This coursebook follows an activity-based methodology for classroom use. It is organized into three parts: text types, global issues, and assessment. The first section defines and analyses a range of literary and non-literary text types. The global issues section integrates all three areas of exploration from the revised syllabus (readers, writers, and texts; time and space; intertextuality), into meaningful units. This section promotes classroom interaction and results in work that can feed into formative assessment and the learner portfolio. The coursebook includes curated video links and samples of Paper 1, Paper 2, the individual oral, and the higher-level essay. Higher-level extension activities are included in each unit. The new key concepts and guiding questions are integrated throughout. Answers are in the teacher’s resource.
