1 INTRODUCTION TO THE METHOD

1.1 Theoretical Basis

Citizen Z is a method for teaching English designed for Secondary Education (ESO
Educacin Secundaria Obligatoria), achieving the objectives established by the
curriculum for and preparing pupils for the Cambridge First Certificate in English, level
B2 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). It is
essential to underline the practical orientation of the method's approach as this enables
pupils1 to conclude this stage of their education with enough knowledge to be able to
take an exam which is recognised and of great prestige internationally, Cambridge
English Language Assessment offering the most complete range of exams and
qualifications in English for both teachers and pupils world-wide. In this way, a
double objective is met: pupils receive training in strategies, skills and abilities which
are indispensable and in practising the process of learning a second language, with the
guarantee of training which has long been a success: preparing for First Certificate in
English.2

Citizen Z has been designed for studying for the official Cambridge exams and is
aimed at young people of between 12 and 18, depending on their degree of language
skill at any once time, allowing pupils to improve gradually over the six books in the
series.

Citizen Z is an entertaining general English course with ample preparation from the
official Cambridge exams integrally included. This flexible course includes all the tools
and technology needed in order to achieve the objectives set. Citizen Z is the only
official school method with exam contents for English language assessment both
produced and guaranteed by Cambridge. Its unique focus is designed to innovate
within linguistic research with regards to English vocabulary: English Vocabulary
Profile (EVP) is an online tool which provides pupils with detailed information about
words, sentences, phrasal verbs and idioms. The objective of the Cambridge
Learner Corpus (CLC) is to orientate pupils with regards to the exercises which will be
of greatest use to them, whether in the Student's Book or in the Workbook. So for both
learning English in general and for concentrating on exams, Citizen Z prepares you
and your pupils for what is to come: official Cambridge exams or real life.

Citizen Z is designed to cover both pupils' and teachers' needs in a complete,


dynamic, entertaining and rigorous fashion. The aim is not just to consolidate already
acquired knowledge but also to be aware of it practical use. In the same way, the
method has been written in such as way that pupils can understand and accept the fact
that learning a second language, in this case English, is a continual process to be
carried out over time, which is one of the Common European Framework of Reference
for Languages (CEFR)'s main principles. In addition, Citizen Z helps pupils to prepare

Throughout this programme, the terms teachers and pupils will be used as often as possible. En este mismo sentido, para
eludir las en ocasiones tediosas expresiones del tipo los alumnos y alumnas o los profesores y profesoras, predominar el
gnero masculino plural (profesores y alumnos), entendindose que hace referencia a ambos sexos.
2 The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) is the international standard which defines linguistic
ability. It is used world-wide to define pupils' language skills. CEFR has six levels which go from A1 (absolute beginner) to C2 (the
highest level of ability).

Citizen Z B2 / ESO Teaching Programme - 5- Cambridge University Press 2016


each exam strategy gradually and in depth, which allows them to develop a full,
rigorous view of the linguistic characteristics of English by using the four skills.

The fact that the teaching approach focuses on getting ready for the First Certificate in
English exam guarantees the learning, revision and consolidation of different facets of
spoken and written language with specific training using specific techniques and
strategies for this type of exam. This method provides teachers with the material they
need to help and direct pupils to obtain a consolidated intermediate level in line with
terms established by CEFR. Common European Framework of Reference for
Languages). One of the objectives is to contribute to the development of pupils'
language skills in general and broaden their knowledge about the English language,
always taking into account the characteristics of the First Certificate in English exam
model. In order to do this in a dynamic, attractive way, subjects of real interest are
used, connected with the pupils' surroundings by using different, interesting strategies,
activities and approaches.

Thanks to the method's methodological guidance, pupils will study the curricular
contents in a simple, effective and gradual way, following a clear structure and a variety
of activities which will consolidate practical as well as theoretical knowledge. The four
skill are developed in this method in such as way that pupils can understand and
assimilate contents not only to study for First Certificate in English but also to use
English in a practical way in real situations.

The method's most important facets include:

Clearly presenting objectives.


