THE VAUGHAN METHOD
The Vaughan Method is based on three key elements:
1. Oral production based classes
The first significant element of the Vaughan Method is that classes are
mainly based on oral production- At Vaughan Systems, we believe that
grammatical knowledge alone is not enough to master a language. In a
traditional class, following a non-Vaughan method, teachers often focus on
"grammatical theory" and not so much on linguistic practice. For example,
many teachers make students learn English as though the language were a
series of equations and make them memorise "if" "present simple" +
"future" = "the first conditional" structures. However, at Vaughan, we believe
that in real life situations, when things really matter, there is no time to start
memorising theory. Our method is designed to make students use language
more flexibly, in order to teach them to communicate correctly in English,
without stopping to think. In our experience, this flexible use of language
cannot be acquired through hours of studying grammar but rather through
hours of putting this theory into practice.
Nevertheless, although at Vaughan Systems, classes are mainly based on
oral communication, this does not mean the class is dedicated solely to
conversation. In fact, the number of conversation exercises we carry out is
limited. Indeed, we do work mainly with grammar, however putting this
grammar into practice using drill type exercises to solicit specific responses,
until students absorb these responses and learn to use the language we
teach flexibly.
Since we mainly work with spoken English, Vaughan Method classes are
highly energetic, making it difficult for students to disconnect or get bored
during lessons. They know that the teacher could ask them a question
about a text or ask them for an answer at any time. The natural manner
with which teachers deliver a Vaughan class promotes concentration and
therefore enables students to get the most out of every second of the class,
which is reflected in their progress.
2. Correction
The second significant element of the Vaughan Method is that we correct
each mistake at the very moment it was made and make students repeat
corrections.

Mission Accomplished Long 4

Why do we correct each mistake?


a) Upon doing so, students feel confident when speaking English because
they are aware of the progress they are making. They feel that the
teacher is correcting them increasingly less often as they progress.
b) Students end up trusting their teachers, because they know that when
they do not correct them, it is because they have used English correctly.
If teachers do not correct all mistakes, students will never be sure
whether what they are saying is correct. They can be sure with the
Vaughan Method.
c) We believe that if a mistake is left uncorrected, it is automatically
reinforced in the student's mind and they are therefore likely to repeat
the same mistake again in the future. In correcting each and every one
of the mistakes made, we break bad habits and replace them with good
ones.
d) Students learn from the mistakes of others and this encourages them to
participate and concentrate throughout the entire duration of the class.
e) Correcting each and every one of the mistakes made, creates positive
pressure in the classroom since students are anxious to speak well; this
is achieved quickly in the classroom environment, in a fun and
demanding way.
Why do we make immediate corrections?
a) It seems that if we correct students straight away while it is fresh in their
minds, it is easier for them to understand what the mistake they made
was.
b) Because practice does not make perfect. Practice simply makes things
become automatic. If we wait to correct a mistake, it is likely that this
mistake will become automatic. We insist on correcting mistakes as
soon as they are made to make students give the correct response
automatically.
c) Students end up correcting their own mistakes when they speak and
doing so plays a very important role in internalising the language.
Why do we make students repeat?
a) If we correct a student then continue with the class without saying
anything, the correction becomes a criticism. By making students repeat
the correct form, we are able to praise them and the correction process
therefore always ends on a positive note.
b) When students make a mistake, it is important that they repeat the
correct form several times in order to break bad habits.
c) Repetition also creates confidence, since students have very little doubt
as to the correct form of expressing the idea in question.
d) Learning a language is by no means easy and mistakes are inevitable. At
Vaughan, we do not turn a blind eye to mistakes; we accept that they
play an important part in the learning process and therefore work on
them repeatedly, until students learn to use the language correctly and
flexibly.

