English is… 7-10 for the Australian Curriculum eBookPLUS


The English is… series uses a creative approach to learning to inspire students to embrace the English language in all its variations and develop key skills in reading, understanding and creating. Each unit is structured to inquire into the ‘big ideas’ or concepts that underpin English, leading students through a set of differentiated activities towards the knowledge, understanding and skills that will create literate citizens of the 21st century.

Designed exclusively for teachers, the eGuidePLUS combines the student eBookPLUS with full teacher support to reduce lesson planning time and help navigate the curriculum. The range of resources includes work programs for every chapter, curriculum grids, a complementary suite of digital resources and fully customisable Skillsheets, WorkSheets and chapter tests.
