This Learning Workbook covers the essential skills, knowledge and practice needed for successful writing, and it's focus is on the requirements of the NCEA Writing Achievement Standards at Levels 1, 2 and 3 English.

  • Level 1: AS 90053 (English 1.5), Produce formal writing
  • Level 2: AS 91101 (English 2.4), Produce a selection of crafted and controlled writing
  • Level 3: AS 91475 (English 3.4), Produce a selection of fluent and coherent writing which develops, sustains and structures ideas.


  • All chapters are based on sound and current literacy practice and support students as they build skills from 'the basics' to extension work.
  • Tasks are scaffolded and modelled, and all the tasks in the book can be used to teach students at any NCEA level.
  • There is a firm focus on practice and on skill development; that is, on 'doing' writing tasks.
  • Example texts have been chosen for their quality, range and interest.
  • Annotated exemplars are used to illustrate theoretical components.
  • A section that focuses on writing exam essays is included in Chapter 6.
  • The final chapter deals with mastering writing conventions and provides guidance on polishing written work for accuracy and coherence.
  • Comprehensive answers provide students with guided help.
  • The index of important terms used in the text is a helpful reference tool.

Senior Writing Learning Workbook can be used in the classroom as well as for home study and revision. It complements ESA's Close Reading Learning Workbook, by the same authors.
