A Study on the Cohesion of English Teaching Materials Between Primary and Junior High School

Fengshan BI, Nuo CHENG


English teaching materials, as the main teaching media, play an important role in teaching. Many scholars have attached great importance to teaching materials, but they took little heed to the cohesion of teaching materials between different stages of basic education. This study intended to investigate the cohesion of primary-secondary teaching materials by exploring the problems in terms of language knowledge and language skills in the selected English teaching materials for primary and secondary schools, which was finally succeeded by some practical suggestions for the English teachers and the students alike to effectively facilitate the cohesion problems in the primary-secondary stages.
