What are they about?

Qwiller English work ebooks and workbooks provide the activities for students to learn about and develop their skills in creative writing in a particular genre or other text types, for example humour writing, essay writing, script writing, poetry or song lyric writing.

The work ebooks can be either printed or used on your computer or electronic device, depending on the file chosen. PDF files can be printed and photocopied and Mobi and ePub files can be downloaded onto e-readers and computers.

The English work ebooks/workbooks have been designed to be used in conjunction with their corresponding units of work, but they can be used separately. Click here for more information about the content and cost of our units of work. We recommend that the work ebooks are used with the unit of work as using both resources develops consistency.
Although our English work ebooks/workbooks are inspired by the Australian English Curriculum and NSW English K-10 Syllabus for the Australian Curriculum, they can be used by English teachers and students referring to different English curriculums. They have been designed to be used by students in the classroom with the guidance of teachers.

These English work ebooks/workbooks are for individual teacher use only. The same copyright laws apply as for printed books. Only 10% of content is able to be photocopied. If you wish for all your students to use these work ebooks, please direct them to purchase individual copies or purchase a site license through an annual unit of work subscription.

Who are they for?

The English work ebooks/workbooks are for teachers and students.

The proposed student year and age group are indicated in the information about each work ebook. This is a guide only. We understand that every student has levels of ability that are not always reflected in their year level.

Although each work ebook/workbook has been created with the Australian English Curriculum in mind, the knowledge and skills developed through the work ebook are universal and would easily integrate with other English curriculums worldwide.   

English teachers or schools may recommend students purchase one or more of the creative writing and/or English work ebooks/workbook for use in class.

How have they been developed?

At Qwiller we consistently research innovative teaching strategies appropriate for teaching secondary students English and creative writing.

The lesson content in each work ebook is determined by the knowledge and writing skills students require to competently complete an assessment task.

Our aim at Qwiller is to minimize the amount of time it takes teachers to be prepared for teaching English in the classroom. Of course, we all have our favourite lessons and these can be used with the English work ebooks/workbooks, thereby enhancing your teaching practice.

Our English work ebooks/workbooks are written by English teachers for English teachers and students. We have an enormous amount of experience teaching students as well as writing non-fiction for the education market and writing stories.  We are realistic about what it’s like in the classroom and therefore aim to develop activities that are meaningful to all student learning styles and needs. This is of course an ongoing process as new pedagogical practices and resources become available.
