Challenge. Develop. Inspire.
insight is a five-level British English course for secondary students that will challenge your students to reach their full potential, develop their understanding and knowledge of language and inspire them to a lifelong love of learning.
insight is packed full of thought-provoking topics, information-rich texts and interesting activities and tasks that will motivate and engage your students whilst challenging their opinions and inspiring them to think critically about the world they live in.
insight will help your students to develop a deeper understanding of how language works. Lesson material looks at not just the meaning of vocabulary but also the grammatical rules that govern its use, enabling students to use language with confidence.
insight offers everything you need to make your lessons engaging and informative, whilst the interactive online teaching tools and integrated video/audio will enrich your students' learning in the classroom.
Students are supported to learn good study habits through strategy boxes and step-by-step guides throughout the course, and unlimited online practice enhances independent learning at home, whilst also allowing you to easily track student’s progress and spend less time marking.
With insight your students get an insight into the world with topics that will inspire them to think. Interesting subjects range from the science of taste, to immigration in New York, and the history of the BBC.
The topics in insight include nuggets of information that your students will want to tell their friends and family about, helping them remember the lesson and the language points that were covered, and because all the material is based on actual facts and real-life events, students can take their learning even further by finding out more about the topics at home.
Language for life (not just for exams)
insight will help your students to develop a broad and deep understanding of language with a syllabus that challenges them to go deeper. They will learn about the rules of grammar and vocabulary such as collocation, word building, register and connotation, helping them to gain a greater awareness of not just the theory, but also of how to use grammar and vocabulary in practice.
The vocabulary insight pages develop students' dictionary and thesaurus skills enabling them to work more independently and they can further practise their skills in vocabulary and grammar at home using the Online Practice material.
Developing independent study skills
insight prepares your students for a life of learning with a focus on developing their independent study skills and encouraging autonomous learning. Progress check pages in the Workbook allow students to reflect on and take responsibility for their learning. Strategy boxes with step-by-step guides in every unit develop your student's core skills, while a dedicated double page writing spread in every unit with a step-by-step writing guide builds good writing habits.
The interactive tools in the Online Workbook Plus and Online Practice encourage students to independently review their learning. Students can practise an activity as many times as they need and check if they answered correctly. Automatic marking, the integrated Speak and Record feature, and instant links to the Grammar Reference and Wordlists all enhance the supportive environment for independent learning beyond the classroom.
Supporting your teaching practice
There is a wealth of additional resources available to support your teaching with insight, including the Teacher’s Resource Disk, Class Audio CDs, a Test Bank Multi-ROM (playable on a computer or a CD player) and all the interactive functionality found with iTools.
The Online Gradebook keeps you up to date with students' learning, making it easy for you to track and report on progress, and letting you quickly identify strengths and weaknesses within a class.