3. Motivation
The third important element of the Vaughan Method is motivation. Our
"Mission" is to ensure that students get the most out of every second of the
class, in addition to their time outside the classroom. One of the main ways
we keep students motivated is by showing them the progress they have
made. We do not overlook mistakes but rather pinpoint and work on them
until they become strong points. With the Vaughan Method, students are
aware that they are actually making progress and this motivates them to
want to keep improving.
HOW TO APPLY THE METHOD
The Teaching Handbook contains a detailed plan for every lesson, following the
Vaughan style, for all of the Missions in each one of the units for the year. We
have dedicated two complete pages to each Mission, which explain exactly how
to apply the Method in sixty minute classes throughout the year. Below is a step
by step guide on how to get the most out of the Teaching Handbook and, in
turn, the Mission Accomplished classes.
CLASS AIMS
The first thing you will notice in the class plans is an image taken directly from
the corresponding mission in the student's book. This is what students will be
working with throughout the class and the drills we carry out will be based
around it. A numbered list of lesson aims and the materials needed may be
found below the image.
Below the Aims and Materials, we have also included a section on teaching tips,
which highlight the most important grammar points to be remembered, possible
"false friends" and pronunciation mistakes that may be made during the day's
lesson, as well as student motivation techniques, following the Vaughan style.
Finally, we have a special section for those who "finish fast", where additional
material for top students who finish exercises more quickly than expected can
be found.
The aims of each lesson should be looked over before delivering the class and
should prepare teachers to put their drills into practice. It is important to
remember that students always come first. Knowing the direction in which a
class is heading and potential difficulties that may be encountered helps to put
more energy into it and plan it more carefully.
EACH LESSON PLAN
Alongside the image from the student book there is a complete plan for each
lesson, which provides a minute by minute description of how the class should

Mission Accomplished Long 4

play out, according to the Vaughan Method. In line with the Vaughan class style,
the lesson should be delivered with high energy and dynamism and should be
made up of exercises that vary rhythm, content and length, combining new
topics with revision, short drills with long ones and placing particular emphasis
on repeating and internalising structures that are both relevant and useful.
RECAP/REFRESH
The first exercise in all of our lessons is a revision/refresh exercise, in which
an essential element of the previous lesson is recapped. The aim of a refresh
type exercise should be to take student's enthusiasm at the start of a lesson
and turn it into a high energy drill that makes them feel positive. During a
refresh exercise, it is important to ensure that the students are producing the
majority of the oral activity, be it repeating a phrase pronounced by the teacher
beforehand or making a phrase using a flashcard or key word. Refresh
exercises should never be difficult, as this will slow down the rhythm and
discourage students. The aim sought here is to make students aware of their
progress and ensure they have understood the essential point from the previous
class. This will motivate them and stimulate them for what is to follow.
SECTION: OBJECTIVE IN FOCUS
In the Objective in Focus section, we introduce new grammar, vocabulary and
pronunciation. This part of the class is always based on an exercise in the
student book and establishes the topics covered in it through a Vaughan style
drill. Each lesson plan includes two Objective in Focus drills, which, although
very different in style, cover the same point. Working on the same structure
using different drills helps students to become confident and flexible using the
same from the outset, which is essential for their future progress.
BACK TO BASICS
One of the pillars upon which the Vaughan method is based is that it focuses on
the essential. Essential elements of the language, such as numbers, dates and
the time must be mastered, although even the most advanced students
continue to experience problems with these elements if they do not practise
consistently. The Back to Basics exercises must be used and a few minutes of
each lesson must be spent on a topic guaranteed to help students with their day
to day English experiences.
SONG TIME
Song time is a good way of breaking more difficult drill activities up and usually
occurs about half way through the class. Through Song time, students
consolidate unit vocabulary and participate in an exercise that differs greatly
from the others. Song time should be a high energy exercise, since this will

Mission Accomplished Long 4

encourage students to reengage throughout the rest of the lesson.


