This is the fourth book in a new series from an exciting new author. Eve Miller is an ex- perienced classroom teacher and now a keen author.  This book is a response to a direct request from teachers for suitable learning materials for this cohort of students.

It comes with free audio files, interactive software and powerpoint displays ( and open office equivalents) to help teachers teach and children to learn.

This book is designed to help children and young people to become skilled in interpreting the different types of messages they see everyday and to distinguish between formal and informal communication. This is a vital life skill for children and young people, to engage in communication from small talk to formal conversation. The ability to communicate effectively and efficiently is a life skill that many students in this cohort find difficult and will often resort to the well heard phrase ‘ you know what I mean?’ Employers often complain about the poor level of communication amongst trainees, that is why this book is an important contribution to the education of this cohort of students.

This is a value laden book that will support teachers in their work and help students to learn. This is the third in a series of 4 books written for Lawler Education by the same author.  The series is:  Writing in Everyday Life 1 Making inferences, Writing in Everyday Life 2 Travelling, Writing in Everyday Life 3 Asking questions,  Writing in Everyday Life 4

Messages.  As well as this we are making a master version available to enable teachers who want all four books, to save some money.

The book comes with interactive software to help children learn the correct words and to get them actively engaged with their own learning and engaging in what theorists call ‘scaffolding their own learning’.  The purchaser buys rights to copy the sheets and use them and the software in their school.
