Written for lower secondary students, this guide provides students with a smooth transition from the situational/functional writing task at PSLE to the more demanding task of situational writing at the secondary level. It helps students to do a comprehensive revision of Section B in Paper 1 of the secondary English Language examination. It ultimately prepares students for the demands of Situational Writing at the GCE O-Level examination.
- Explanation: A definition of the component or item that helps students to understand what skills are needed to earn marks.
- Teaching Examples: An example of each type of situational writing task to show students exactly what the task looks like. Students will become familiar with it and thus are able to prepare adequately to handle the task demands.
- Templates, Tips And Tasks: Suggested answers are provided for the short exercises and tasks. By reading the suggested response for each task and comparing it with the student’s own answer, he or she can do self-assessment. This enables students to understand more fully what is expected for each situational writing task and learn from their mistakes. The extra practice task challenges students to apply in a new situation what they have learnt in a unit.
- Practice Tasks: The parallel practice task is a version similar to the teaching example task so that students can immediately apply what they have learnt from the teaching example.
The guide is suitable for class revision and self-revision at home.
