Show synopsis This is the first book in a new series which will be written to closely match and follow the English syllabus in Scotland, the first text to do so. Spirals 1 is written for S1 which is the first year of secondary school in Scotland. The 'Spiral' name is chosen because the authors have used two different yet connected approaches to teaching. They want the book to remain as flexible as possible, with teachers able to 'navigate' their own route throughout. This means that the chapters aren't necessarily in the order that they will be taught. The skills that are to be taught are reading, writing, talking and listening. Most tasks have been designed to include more than one of these skills rather than setting them as linear, separate items. Spirals 1 will be an ideal companion for students following this course in Scotland. Spirals 2 will follow on for students in S2, and there will be accompanying teachers' materials, currently planned to be supplied on CD.
