Lead the Way is LOMLOE-ready
Everything you need to meet the requirements of the new educational law.
At Macmillan Education we have accompanied teachers through several education reforms, and the changes brought in with the LOMLOE will be no exception. As experts in education and leaders and investigation and innovation, we constantly strive to be by your side with the materials you need.
How does Lead the Way make sure that you are LOMLOE-ready
Lead the Way works on both Key Competences and Specific Competences of the Foreign Language subject. All the units include activities to work on oral and written comprehension and production skills, interaction, mediation, multilingualism and interculturality.
Termly projects require pupils to work collaboratively to respond to inspiring real-world challenges and activate problem-solving and decision-making skills through learning situations, thus reinforcing self-esteem, autonomy, critical spirit and responsibility. The Programaciones also offer suggestions to extend these learning situations, linking them to Values, SDGs and cross-curricular content.
Lead the Way includes multiple formative assessment tools, such as the ‘Review’, ‘Think about’ and ‘Exam practice’ sections at the end of each unit of the Activity Book, as well as the ‘Review’ sections after every two units of the Pupil’s Book. It also includes self-evaluation activities in the ‘Assessment for learning’ activities on each page of the Activity Book and a Checklist in the Writing section. The Programaciones also offer Evaluation Rubrics for each unit, as well as general Evaluation Criteria Rubrics and Key Competences Rubrics.