HOMEWORK
As a Vaughan teacher, it is important to never set homework at the end of a
class, since setting homework is perhaps the part of the class at which
enthusiasm is at its lowest. The corresponding unit Mission in the Activity Book
provides excellent exercises for students to do at home, in addition to the
material found in the Teacher Resource Book. Teachers should remember to
set well defined tasks and encourage students to do these exercises with their
parents.
REWIND
The Rewind section is very similar to the Refresh section, since it is used to
review a previous topic. However, in the Rewind section, students review
something learnt a long time ago. Just like the Refresh section, the Rewind
section should be high energy and place very particular emphasis on students'
ability to speak flexibly and on their speaking skills.
GAME TIME
The most important parts of a Vaughan class are the start and end of a lesson.
Just as the Refresh exercise is used to begin classes, there will be a "Game
Time!" exercise to end them. The most important thing about a "Game Time!"
exercise is that, just like the Refresh exercise, it is carried out with high energy
and involves all students in the class. Students should end each lesson feeling
happy and wanting to learn more English. The best way to achieve this is
through a varied, dynamic exercise such as those offered in "Game Time!" in
our lesson plans.
IN CONCLUSION
The Vaughan Method may be applied to any kind of class for any level, as
teachers are the driving force behind it all. If used correctly, the Teacher book
makes it possible to make the most out of each and every minute of the class,
to employ the method and guarantee that students take part in a dynamic, high
energy, English experience.
But remember: it all begins with the teacher.

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED KEY FACTORS


COMPETENCES AND LEARNING OBJECTIVES
Carlos Marchena
The Organic Law of Education of May 2006, specifically articles 6.1 and 6.2
thereof, gave rise to a new element being incorporated into the obligatory
educational stages of the curriculum. Moreover, the subsequent amendment
thereof in Organic Law 8/2013, of December 2013, for Improving the Quality of
Education, further introduced, under article 6.1, another curricular amendment
entitled learning objectives.
These amendments, when looking at the curriculum from a systemic point of
view, which are understood as the interdependence between each and every
one of the elements thereof, in turn impact the instruments designed to reflect
teacher organisation, i.e. didactic planning. Far from constituting mere
observations or simply supporting the progress made in the field of Educational
Sciences theoretically, they constitute the very backbone of the teaching task.
Looking at things from this point of view, suitably defining these terms and the
impact they have on editorial projects, becomes particularly relevant.
The term competence refers to the ability to comprehensively implement all
knowledge and personality traits acquired, which make it possible to solve a
diverse range of situations. It demonstrates an individual's ability to reorganise
what they have learnt and how to apply it to new contexts and situations.
Furthermore, the terms "basic" and "competences" together refer to the access
all students have to compulsory education.
Indeed, basic competences may be defined in many different ways. In
synthesising all the points they have in common, the following links may be
identified:
They cover a set of interrelated content, which is diverse in nature and
facilitates overall learning. (Principle of meaning.)
Contextualising what was learnt becomes particularly relevant (Principle of
functionality).
They involve a curricular selection and integration process.
They emphasise what has been learnt on both a personal and social level.
Competences constitute a new element introduced into the curriculum in order
to reorganise it; this is done with two aims in mind:
To adjust curriculums, which are often too weighty and broad, in order to
improve the quality of education. This involves making educational proposals,
which are characteristically simple and versatile.
To achieve learning that really works and makes it possible to attain true
permanent education within a society governed by change and continuous
innovation.
Royal Decree 126/2014, in which the basic curriculum for Primary Education is

Mission Accomplished Long 4

established, in accordance with Recommendation 2006/962/EC of the


European Parliament and Council, issued on the 18th of December, 2006, on
key competences for permanent learning, sets out the following:
Basic competences:
1. Linguistic communication.
2. Mathematical competences and basic competences in science and
technology.
3. Digital competence.
4. Learning to learn.
5. Social and civic competences.
6. Sense of initiative and enterprising spirit
7. Cultural awareness and expressions
In turn, the learning standards constitute the different levels of knowledge and
skills (content and competences) established for students of each subject and
stage or level being assessed. These standards establish what students must
learn and, as a result, what the teacher must teach. Indeed, it is precisely in this
teaching proposal that learning standards play an instrumental role
(assessment tool) for determining the achievements outlined above.
Exploring this idea in more detail, we are able to confirm that these standards
provide the teacher with information on the success they have achieved and the
goals yet to be met, which enables them to focus on and plan the teaching
progress using their schedule. This means that the curriculum and particularly,
the basic competences, constitute a basic reference point when it comes to
establishing what our students should learn, whilst the standards make it
possible to monitor them. These standards in turn require levels of achievement
to be established. As a result, a scale according to which said standards may be
evaluated must be defined, which facilitates a truly personalised learning
process. In turn, this creates the need to employ more qualitative assessment
tools, amongst which technical observation tools are deemed most important.
Looking at didactic planning from a learning standards point of view, these
standards constitute the guidelines upon which teaching should be based. In
this sense, when linking the concept referred to above with learning maps,
these standards define learning targets, without specifying how these targets
should be met. Teaching efforts are therefore aimed at each and every one of
the students meeting these targets, the work they carry out being based on a
personal feedback process.
In accordance with the above, the learning standards should incorporate a
series of characteristics:

