We explore themes and content that matter to them, opening up minds and hearts. The space for students, InspireModel and InspireTweak comes with a more detailed analysis of students’ essays and language notes. We provide a boost to our exam-styled articles and worksheets, with deliberate scaffolding of key language skills over the issues for the year. We will not waver from our promise of exam-styled articles and worksheets, for every section of the GCE O Level, IGCSE, HKDSEE and International Baccalaureate, as always.
Each issue comprises model essays, situational writing pieces, listening, oral and comprehension texts. Each article/section is accompanied by notes, and the comprehension sections include comprehension questions, crafted carefully to closely follow the ‘O’ level format, while the standard of the questions caters well to the lower secondary students.
Similar to the iThink Write issue, the Inspire Write issue also includes student essays. These include both model student essays and tweak student essays, the latter being essays that require some improvement. You will find the editor’s comments on the essays, highlighting their merits and areas of improvement. The tweak essays are also modified slightly and the modified essay is printed next to the original one. The student essays motivate our student writers and create an interest in writing.
The judicious use of images and colour make the issue more interesting for the students and motivates them to pick it up and read. The Inspire Write Issue has received lots of positive feedback from the lower secondary school students and teachers.
Used by teachers as classroom material and exam setting material, and by students as enrichment to supplement school curriculum.
