Aiming High 2: Straight A's

This book explores the key themes of raising achievement and the various strategies in both teaching and learning which will lead to students achieving their potential. Experienced A-level teachers reflect on issues including: the link between cultural awareness and developing linguistic skills; teaching study skills and learning strategies as an integral part of all aspects of teaching and learning a modern foreign language. The book is divided into six chapters, including the following: "Study Skills for A-Level Language Learners" (Tony Lonsdale); "Building Up Oral Skills" (Anneli McLachlan); "Developing Advanced Reading Skills" (Ann Barnes); "Discovering Literature through the Target Language" (Sheila Barbour); "Teaching History and Culture through the Modern Foreign Language" (Hilary Barker); and "Why Do They Do It?" (Keith Marshall). (KFT)