10

Mission Accomplished Long 4

They should include a wide range of knowledge and/or skills that students
must attain.
It must be possible to assess them. In other words, it must be possible to
measure the knowledge and skills established using approved tools and
avoiding value judgments.
They should be written clearly and concisely. The language used to describe
requirements at each and every achievement level should be unambiguous.
They should incorporate learning levels that make it possible to classify
students' progress in accordance with how the curriculum is designed.
The level they require should be appropriate and suited to the potential of the
students at which they are aimed.
They should be inclusive. They must respect different teaching and learning
styles, without specifying how goals should be met or restricting the way in
which achievement thereof is shown.
In view of what is established within the current organic standards framework,
the key to the entire didactic proposal is that it must reconcile these two
curricular elements, in such a way that the standards serve as a basic
"roadmap", to combine content and competences and ensure equality, by
designing intrinsic tasks that model such proposals.
TEACHING VALUES
Rafael Valbuena and Ricardo Gmez
As is the case with all polysemic words, discussing their meaning enables us to
focus on the context or contexts in which they might be used. In a conversation,
we are able to distinguish between expressions such as, "I really value
(appreciate) your opinion", "the value (financial worth) of the company's shares
has dropped in the last two years", or "Jack was the team's most valued (highlyregarded) player last season".
Moreover, when "value" is used in the plural, i.e. when someone talks about
"values", we are able to work out that they are using a specific meaning from
the dictionary, which refers to the whole set of values respected by a certain
group or entity. We therefore use phrases such as "we should teach values" or
"it seems our society is suffering from a crisis in values".
Indeed, there is a branch of philosophy concerned with the study of values. This
branch is known as axiology, defined for the first time in 1902, although people
began to reflect on values a few centuries before that, when some thinkers tried
to define the qualities of an individual or social group, which they added to
other, more tangible characteristics. Furthermore, they established certain value
categories, namely social values, values necessary for peaceful cohabitation
within society (cultural identity, tolerance, justice, equality and solidarity, etc.,)
and personal values (honesty, loyalty, austerity, humility and modesty, etc). They
also distinguished different types of ethics, such as those mentioned above and
aesthetics (balance, beauty and harmony, etc).
11

Mission Accomplished Long 4

Indeed, some philosophical groups consider values to be subjective entities, in


the sense that they are derived from interpretations made by individuals and
social groups, as a kind of social agreement. As a result, these values change
as societies evolve. Other thinkers maintain that values are objective entities,
i.e. basic principles upon which morals and professional ethics are based, which
regulate the ethical behaviour of individuals and groups.
Value types and hierarchies
Whether objective or not, many philosophers believe it necessary to establish a
hierarchical set of values, so as to enable people and societies to organise
themselves around them, in order to get what they need, i.e. food, health,
protection, peace, security, environmental quality, progress and happiness. It
should therefore be compulsory to comply with values such as social justice, for
instance, since it constitutes one of the pillars of human society and is in turn,
based on other values related to people and equality before the law. This set of
"great values" exists at the heart of our political systems, laws and penal codes,
in a more or less correct and complete way.
In smaller environments, such as a company, family or the school itself, other
values exist, which help to meet the specific goals of this social group.
Generally speaking, they are of utmost necessity when it comes to achieving
social cohesion, peaceful cohabitation and meeting the specific needs of each
of the group's members. Some of these ethical values include:
Value group related to RESPECT, the most important or essential of which
include respecting nature, other people and yourself, which in turn give us
tolerance, composure and patience, etc.
Group of values related to JUSTICE: Comradeship, solidarity, truthfulness,
loyalty, gratitude and hard work (in the sense of endeavor, effort and
perseverance), etc.
Group of values related to SELF-CONTROL: Bravery, austerity, modesty,
discretion, serenity and resilience, etc.
This category of values is by no means exhaustive and may vary slightly in
axiology contracts. Nevertheless, although the words used may vary, there will
be very little difference in their meaning.
In contrast to ethical values, it is not compulsory to comply with aesthetic
values. Nevertheless, they are worth emphasising as they bring satisfaction
and happiness, not only to those who practise such values but also to those
who witness them. Aesthetic values refer to practising sport, arts, games and
creative leisure, etc. Nobody is obliged to play the piano, dance or paint but we
believe things like reading, playing, visiting museums, going to the cinema or a
concert, enrolling at music schools or practising sport to be valuable. Upon
putting these values into practice, we feel better about ourselves, are happier
and feel more complete as a person.

