Outstanding literacy resources

How to select resources that make a difference

Creative writing, phonics, applied grammar, creative listening and speaking, which are the key features to decide from one resource to another? Literacy and reading comprehension must not be taught equally for Primary or Secondary students. Which elements  must be taken into account for each stage? How  can we teach language and literature in a transversal and integrated way within the rest of subjects?
