The Australian Curriculum edition of the English Skills Builder series sees these best-selling skills resources fully revised to address the three English strands of Language, Literacy and Literature. Designed to complement any English program, this series will teach and reinforce the skills that students need at junior secondary level. Each workbook is divided into 50 units, and content explores different aspects of language use as well as different text types and genres. The English Skills Builder series are now accompanied by digital obooks for the first time. The obook is a cloud-based web-book available anywhere, anytime, on any device, navigated by topic or by ‘page view’. As well as containing the student text, the obook offers additional Enriching Literature units focusing on texts relevant to the cross-curriculum priorities, as well as popular classic and contemporary texts.