12

Mission Accomplished Long 4

Teaching values at school. Where to start?


According to axiology, individuals have a moral "axis" or conscience, which is
like a body that gives rise to intuition, being able to recognise and appreciate
the value of an action and certain behaviours or situations. One purpose of the
school should be to teach this "axis", not only from a moral standpoint, in which
our conscience enables us to judge whether or not a value has been complied
with but also in terms of "the place and means" with which to clarify the values
upon which both individual and group actions should be based. It is important to
bear in mind that a value is something that "must be", even if it is not complied
with or carried out.
School is a social environment in which we learn, share and live together. Boys
and girls participate in the "great social values" surrounding the school and in
turn, teachers create a space in which to develop "other values" derived from
learning, living and working together.
It is therefore worth looking to the definitions of the word "value" given in the
official Royal Spanish Academy dictionary:
1. "The worth of things, in terms of usefulness or ability, to meet needs or
provide wellbeing or enjoyment". Values related to learning, such as
appreciating knowledge, enjoyment through discovery or enjoying speaking
a language itself as a means of communication, etc., are derived from this
meaning.
2. "The scope of the meaning or importance of a thing, action, word or
sentence", which leads us to think about the repercussions of our actions
and in turn, to find values related to justice and respect.
3. "The quality possessed by certain entities, which are considered positive
and thereby held in high esteem", for example an appreciation for the arts,
sciences etc., and the sense of wellbeing they give us.
As teachers, it is our responsibility to make an effort to develop behaviour
based values such as respect, self-control and justice. Throughout the year,
using the didactic proposals linked to the unit plans, specific values will be
mentioned, for example modest spending, discretion in the sense of good
judgment when it comes to speaking and working, responsibility in terms of
being aware of the consequences of our actions, self-control when it comes to
criticising or making judgments, respect for nature and social assets,
perseverance with our tasks, loyalty and companionship when it comes to
teamwork, etc.
It is clear that we should teach the ethical and aesthetic values mentioned
above, thus developing and maturing this moral "axis". When working in the
classroom, we should name and describe these values, to make them "visible"
to our students, who will eventually incorporate them into their actions,
furthermore choosing the appropriate steps to put them into practice. History
presents us with many examples of what happens when societies and
individuals and sometimes even the majority, act unethically, according to their
own wants and beliefs. Regardless of our personal beliefs, this should be
reason enough to confer objectivity to some values and make a deliberate,

