Grammar in Action is a new workbook series designed for students in the first three years of secondary school. It will help them to learn, understand and put into practice the skills needed to provide a strong foundation for their language and writing development. Each book contains twentyunits. In each unit, each aspect of grammar is covered in two parts: In Focus - this double-page spread teaches students about grammar, punctuation and writing skills in the traditional way. A concise explanation is provided, followed with examples of usage and a series of graded exercises. In Context - this double-page spread explores a particular grammar point in the context of a piece of writing. This allows students to see how grammar functions in context and encourages them to reflect on how it helps to enhance and shape the writing. Finally, students use what they have learned byapplying it to their own writing. A range of creative suggestions and writing tasks is provided.
