This workbook was designed based on the guidelines outlined in the amended CXC CSEC English syllabus effective for the May - June 2018 examinations. It was developed in response to requests of teachers and students to have resources, validated by CXC, to assist them in completing the SBA. The activities in this Workbook will allow the teachers to more efficiently and effectively integrate the SBA in every day classroom activities. At the end of each group meeting, there is a Group Meeting Participation Form for students to complete. This form allows the teacher to monitor what happens outside the classroom as well. It also allows the students to have evidence to support their declarations in discussing their individual participation and group participation.The Workbook also incorporates activities which will help students to successfully complete the required tasks. The activities scaffold the thinking that will be required to complete the final tasks. The step by step approach makes the overall process easier. Finally, the Workbook contains sample SBAs. One is used as a working example to show how each task is supposed to be completed. The working sample also includes guidelines for completion. The other sample at the end of the Workbook was included to give students a clearer idea of how their final portfolio should be compiled. It was also included to show how students can work within the same theme/issue/topic/event and write the same written report but have different individual pieces. The SBA component provides a unique opportunity for students to improve their competence and achievement in English. It is my hope that School Based Assessment in English: A guide and workbook for students will make that opportunity more a reality.

In 1988, the Caribbean Examinations Council introduced an award for the Best Short Story written by a candidate during the stringent Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate(r) (CSEC(r)) English A (Language) examination. Under pressure for time in a high-stakes environment, the young writers produced gripping narratives that not only spoke to quality of imagination but also the command of language that the Council sought to cultivate in their language syllabus. Addressing provocative themes such as death, murder, and illness, this Commemorative Compilation of the winning short stories for the participating years from 2002 to 2013 marks the Council's 40th anniversary. With works from Angelina Autar, Shivanee Ramlochan, Lianna Baboolal, Mario J. Guevara, Grace-Ann Olivia Collins, Denise Westfield, Shantal Venessa Pellington, Zoie Hamilton, Nathan Benjamin Indarsingh, Ilona Loustric, and Nathaniel Adiah, this compelling collection includes the best short story from each year-as well as a retrospective of the writer's examination experience and an update on their lives today. Filled with rich imagery and diverse writing styles, these compelling dramatic stories will appeal not only to those seeking quality works by young Caribbean candidates, but also teachers and learners preparing for future CSEC English A examinations.

How do you create your own definition of success—and reach your unique potential? Building a fulfilling life and career can be a daunting challenge. It takes courage and hard work. Too often, we charge down a path leading to “success” as defined by those around us—and ultimately, are left feeling dissatisfied. Each of us is unique and brings distinctive skills and qualities to any situation. So why is it that most of us fail to spend sufficient time learning to understand ourselves and creating our own definition of success? The truth is, it can seem so natural and so much easier to just do what everyone else is doing—for now—leaving it for later to develop our best selves and figure out our own unique path. Is there a road map that will enable you to defy conventional wisdom, resist peer pressure, and carve out a path that fits your unique skills and passions? Harvard Business School’s Robert Steven Kaplan, leadership expert and author of the highly successful book What to Ask the Person in the Mirror, regularly advises executives and students on how to tackle these questions. In this indispensable new book, Kaplan shares a specific and actionable approach to defining your own success and reaching your potential. Drawing on his years of experience, Kaplan proposes an integrated plan for identifying and achieving your goals. He outlines specific steps and exercises to help you understand yourself more deeply, take control of your career, and build your capabilities in a way that fits your passions and aspirations. Are you doing what you’re really meant to do? If you’re ready to face this question, this book can help you change your life.
