Carlong Integrated Assessment Papers: Book 3 - Language Arts combines revision and testing to create an exciting and innovative style of assessment text. This book replaces the popular Carlong Third Year Assessment Tests - English.


The book responds directly to the requirements of the new curriculum. The new text revises succinctly but clearly key language arts topics before it presents students with copious related practice exercises. Units are organized under a number of themes which are deemed relevant and important to the target group. Under these themes, the author deals with language arts concepts relevant to the grade. Threads of each overarching theme run throughout the unit to create a very rich, satisfying and integrated language arts experience.
