In Perspectives, learners develop an open mind, a critical eye and a clear voice in English.
An Open Mind
Perspectives encourages students to develop an open mind by looking at one powerful idea in ways that they may have never considered before.
Every unit explores one idea from different perspectives, giving students opportunities for practicing language as they look at the world in new ways.
Real-world stories of innovative organizations and global citizens appear in readings, listenings and activities to provide another way of looking at the same idea.
Perspectives bring a world of ideas into the classroom by focusing on the unique point of view of a TED speaker in every unit.
A Critical Eye
In Perspectives, learners develop a critical eye for analyzing, evaluating, and synthesizing information in order to develop their own opinions and ideas.
Students think critically in every lesson while listening, reading, writing, and participating in classroom discussions.
Carefully-structured lessons help students become critical consumers of information by encouraging them to think deeply about new information and where it comes from.
Learners build the language skills and strategies they need to develop a clear voice in English.
A Clear Voice In English
Learners are encouraged to respond regularly using new language as they learn about important ideas that affect us all in a global society.
‘My Perspective’ prompts and choice activities encourage students to be more reflective, engaged participants in the classroom, and communicate their own unique points of view.
Strategies for communicating in person and in writing give learners the support they need to confidently express their own ideas in English in a variety of formats.
