Cambridge Lower Secondary Global Perspectives Stage 7 Learner's Skills Book
Author/s: Keely Laycock
This series has been developed for the Cambridge Lower Secondary Global Perspectives Curriculum Framework (1129).
This learner's skills book for Stage 7 has been created to help students develop key 21st century skills.
Written by experienced teacher and author, Keely Laycock, students are encouraged to reflect on topics at a personal, national and global level, while developing skills for their future in a scaffolded and measurable way.
Produced with feedback from teachers and students all around the world, teachers will benefit from a flexible resource that they can tailor to their classroom needs.
A large collection of collaborative and independent activities engages students and makes learning visible in the classroom.
Peer assessment opportunities help improve collaboration and reflection.
Self-assessment opportunities for every skill allows students to look back and see how they’ve progressed.
Questions drive student thinking and surface understanding – such as ‘what do you think the term “research” means?’ and ‘write down what you found difficult last lesson and one way that you can overcome this difficulty’.
Six sections develop key skills for evaluation, reflection, analysis, research, collaboration and communication.
Clear learning goals at the start of every section highlight the assessment objectives.
Tried and tested activities used in classrooms around the world are also included.