13

Mission Accomplished Long 4

systematic effort to convey them, as a strong foundation upon which society


may develop and progress, both sensibly and effectively.
MULTIPLE INTELLIGENCES
Blanca Aguilar
"Every person has a unique combination
of multiple intelligences. This constitutes
the fundamental challenge faced by
education. We might ignore these
differences and assume all minds to be
the same. Or we might nurture the
differences between them".
(Howard Gardner)
The concept of multiple intelligences was introduced by Howard Gardner. In his
book, Frames of mind (1995), eight types of intelligence are described, namely
linguistic intelligence, mathematical/logical intelligence, spatial intelligence,
bodily or motor-kinesthetic intelligence, interpersonal intelligence, intra-personal
intelligence and naturalistic intelligence.
The use of his theory, based on the science of knowledge, in psychology and
neuroscience, not only revolutionised the concept of intelligence that existed to
that date but also gave rise to changes in pedagogical focus. Indeed, according
to this concept of intelligence, we all possess each type but each one is present
to a greater or lesser degree depending on our biological make-up, interaction
with others and the culture surrounding us. This means that each individual has
a unique combination of intelligences. Furthermore, Gardner defines
intelligence as the ability to "act", to solve and create problems, create products
and play a useful role within society. This ability may therefore be developed
through stimuli, experiences and situations, etc., thus making genetic make-up
or predisposition important but not decisive.
This approach therefore gives rise to a significant change to the concept of
school and education.
About the teacher:
Teachers should have excellent observation skills and learn to adopt a role that
gives students room to discover their predominant type(s) of intelligence and
own leaning styles. This will benefit students and forms the basis upon which to
develop the curriculum.
They should respect the individual characteristics of each learning type and the
abilities of each particular student, without overvaluing some types at the
expense of others and thinking of each student as a unique being with unique
needs.
About the student:
In the sense of a set of intelligences, attention should be paid to each
individual's weak points in order to develop intelligence as harmoniously as

14

Mission Accomplished Long 4

possible.
Each student should be given their own role within the micro-society formed in
the classroom so that the intelligences they have serve the group. As a result,
we must help each student to find their place within this society, in order to
enable them to achieve emotional balance and a personal self-image with which
they are able to collaborate in all class activities, so as to contribute to the best
of each individual's skills.
About the curriculum:
The curriculum should ensure that situations in which all types of intelligences
are worked on are created, that learning models are varied, that the type of
activities carried out develop all kinds of intelligence, that assessment systems
also take into account the fact that learning models are not the same for
everybody and that they are therefore more in-depth, flexible and broad in
scope.

COOPERATIVE LEARNING
Yolanda G. Huerta
Cooperative learning is based on two basic assumptions, namely students'
active participation in their learning process and working together, sharing
responsibility and helping one another. It is defined as follows: "Didactic use of
small groups in which students work together to optimise their own learning and
that of others" (Johnson, Johnson and Holubec, 1999).
So why should we put cooperative learning into practice? What advantages
does it have over other learning structures?
If done properly, structuring learning on a cooperative model creates a
classroom environment that fosters learning and makes it possible to achieve
better results in terms of academic performance.
It makes it easier to pay attention to diversity, providing strategies and
resources to manage heterogeneity in the classroom. Teachers have more
time to assist students with greater needs individually. Furthermore, these
students may also benefit from the help of their classmates. Likewise, it
fosters the learning of more gifted students. Ultimately, it enables the creation
of inclusive classrooms.
It is a good way to teach values such as solidarity, cooperation, coexistence,
conversation and respect for differences.
Individual learning and teacher-student interaction are not eliminated but
rather added to student-student interaction and teamwork.
It improves the quality of group interactions and interactions with the teacher,
thus encouraging a more positive classroom environment.
Cooperative learning teams provide an ideal natural setting in which to teach
social and other skills, such as communication and methodological
competences and put them into practice. It entails simultaneously
internalising annual content and learning to work as a team.
It may be applied to all levels of education and in all areas of the curriculum.

