Discussing results of the third Assessment of Achievement Programme (AAP) survey of attainment in English language of a representative sample of pupils throughout Scotland, this leaflet highlights areas where improvement in the performance could be made. The leaflet covers the four outcomes--listening, talking, reading, writing--in four columns. Reading down each column in the leaflet shows: (1) what skills were assessed; (2) key findings for the survey of pupils at primary 4, primary 7, and secondary 2 stages; (3) teaching issues which arise from the findings; and (4) some ideas to use in the classroom. The leaflet can be used for teachers' personal reading, staff meetings and group discussions, and staff development activities. The leaflet also presents other ideas for teaching and assessment, and lists five other resources teachers can use. (RS)