Attractive, motivating themes for pupils.
Practical, easy-to-use material.
Attention to diversity in the classroom.
Integration of skills in a natural, practical way.
Orientation towards pupils' autonomy in the learning process.
Practical, necessary suggestions and advice for focusing on knowledge
in a brief, concise way.
A deductive approach to grammar which helps pupils to think about it
and consolidate concepts studied in previous courses.
This method motivates, integrates and offers challenges.
It places pupils in real Cambridge exam situations.
It provides pupils with real life situations in stories about pupils of the
same age.
It offers provides teachers and pupils with many opportunities to
personalise their work sessions.

Citizen Z consists of an initial Welcome unit and 12 short units, dealing with a widest
range of topics for adolescents than is offered by other books. There is also a cultural
lesson after every other unit, and these encourage pupils to learn more about the world
around them. After every other unit there is a revision section for revising and
consolidating the contents of the previous two units by practising key language and
skills.

Citizen Z introduces new concepts in the English language in a natural, gradual way
and is based on the idea of continuity, giving what is learned a practical application and
a view to the future which allows pupils to see the importance of English as a second

Citizen Z B2 / ESO Teaching Programme - 6- Cambridge University Press 2016


language. But it aims to do more than just consolidate concepts which have already be
learned and present new facets of the English language: it also shows pupils the need
to learn the language in order to be able to use it in the future in professional and
personal contexts.

This method's objectives are to cover pupils' real, objective needs in terms of Common
European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) parameters. The aim is to
stimulate continual, practical learning which will be useful to the pupils and enable them
to take the Cambridge First Certificate in English. This exam recognised
internationally in both academic and professional circles confirms practical
knowledge of English at a medium level. To be able to take this exam successfully,
candidates must show that they can start communication using appropriate vocabulary;
that they can defend a point of view; that they are able to use different styles of
communication, depending on each situation; that they are aware of the linguistic
conventions of the English language; and that they can distinguish between different
registers.

When studying for First Certificate in English , pupils are required to learn, revise and
consolidate different facets of oral and written language, as well as receiving training
about specific techniques for the type of exam they are going to sit. When used in
Secondary Education, Citizen Z guarantees ideal training for a real, functional and
practical basic level, helping and orientating Spanish pupils to develop language
abilities in general and increase their knowledge of English.

As well as preparing pupils to take First Certificate in English, Citizen Z also


teaches the material required when learning English in Secondary Education. This is
done by integrating the contents and objectives at each stage, in this way teaching
pupils with a double objective.

1.2 What does Citizen Z offer?

The materials in Citizen Z have been put together with the attitude that the pupils are
not mere language learners. The pupils are taken to be, at all times, explorers who are
investigating every facet of the process of learning.

Citizen Z is a method for teaching English which is eminently practical and is based on
two basic approaches in terms of method:

1. The communicative approach enables Secondary Education pupils to integrate


skills in a natural, progressive way.

2. Preparing for First Certificate in English.

To this end, the subjects have been painstakingly chosen, with a deductive approach to
linguistic questions, a variety of strategies and the method's uniform structure. During
the preparation of the method, the pupils' age and interests were taken into account, as
can be seen in the choice of texts, pictures and design, the type of activities, tactics for
enabling, improving and expanding study techniques, etc.

The objective of the texts is to develop linguistic ability in English as much as possible,
taking into account the diversity of the pupils' interests, their different rhythms of
learning and different aptitudes and expectations. To do this, the right choice of
contents and the organisation of learning has been fundamental in order to obtain the

Citizen Z B2 / ESO Teaching Programme - 7- Cambridge University Press 2016


most possible from the three class-hours of English each week. Furthermore, an
atmosphere for positive learning must be encouraged between teacher and pupils.
Citizen Z offers a clear, simple method with appropriate, varied contents, analysed
using interesting sources which encourage a balance between learning and
entertainment, taking differences between pupils into account.

The creation of a positive atmosphere for learning depends to a large degree on the
understanding between the teacher and the pupils, as well as the relationships that
pupils have with one another. The teacher must listen with empathy and genuine
interest and have certain psychological skills. Citizen Z makes it easy for the teacher to
create a positive learning experience using clearly defined tasks, a great number of
carefully designed exercises, opportunities for pupils to check their own work on a
regular basis, and a teaching process designed to guarantee that pupils learn to
express themselves both orally and in writing.

Citizen Z offers a greater number of productive activities with which pupils can develop
their competences with written and oral expression (speaking and writing
competences), as the same time as they continue developing their oral and reading
comprehension (reading and listening competences).

