Introducing insightAims of the courseA note from the authorTo challenge students to think critically about theworld around themI’m reading a book called The Element by Ken Robinson.On a table nearby, a few teenagers are chatting with theirfriends after a long day at school. ‘Our task is to educate (ourstudents’) whole being so they can face the future,’ I read.‘We may not see the future, but they will and our job is tohelp them make something of it.’ I look at the kids and think:‘That’s quite a big task!’It’s a challenge we all face, whether we’re teachers, parents,educational writers or youth workers. Our short-termobjectives may be different: we may help teenagers oryoung adults pass school-leaving exams, understand mathsformulae, or take part in community projects. But ultimatelyour long-term objectives are the same: to help youngpeople develop a passion for and curiosity about life, to givethem confidence in their own ideas, to help them becomeopen-minded, global citizens.When I started writing insight I immediately understoodthat the course was trying to satisfy these two objectives:a rigorous syllabus would help students develop theirlanguage skills, but it also had its eye on long-termobjectives, too.Today’s students are very sophisticated. They have anamazing ability to multitask, and they often have a broadknowledge of other cultures and countries. They also have apoint of view, and in insight we value that and seek it out –we also challenge it. We constantly ask students to question,evaluate and make cross-cultural comparisons: What do youthink? Do you agree? What would you do? Speaking helpsdevelop their confidence as language learners, but it alsodevelops confidence in their own opinions and beliefs.In insight we’ve added a special ingredient, too: in manytexts and topics there is a fact or point of view studentsmay not have come across before, something surprising orthought-provoking, something they may want to tell theirfriends in a café after school. The aim of this extra ingredientis to inspire curiosity, and a passion to discover and learn. Itmight help them think about an issue in a different way, andmake a lesson more memorable.That’s what insight is all about. It strives to create the rightconditions for students to grow, learn and develop theirideas and experience. To become lifelong learners. ‘Youcannot predict the outcome of human development,’ addsKen Robinson, wisely. ‘All you can do is like a farmer createthe conditions under which it will begin to flourish.’Jayne Wildmaninsight has been developed not only to teach studentsEnglish, but also to increase their awareness of the worldaround them. Amongst other topics, insight addresses socialissues, culture, literature, history, social media, science andtechnology. Students are encouraged to think criticallyabout the issues raised, to evaluate their current point ofview, and to share their opinions with others even once theyhave left the classroom. Texts and recordings include aninteresting fact or unexpected opinion which students maywant to tell their friends and families about. This will helpmake the lesson more memorable and help students recallthe language and ideas they have learned.Video documentary clips also cover cultural and historicalthemes broadening students’ understanding of the customs,traditions and history of English-speaking countries.Literature insight introduces students to classic works ofEnglish literature and offers an alternative way of exploringthe culture of English-speaking countries.To inspire discussion in the classroomThe information-rich and thought provoking texts andrecordings will inspire discussion amongst students.Structured activities encourage students to question theirexisting opinions and the opinions of others. Activitiesare designed to stimulate critical thinking, to encourageparticipation and the exchange of opinions.The speaking sections also teach the skills needed to be anactive participant in discussions, such as interrupting, askingfor clarification, disagreeing, and encouraging others tospeak.To give a deeper understanding of vocabulary andbuild the confidence to use itinsight gives students a deeper understanding of languageand goes beyond purely teaching meaning. insight exploressuch areas as collocation, word-building and connotationto provide a fuller understanding of how vocabulary is used.This comprehensive approach allows students to use newlanguage with greater confidence.Vocabulary is taught in the context of reading or listeningtexts. All reading and listening texts are accompanied byvocabulary exercises that focus on the meaning of newvocabulary in context. Additionally, the understandingof new vocabulary is reinforced through exercises whichpractise their use in a new context.All vocabulary is taught in sets organized by topic, word typeor theme. Research has shown that teaching vocabulary inthis way makes it easier for students to recall and use.Vocabulary insight pages not only explore language in moredepth, but also build students’ study skills, including keepingvocabulary records, ways of recording new vocabulary, usinga dictionary and a thesaurus.These skills will help students decode, retain and use newvocabulary correctly in the future.400b Insight upp-Int TB Intro.indd 421/03/2019 14:50

To help students explore the rules of grammarTo encourage autonomous and lifelong learningThe guided discovery approach to grammar in insightallows students to work out grammar rules for themselvesand furnishes them with a better understanding of howgrammar works. This approach actively engages students inthe learning process making them more likely to understandand remember the grammar point.New structures are always presented in the context of areading or listening text, so that students become familiarwith the usage and meaning of the grammar, beforemanipulating its form. The guided discovery approachmeans students analyse examples from the texts before theydeduce the rules. If necessary, the rules can be checked inthe Grammar reference section in the Workbook.The practice exercises are topic-based, so students arerequired to understand the usage and meaning of thegrammatical structures, as well as the form. The freespeaking activities allow students to use the new languagein a personalized, productive and creative way.insight prepares students for further study and life outsidethe classroom environment by developing their skills forlifelong learning and encouraging autonomous learning.Strategy boxes in every unit offer step-by-step guides onhow to improve core skills. Students apply the strategyimmediately in a series of exercises to allow them to see howthe strategy can benefit them. The strategies are relevant tostudents’ studies now and in the future, so they will be ableto use the same strategy again and again.Writing preparation covers extensive practice anddevelopment of key skills, such as brainstorming, planning,checking, paraphrasing, avoiding repetition, etc. These skillswill also help students beyond the classroom environment.The use of authentic texts builds students’ confidenceby showing them that they can tackle these kinds oftexts outside the classroom, in real-life situations. Theaccompanying activities teach students how to thinkcritically – question ideas, analyse, rationalize, synthesize, andmake reasoned judgements – skills that students will need inall areas of their lives, especially in higher education and theworkplace.Autonomous learning is also encouraged by developingdictionary and thesaurus skills. Students gain a betterunderstanding of how dictionaries and thesauruses look,the information they provide, and how and when to usethem. Learning how to use these reference sources will helpstudents with their learning now and in their future life.These are all skills that teach self-reliance and fosterautonomous learning, equipping students for life afterschool or university.To encourage students to reflect and takeresponsibility for their learningSelf-reflection plays a key role in developing active, directedand responsible learners. Learners who are able to look tothemselves for solutions to problems rather than alwaysseeking out the help of others will be better equipped forlater life in academic or professional environments.insight encourages students to reflect on their learningin a variety of ways. The Review sections in the Student’sBook are an opportunity for them to see what they alreadyknow and where more work is needed. Students get marksfor completing the Reviews, so they can self-monitor theirprogress through the book.The Progress checks in the Workbook help students toidentify gaps in their knowledge and skills, and encouragestudents to rely on themselves when seeking ways ofimproving.The self-check feature in the Writing sections teachesstudents how to evaluate their own work against a set ofcriteria. The corrected writing assignments can also be arecord of their progress.00b Insight upp-Int TB Intro.indd 5521/03/2019 14:50
