The weekly study guides cover a wide range of topics, from animal enterprises to agri-environmental challenges. Each week a brand new student worksheet will be available to complement each one of the study guides, which can be used by students in class or at home.
The worksheets will include various tasks from comprehension exercises, dictionary work, multiple choice questions and more. The worksheets have been designed to enhance learning of the new leaving certificate material and as alternatives to exam questions. The worksheets can be used as a tool to assess self-learning or alternatively, classroom assessment.
