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.

  • Fresh new design, now in full colour and with more student writing room. Ideal preparation for skills needed to succeed in the literacy component of NAPLAN testing.
  • Units can be worked through sequentially, used in conjunction with other sections or selected individually to support a particular class or student; suitable for homework or classroom use.
  • All answers for exercises are provided in a tear-out section at the back of each book or online via the obook.
