EMPHASIS ON FUTURE SKILLS

We recognise that soft skills are becoming increasingly important in a rapidly changing and uncertain future. That is why STEM English has been designed to place an emphasis on the 4 Cs.

STEM English encourages students to build a coding mindset to prepare them for future studies and their working lives. A coding mindset is a willingness to experiment, an acceptance that you will make mistakes, an understanding that your improvement will not be linear and knowing that perseverance will succeed. STEM English develops students' coding mindset by teaching life skills from the domain of computational thinking and coding, for example, resilience, collaboration and problem solving. These skills are deeply integrated in the language learning activities in the Pupil's Books and Activity Books and don't rely on technology.

PROJECT WORK TO INSPIRE AND FOCUS

The benefits of project-based learning are numerous and this is what has set the foundation for the overall design of the course. It inspires and focuses learning from the very start, and gives students a sense of control and direction in their learning journey. In STEM English  this means that:

At the beginning of the unit, students are presented with a problem they need to think about and solve.

This hooks them into a real objective to work towards and helps with student engagement and motivation.

The project is, in fact, what directs the learning process in the unit - as they progress through the lessons, students build the knowledge and skills they need to complete the project.

CREATIVITY

Creativity is the ability to use one's imagination and produce novel and useful ideas. Creativity is essential for the future workplace and therefore it is vital that this is introduced at the earliest stage possible. In the classroom, it enables students and provides a level platform through which they can use prior knowledge to engage in new learning.

Cognitive strategies that support creative learning processes include brainstorming, problem-finding, reversing assumptions and expanding on ideas to create new ones. STEM English helps students to develop their creative potential in a variety of ways, for example, through hands-on making activities, exposing students to a variety of arts, and encouraging students to think and work creatively.

COMMUNICATION

Communication is a social process by which information is exchanged in order to convey meaning and achieve desired outcomes. This means that it takes many forms, for example, engaging in a conversation or debate, delivering a presentation, writing a letter and reading a book. The approach in STEM English reflects this understanding and provides students with a variety of opportunities to engage in real-world communicative activities and build real-world oracy and communication skills. These skills will ensure that students build confidence in communication and knowledge of techniques and language which are important qualities for their future studies.

CRITICAL THINKING

Critical thinking is the use of evidence, for example, a set of observations or information, to create an argument or method, or to solve a problem. We can break this down into four sub-skills: accumulate, create, critique and improve. STEM English helps students to develop their critical thinking skills by providing opportunities for students to collect or identify evidence, create arguments or methods, identify strengths and weaknesses, and suggest opportunities for improvement.

COLLABORATION

Collaboration is the process of working together to achieve shared goals through coordination and interdependence. We can break this down into three sub-skills: interpersonal communication through exchanging information, feelings and meaning in positive and prosocial ways; task management through organising the work of individuals and the team as a whole to support the achievement of group goals; and conflict resolution through effectively reconciling different perspectives, values, opinions or priorities within the group. STEM English provides students with a variety of opportunities to engage in collaborative activities so that they can develop skills in these areas.

STEAM FOR FUTURE SUCCESS

English Code includes a lesson in each unit using a Content Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) approach where students learn English through other subjects: Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Design or Maths (STEAM). This helps students to develop a deeper understanding, through the medium of English, of the curriculum material which is mapped against the US and UK common core curricula, plus other local curricula.

Learning English through STEAM subjects is motivating for students because it gives them a reason to learn, to understand and to discuss the subject matter. Students also benefit from their prior knowledge of the subject to ensure they understand the subject, to keep them engaged and to enable them to develop their knowledge of the English language. Language learning through STEAM subjects will ensure students develop important skills for their future studies.

GRAMMAR THROUGH CRITICAL THINKING

English Code uses an inductive approach to teaching grammar, which means that students are provided with the means to discover the grammar rules for themselves. This is achieved through teaching new grammar structures in memorable chunks to help students learn. Then example sentences are presented in a real-world context to ensure understanding. Critical thinking skills are at the basis of this and students analyse, identify relationships and recall prior knowledge to absorb and remember the new language patterns. The focus in starter is about acquiring confidence in English and learning vocabulary with a focus on listening and speaking.

ASSESSMENT FOR LEARNING TO EMPOWER STUDENTS

English Code uses an assessment for learning approach, which means that students become aware of their learning and are able to reflect on their progress. Assessment for learning is based on three key principles: having students understand and adapt their own learning objectives, performing ongoing assessment, and helping students to learn how to set their own goals and self-assess. As students go through the levels, this approach will empower them, and they will naturally know what to do when they don't understand something. Training students to set their own goals and be aware of progress develops reflective students, which is an important quality for their future studies.

PHONICS TO BUILD CONFIDENCE IN SPEAKING

STEM English uses the synthetic approach to teaching phonics which means that students learn sounds in a systematic way by associating them with one letter or a combination of letters. New sounds are taught through letters and example words for those sounds. This is important for students with little exposure to English outside of class. Having plenty of opportunities for practice, either receptively or productively, builds confidence in understanding spoken English and mastery of using those sounds while speaking.

LEARNING BEYOND THE CLASSROOM

The final activity in all projects provides students with an activity they can do at home. These activities extend the project and include various ways of encouraging students to take their learning beyond the classroom. It also provides evidence of learning for the parents by:

asking students to create something for home

requiring students to find out information about the lives of their family and friends

presenting something to their family and friends and asking for feedback

teaching their friends and family how and why to do something

having their family and friends doing or making something with them that can be recorded

using their skills and knowledge from the project and applying them to real-world situations.

Early foreign language education offers significant advantages to children and young learners. Here are some of the key benefits:

        Easier Language Acquisition: Young minds are more receptive to new knowledge and sounds. Early foreign language education allows them to assimilate the language as part of their daily lives, making the learning process easier and faster.

        Improved Cognitive Skills: Early foreign language education promotes the development of cognitive skills such as concentration, memory, and problem-solving.

        Cultivation of Multicultural Awareness: Children who learn a foreign language early on develop respect and understanding for different cultures and customs at an earlier age.
