About this title

Synopsis:

The Great Big Book of Crosswords is a photocopyable collection of crosswords games which give English language learners and native speakers in literacy programs the opportunity to play with the language, and in doing so to learn about the language and discover the enjoyment of language play. A crossword puzzle is also a challenge to solve a problem - to figure things out. Each puzzle is a learning experience. The solver confronts a challenge, uses what they know to discover the unknowns, overcomes frustrations, and experiences the pleasure of success. The puzzles in this book are best used by intermediate and advanced level students. They are arranged in five categories. The first four focus on linguistic form - letters, sounds, and words -- excellent practice for spelling and literacy development. The last section of topics focuses on semantic fields - time, food, work, sports,etc. This section can be used to review and even discover new vocabulary. The puzzles are graded as moderate (M) and difficult (D). When working through one of the categories, it is best to start with the moderate puzzles and proceed to the difficult. Although crosswords are typically done alone, they can also be used very effectively by pairs of students working together, using the language to share what they know and solve the problem. And yet another good use of the puzzles is in a tutorial situation where the tutor and the student work together. The answers to the puzzles are in the back of the book.
