KEYS: Updated for Biennio 2

This is the Teacher’s addition which gives you the keys so you can self-check any work or corrections you have missed.
These are the keys to the Biennio 2 Proficiency Masterclass book.
Please work through the above papers and self check both the multiple choice questions and word formation exercises. I will accept your open questions by next Monday (26.11.2018).
Homework – A composition (approximately 400 words in one hour 30 minutes – either typed or handwritten). A full or partial composition for Monday (22nd) as a trial run and then a full composition due after our week off.
Note – other files to follow shortly.
Here is the key to the homework from last week. Have a look to see the highlighted sections and see where you made mistakes.
See the above files for writing strategy and composition titles. Homework – one composition title handwritten in approx. 300 words in an academic style.
All of the above are to help you with your composition writing. Please read them through before starting the task.
A very good book that will help you throughout the next two years with Academic writing.

Biennio 2 – look for material on bullying, homeschooling, soap operas tackling topical issues etc.
