Everything you need to meet the requirements of the new educational law.
At Macmillan Education we have accompanied teachers through several educational reforms, and the changes brought in with the LOMLOE is no exception. As experts in education and leaders in investigation and innovation, we constantly strive to be by your side with the materials you need.
How does Kids Can! make sure that you are all set for the LOMLOE??
Kids Can! works on both Key Competences and Specific Foreign Language Competences. All units include activities to work on oral and written comprehension and production, interaction, mediation, multilingualism and interculturality.
All Kids Can! Units encourage students to solve problems creatively and cooperatively on the opening questions and through the Projects, the Curiosity Corner and Creativity Corner sections, reinforcing self-esteem, autonomy, critical spirit and responsibility. The lesson plans also offer suggestions to extend these learning situations, linking them to the Values and SDGs and cross-curricular content.
Kids Can! includes multiple formative assessment tools, such as the ‘Review’ sections at the end of each unit or the termly reviews. Also included are self-assessment activities for the unit project, assessment rubrics and rating scales for each unit which are included in the lesson plans.
