I am using this resource as remediation for a dyslexic Year 9 student who understands the theory of grammar but whose creative writing is not yet revealing what he knows. Self-esteem is beginning to falter and so I am adapting this resource to build his confidence and with repeated chunks of practice, I am aiming for greater automaticity. The pages in this resource are interesting, varied and joyful making the resource easy to work with.

Totally agree with the previous comment by Julie Burr. English skills are crucial to each and every pupil in order for them to communicate effectively and write clearly and with interest. So these resources are very helpful to me and more so to my pupils. Thank you.

While I am not currently teaching an English class, I am a trained and experienced English teacher, and the Fix It program allows me to create specific remediation for students who lack the basic writing skills to complete extended writing tasks in my Science-based classes. I believe it is every teacher's duty to improve the English skills of their students, and this program is easily integrated into my classes. I have also recommended its use to my colleagues in English.
