Fully revised for first examination in 2021 with an emphasis on 21st century skills. This activity-based coursebook for classroom use is clearly organised 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, into meaningful units. 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, with key concepts and guiding questions integrated throughout. Answers are in the teacher's resource.