17

Mission Accomplished Long 4

Cooperative learning makes working in the classroom more appealing and


motivates better students working in a team.
Cooperative learning is based around classroom teamwork, however entails
much more than just group work. Indeed, it involves:
Members of the team working to achieve a common goal. Each student's
efforts benefit their own learning, whilst also benefiting the rest of the group.
Students depend on one another and must join forces to achieve their goal
(positive interdependence between participants).
Each member of the team taking responsibility for their share of the work and
also for improving their own individual performance, thus preventing certain
students from relying on the work of others (personal responsibility and
individual performance).
Creating a place and time in which to share individual work, resources,
materials and opinions. Furthermore, it requires students in the group to
interact, motivate one another, help each other out and feel appreciated and
respected (promotes face-to-face interaction). It also means all group
members have an equal chance to and are equally obliged to participate
(equal participation) and always have someone in the group with whom they
can interact (simultaneous interaction).
In order to fulfill these aims, several authors, such as Spencer Kagan, Robert E.
Slavin, A. Ovejero, Pere Pujols and many others have described a series of
(both simple and complex) cooperative learning structures, which facilitate the
organisation of interaction between members of a work group. These structures
consist of a set of social activities, which are designed for a specific purpose but
which do not include content. They may be considered "strategies or tips"
which, when applied to curricular content, guarantee that students in a work
team interact with one another as much as possible, all share the work and help
their fellow team members to learn.
Simple learning structures are easy to acquire and use in the classroom and are
relatively short. They do not require much preparation and the skills they require
students to put into practice are by no means complex. Indeed, as Spencer
Kagan would say, "learn it today, apply it tomorrow and use it for the rest of your
life". On the other hand, more time and perhaps even various sessions must be
spent on complex learning structures in the classroom, which furthermore
require greater group preparation. In this didactic proposal, a series of simple
learning structures are put forward, which are to be applied to various content
within the curriculum.
It must be noted that teachers take on a different role where an individual model
is concerned. This will serve to support and direct teamwork and resolve doubts
or difficulties that may arise. The suitability of the team should also be taken into
account, to ensure team members are motivated.
How should cooperative learning be implemented in the classroom?
A good way of implementing cooperative learning is to take a simple
cooperative learning structure, organise work groups, then apply this structure
to a class session. The result would then have to be observed and assessed, in

18

Mission Accomplished Long 4

order to repeat the process, improving those elements necessary. One by one,
cooperative work structures will thereby be incorporated gradually and
sequentially into normal classroom practice.
Below is a list of specific steps to be followed and the fundamental elements to
be worked on in order to successfully implement cooperative learning in the
classroom.
1. Reinforce group cohesion and the positive classroom environment, through
group dynamics, games and activities.
2. Create cooperative work groups. Various pairs and "random teams" of four
students should be created in the first classroom cooperative learning
experiences, in order to see how they work together.
Towards the end of the first term, teams of four, referred to as "base teams"
should be created, in which students are able to work consistently for at
least one month. Throughout the second term, teams will be altered if
necessary to ensure that in the third term, the base teams are able to work
consistently. One key aspect of cooperative learning is that base teams are
mixed.
Moreover, each group may choose a name, picture and/or colour with
which to identify themselves. They would also have their own designated
space within the classroom.
3. Learn to cooperate and work as a team by learning about and practicing
social skills, resolving conflicts and employing group organisation skills.
Teamwork is a strategy we employ to facilitate learning, although it also
constitutes content that must be taught. When put into practice during
cooperative learning, certain skills, such as helping one another,
participating, encouraging teamwork, communicating with others
appropriately and resolving conflicts, etc., enable students to learn and
improve as the school year progresses.
Strategies for ensuring effective "Teamwork" include:
Assigning roles to base team members on a rotary basis, once every two
weeks.
Agreeing on rules and bearing them in mind during teamwork and
coexistence in the classroom.
Making a "quiet sign".
Assessing group work.

INFORMATION AND COMMUNICATIONS TECHNOLOGIES (ICT)


Ins Monreal
Before beginning, it is necessary to go through a brief overview of the social
change that has been under way over the last few decades, and which
necessarily has an effect on our educational environment and on the actors that
make it up including educators. We are in the midst of a highly technological
society that in recent years has undergone a radical change stemming, in part,
from the fast, continuous development of ICT. The fact of living in this society
has created an awareness of the need to provide educators with specialised
training so that they can use education technologies properly, and derive the
maximum benefit from them.
This change has given rise to new communication languages, modes and
environments, which educators should be prepared to make use of, in turn
acquiring digital competence, which is understood to mean having the ability to
seek out, obtain, process and communicate information, and transform it into
knowledge.
In order to understand the presence of ITC in our classrooms, we must first be
familiar with its two key terms: information and communication. Information,
because we are immersed in an information revolution that has made it possible
for all of us educators to have access to a greater amount of information, and to
higher speeds for processing, distributing and storing it. In recent times, the
Web has broadened this access at a dizzying pace, and now the difficulty that
20

