh English Speaking Union English Language Book Award in 2004. This course is part of the Skills in English series from Garnet Education. It is designed to help students to cope with simple reading research tasks in English. At Level 1, students learn how to: * predict content; * deal with new words; * follow instructions; * recognise dates and periods; * locate information within a text; * identify the topic sentences; * skim the topic sentences for the main points; * understand chronological markers; * understand simple discourse markers; * understand pronoun reference; * understand simple lexical cohesion; * transfer information from a text to a chart; * read actively. In addition, students acquire key vocabulary in the following thematic areas: * Education * Daily Life * Work and Business * Science and Nature * The Physical World * Culture and Civilization * They Made Our World * Art and Literature * Sports and Leisure * Nutrition and Health.
Key features of this Teacher's Book are: * a facsimile of the related Course Book page, for ease of reference; * an introduction to the approach taken in the course; * lesson-by-lesson notes; * a full answer key, including model answers where appropriate; * language and culture notes, where these will assist the teacher in understanding learning difficulties or confusions of the target students; * methodology notes, where the value of an exercise, or the way to conduct it, may not be self-evident. As well as preparing students for entry into English-medium study, the Skills in English Course is ideal for students who wish to improve their scores in skills-based examinations for university entry requirements, such as the International English Language Testing System (IELTS). Rather than focusing on exam preparation, Skills in English teaches the necessary skills as part of a systematic programme of language development. Skills in English courses are also available in Listening, Speaking and Writing. See the Skills in English website at skillsinenglish.com for additional materials and help.
