PROGRAMUL „A DOUA ȘANSĂ” • NIVEL SECUNDAR INFERIOR
About this course
This is a general English course for the adults and young adults included in the “Second Chance” educational programme, lower secondary education, implemented by the Romanian Ministery of Education. The course is based on the Second Chance English Syllabus for lower secondary level, approved by Ministerial Order nr. 5735 of 29.12.2005. It consists of a Student’s Book and a Teacher’s Guide. Approach This course uses the functional communicative approach to teaching English, placing more emphasis on skills development and learning of new language than on grammar. We suggest using the constructivist approach to learning, first allowing students to check what they know, using their previous knowledge or experience as a starting point, then helping them to work out the rules for themselves through analyzing examples of semi-authentic communicative situations, and finally applying what they have learned in various situations. Since the course is aimed at adults and young adults, self-reflection upon the learning process is emphasized throughout the course. Structure of the course The Student’s Book begins with an introductory lesson, “Passport to English.” As well as raising students’ awareness about the importance of studying English, the lesson could also be used to help students reflect about different learning styles and abilities. The main body of the course consists of three thematic units, each containing four two-hour lessons. At the end of each unit there is a “Check Your Progress” page, meant to help students reinforce what they have learned and prepare for final assessment. The course ends with some practical advice on assessment. It would be useful for your students if you could go through it together. Finally, there is a vocabulary section at the end of the Student’s Book, covering most of the words used in the Student’s lessons (about 250). Lesson development Each lesson is introduced by a “Can you…?” section, aimed at identifying students’ needs, bringing out their previous knowledge, if any. This is followed by asking a thinking question – “Think about it!” Students can express their opinions on topics related to the theme of the unit. It is advisable to guide the discussion to various situations in which they might need to use the language in the lesson. The discussion can be conducted in Romanian or the students’ mother tongue, but some of the students might want to try and use English. New language is introduced in the “Useful language” section and the “Remember!” box on the right side. Please note that these are mere suggestions and teachers should adapt the language content to the needs of their students, within the main topic of the unit. The teaching notes for each lesson offer suggestions as to methods of introducing new vocabulary, but the general guideline is to let students discover for themselves as much as they can, using what they already know, the vocabulary at the end of the Student’s Book, dictionaries, or even the texts in the “Let’s learn” section. As they progress through the book, students will probably need less and less support with this. Sometimes, basic grammar rules are outlined in the “Do you know?” box and there are some pronunciation tips in each “Sound wise!” box. In the “Let’s learn” section, the new language is integrated into meaningful contexts. Encourage students to constantly make notes in their Learning Diary about what they have learned, what they would like to learn and also about personal contexts in which they have used or might need to use the new language. “Your turn” provides students with opportunities to use the new language in guided contexts. Some of the activities are based on drilling structures and functions, but most of them will require students to interact with each other using the new language. “Check this!” is a self-assessment section consisting of a few “I can do” statements, based on the guidelines of the Common European

Teaching mixed ability classes Some of the students in the programme might already have some abilities in English. “Use it!” invites students to use the new language in a freer and more integrated way. These are good opportunities for group work. PROGRAMUL „A DOUA ȘANSĂ” • NIVEL SECUNDAR INFERIOR 5 . As students go through these statements. Students should be encouraged to think of other ways they could transfer the language they have learned to relevant contexts for themselves. but pair up similar level students in freer speaking activities. Possible ideas might be writing introductory letters to a similar class in another town or country. mix stronger with weaker students in pair or group work. they reflect on what they have learned and decide which areas they still need to improve. – Always keep some extra activities at hand to give early finishers to do. students might want to devise new exercises themselves. alternatively. The assignments in this section are again to be regarded as mere suggestions. while others will need more time and support to make some progress.Framework for Foreign Languages and the official syllabus for the “Second Chance” programme. Here are a few suggestions for dealing with mixed ability classes: – Set the working pace to that of the average student. some students might make progress at a very fast pace. – When monitoring pair or group work. – Allow time for students to check their answers in pairs or groups before checking with the whole class. The activities in the previous section can serve as a basis for self-assessment.