Mission Accomplished Long 4

educators are faced with is often the time requited to sort out the documentation
found in the most objective and impartial way possible, since not everything
available on the Internet is trustworthy.
The second key term is communication; we know that the fact of ICT having
been developed also has an influence on the rise of new uses of language and
new ways of communicating. The ability to share information with other
educators from anywhere in the world opens up a space for communication and
exchange that would have been unthinkable just two decades ago: cyberspace
or the third environment, this new social space that, by extension, is also an
educational space.
ICT in education
We are convinced that schools should contribute to educating people in a
comprehensive manner; this contribution pushes for students to be trained to
understand information, and conditions educators to bear in mind that today's
students learn differently compared to students twenty years ago. Therefore,
when faced with the question, "Are we witnessing the emergence of new ways
of learning?", the answer is clear: "Yes, we are aware of the fact that our
students may generate Personal Learning Environments, because educators do
not have all the information and, although educators are in and of themselves a
source of knowledge, students have access to much broader information
through the Internet".
We at ANAYA aim to work together with educators, offering them a variety of
educational resources that complement their direct teaching and channel
students who are faced with a new way of learning. The basic idea is to create
teaching resources that are suited to students' new learning reality. For
students, we encourage resources that enable different uses of and approaches
to information.
It is important for schools to grow in harmony with the society of their day and
age, so that we can achieve a balance between students' informal learning
outside the education system and their formal learning acquired at school.
These are some of the reasons why ICT should be used in the classroom:
Because they foster a two-way type of learning: on the one hand, more
personalised, with a mind to diversity, and, on the other, learning that is also
collective and collaborative.
Because they transform the methodology of educators, who cease to be just a
transmitter of contents in order to become students' companion and trainer in
learning.
Because ICT tools transform classroom dynamics: interactiveness, as one of
the distinctive elements with respect to the old school, makes it possible to
further motivate students to learn.
In this new model, it is the educator who must take on this ambitious
commitment to the progress that educational technology makes available to

21

Mission Accomplished Long 4

them. So what is teachers' new role? To help students acquire the necessary
resources in order to know how to seek out and find the information they need
and integrate it into the knowledge they have already acquired, thus turning it
into their own personal knowledge. Part of this help comes from the publishing
house, which makes digital teaching materials available to educators.
Educator profiles
In terms of teachers' profiles, if we follow UNESCO guidelines (2008), we find
that there are three different types of educators in our classrooms, as far as
integrating ICT into the curriculum is concerned:

Innovative pre-tech teacher: has continuously and naturally lived alongside


technology, has developed his or her digital competence to an advanced
level, and regularly uses ICT in direct teaching.
Educator who has acquired digital competence but is not an innovator, since
he or she does not seek out new ways to use ICT in the classroom.
Technophobic educator: has not acquired digital competence and has an
aversion to technological educational tools; sometimes has to do with a lack
of knowledge as to the possibilities and uses that ICT can have in the
classroom.
At the end of the day, we will have to adapt our mindset to a new type of society
that will turn us more than ever into "world citizens". Educators cannot be
strangers to knowledge of the Web, or to so-called "web 2.0" tools and their
applicability in the classroom. These tools facilitate learning not just for
educators, but for students as well, and help to approach ICT from a completely
pragmatic perspective. Web 2.0 tools include: photopeach, glogster, flickr,
google drive, slideshare, popplet, blogger and prezi.
Students and ICT
We are aware of the fact that the students in our classrooms are different to
those of previous decades. There are a number of reasons for this; we may
point out, for example, that they have new ways of life, and new ways of
choosing and making use of information. This is a reality, just as it is a reality
that students take a natural approach to ICT, since they are immersed in a
technological society from which they garner significant learnings in an informal
manner. We would like to offer these students teaching resources that are
tailored to their level and their degree of digital competence since, moreover, we
know that today's students prefer to study with digital media and we, as
publishers, have made possible a type of book that is more attractive and
accessible for both educators and students alike.

UNIT PLANNING
The present plan constitutes a model temporal learning sequence for the third year of
Primary School.
This plan may be expanded through the optional resources proposed in the Teacher's
Guide, mostly by means of the drills and the Teacher's Resource Book. The Teacher's
Guide presents a sequence to be followed in each lesson and details of how and when
to introduce the different kinds of drills. The drills are oral activities based on repetition
and correction, the basic goal of which is for the children to consolidate grammar
structures so that they can then reproduce them fluently and naturally.

23
