Description - Active English 4 by John Barwick

Active English is a series of activity books for classes 1 to 6 that is firmly based on text types. What makes Active English unique is the special emphasis on critical and visual literacy. The chosen text excerpts are from a variety of mixed text types, both literary and non-literary. The structure and features of each text type are reinforced in each unit of work leading towards independent reading and writing. In each unit, emphasis is given to all language skills with exercises in contextual grammar and spelling. There are also activities to encourage teachers to initiate whole-class discussion. At the end of each unit, there are discretionary, sometimes challenging extension tasks based on applying the text type that is featured in each unit.
