Synopsis

PASSPORT TO DISTINCTION focuses on preparing Secondary one students for the transition in assessment format for English from primary to secondary school.

The first two units give the students an overview and introduction to the common text types that they can expect to learn in the secondary English curriculum and the various types of comprehension questions that are tested.

Features and Structure of Text types
Each unit examines one text type in detail so that students can achieve a thorough understanding of the common grammatical features and structure of the different genres.

Planning and Writing Tips and Practice
Writing Tips and How to Write sections teach students the various writing techniques and styles that are essential for writing effective compositions. In addition, it boasts a step-by step guide to planning and writing compositions based on the different genres tested in the secondary English curriculum.

Comprehension Practice
Through the in-depth analysis of sample texts, students learn to answer comprehension questions more effectively by identifying the features of the text types and mastering the ability of selecting correct information. A summary section is also included so that students obtain ample practice in this important segment of the comprehension component.

Answers for both the sample texts and comprehension sections are included to aid students in independent learning. Detailed answers for summary are provided to teach students how to pick out and rephrase relevant points for summary writing.

Additional Reinforcement
The focus on teaching text types reinforces skills that are needed to score well in both composition and comprehension components. A thorough understanding of text type ensures students answer comprehension questions competently. Together with sample questions and a review section, students can apply this knowledge to writing excellent compositions as well.
