Influence Today 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 Influence Today make sure that you are LOMLOE-ready?
Influence Today 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.
All Influence Today Units open with a What do you think? question that encourages students to think about specific topics. The end-of-unit projects lead students to respond collaboratively to questions, putting into practice the knowledge and language gained from the unit. The Programaciones also offer suggestions to extend these learning situations, linking them to Values, SDGs and cross-curricular content.
Influence Today includes multiple formative assessment tools, such as the â€˜Final Reflectionâ€™ section at the end of each unit in the Studentâ€™s Book, or the â€˜Self-evaluationâ€™ section at the end of each unit in the Workbook. It also includes â€˜Peer reviewâ€™ activities in the Studentâ€™s Book, favouring co-assessment, and the Competence Evaluation Tracker, including colourful and original Evaluation targets for each unit. The Programaciones also offer Evaluation Rubrics for each unit, as well as general Evaluation Criteria Rubrics and Key Competences Rubrics.
