Endorsed by OCR, Literacy in Context is a flexible course tailored to the new GCSE English specifications for 2002. The Student's Study Guide offers pupils extra practice at the various types of question they will encounter in the OCR GCSE English exam. Written by a former examiner, the guide offers an insight into what makes a good answer. It offers an easy-to-follow, step-by-step approach which will help students tackle the range of exam questions that make up the OCR English paper. Practice is given both on tasks which test students' response to reading and tasks which require students to produce pieces of continuous writing for different purposes and audiences. Although there is a focus on exam preparation and practice, the carefully structured approach to writing and reading skills mean that this book could also be used for homework or extra class practice.
