How Do You Mean? provides extra challenge and supports teachers delivering specific areas of the National Literacy Strategy.

This is achieved by:

  • helping students understand the sound and spelling system and use this to read and spell accurately ", which they do through exploring the morphological basis of English words, and by looking at the ways in which words are built up of other elements.
  • encouraging them to have an interest in words and their meanings and a growing vocabulary through the introduction of obscure vocabulary in the interactives and dictionary exercises. Students are invited to think speculatively about the meaning words gain from their context, and to deepen the sophistication of their thinking about how language works.
