Six Levels of Student Course Book

  • Designed to have a "pick up and go" approach.

  • Even teachers with limited experience can teach these lessons with minimal preparation.

  • Course book lessons follow the video plot lines for continuity and connection.

  • Each level will be based on a Part, as detailed in the existing video materials.

  • Each lesson begins with a short video excerpt and then reinforces the video’s key points.

  • Program highlights a classic CEFR scope and sequence (Can do statements into exponents at each level.)

  • To facilitate adaptation into multiple settings and languages, the program focuses on one point in each lesson with the instruction “Look” as opposed to overt, grammar rules.

  • Includes appropriate natural pattern formation and observation expectations by target- age learners

  • Program avoids meta-language (noun, verb, present simple or subject, object).

One Teacher’s Guide Per Level

  • Accessible Teacher’s Guide follows a clear and cohesive Presentation, Practise, Production approach.

  • Each lesson begins with a clear explanation of the methodology to best conduct each activity.

  • Each lesson provides extra activities, particularly two or three minutes of video material in each lesson.

  • While the majority of the teachers will share the language of the children, these guides do not need to be translated to be understood by the children.

  • Guides include additional explanation of key points for the teacher, adding value as embedded professional development.

  • EXAMPLE: Teachers are prompted to remember that a/an is a phonological rule, not a spelling rule.

One Workbook/Activity Book Per Level

  • This component may be a global book filled with natural extension activities from the course book, or it could become an extension product.

  • EXAMPLE: Workbook could extend the range of adjectives after Book 1 Lesson 3, the fruits after Lesson 4, and the drinks after Lesson 5.

  • A syllabus-specific book helps ensure the Scope & Sequence of a particular ministry/ school is followed: e.g. teaching the question forms and negatives for verb “to be” in Lesson 1 and other verbs after Lesson 4.

Pupils Book and Activity Book

This is unit 1a. You will say, where is Muzzy? He actually comes in the next portion. We thought it would be a better focus and allow the students to understand Muzzy more. We have also added new pages that have "real life" images. These also have "audio" in the media file. Please note that we have also designed in mind for schools that have limited or no access to media. For these types of markets there is the big book, or the cartoon strip will be included in the book instead of screen shots. The spreads will also be Whiteboard enabled with embedded media (video and audio). These books will be an estimated 180 pages each.

Big Books

These have been designed for teachers who wish to have a visual aid in the classroom. They can be printed in all format sizes. Big Book 1: This is the "reinforcement/interaction book" with many of the activities and new ones added to spark conversation. Big Book 2: This is a repetition of the video script with visual aids. Again to reinforce