The teacher becomes a guide and facilitator for learning during work in pairs, groups
and role plays. This type of communication activities give pupils the chance to work
independently, without the teacher. During this type of activities, the teacher stays to
one side and only supervises and intervenes as necessary.

Citizen Z also pays special attention to cultural, linguistic and ethnic diversity at schools
in our country because of its importance and influence on learning English.

The method's characteristics are:

1. A focus on specific aims and progress: pupils know clearly what they can
do and how they should do it.

2. Language acquisition is genuine and significant. It is a matter of pupils


gradually acquiring mechanisms for learning and the necessary strategies
for becoming confident in English. To do this, current issues which are
closely connected with their interests have been selected. English is
practised in real contexts in the most natural, realistic was possible.

3. The learning process isdynamic and responsible. Throughout the course


pupils must learn and use different cognitive strategies which allow them to
be independent and reinforce and strengthen their skills. So they have to
deduce, connect, put in sequence and be aware of their mistakes and those
of their classmates.

With regards to how to use Citizen Z, we would like to underline the direct focus of
each unit, enabling pupils to make use of reason and then gradually use more specific
techniques, exercises and tasks. Skills, like contents, are dealt with from various
angles so that pupils can distinguish between different approaches to learning in a
dynamic way which they find interesting. The units are ordered in such as way that the
degree of difficulty increases until each structure, skill or competence is mastered. So
if, for example, the contents of a particular unit are grammatical, they are dealt with in
sequence, starting with the most basic facets, deducing how they are used by actually

Citizen Z B2 / ESO Teaching Programme - 8- Cambridge University Press 2016


using them, and using different activities which finally lead to the focus which the exam
places on these contents. The same is true for skill and the different techniques used.
In fact, Citizen Z offers sequential, deductive comprehension of the different facets of
English, continually involving pupils and making them responsible for their own
learning.

This course has been specifically drawn up for Spanish pupils, paying special
attention to the linguistic considerations where there is greatest interference with
their mother tongue, as well as frequent mistakes made by Spanish-speaking
candidates in the First Certificate in English. To this end, strategies for oral and written
production are gradually introduced in sequence. The method also allows an approach
which helps to avoid mistakes and, in this way, obtain the most positive result in both
academic and functional terms.

1.3 Course Components

Citizen Z includes a Student's Book, a Workbook with downloadable recordings) and a


Teachers Book with Teachers Resources online and a DVD CD.

The Pupil's Book has 160 full colour pages and is divided into 12 main units, each one
having 10 pages. At the end of every other unit there is a lesson about social skills or a
culture and literature page and after every two units there is a revision section.

There are also four videos with stories about adolescents which are included in the
Teacher's Book and on cards that go with them and which pupils can access online.

At the end of the Pupil's Book there is a section titled Extra materials with practise for
the First Certificate in English, pronunciation activities, various pages of grammar
reference (grammar reference) in which all the grammar in the Students Book is
revised, offering key exercises for grammar revision as well as small, attractive
grammar tables, which can be used in class or individually; and, lastly, a section titled
speaking activities with situations for practising in pairs.

The Activities Book with recordings has 128 pages to offer pupils more practice of
new vocabulary and grammar from the Students book and to enable pupils to work
thoroughly on developing all their skills. It can be used in class and at home. The
recordings which come with the book are MP3s in downloadable files available at
www.cambridge.org/elt/citizenz.
The Digital Students Book & Workbook includes 300 interactive activities as well
the photo-stories' recordings and videos.

The Teacher's Book includes:

Teaching notes for the Pupil's Book's 12 units including:

- each unit's objectives, which are shown in the Learning outcome at the start.
- Step-by-step notes for each activity

Citizen Z B2 / ESO Teaching Programme - 9- Cambridge University Press 2016


- Information about the exam tasks which are clearly referenced and what is
tested in the exam.
- A wide range of ideas for reinforcement activities with sections titled Mixed
ability, Optional extension for broadening knowledge, Fast finishers for
continuity, in this way taking the diversity of the activities in the Pupil's Book
into account.
- Sections of Background information which provide the teacher with more
extensive information about a cultural lesson or about the subject dealt with
in each unit.
- The solutions for the activities.
- Transcriptions of the recordings as well as underlined texts with keys to the
oral comprehension activities.

Dictated notes for the oral expression section (Language note).


Citizen Z also provides printable material for teachers such as literature
photocopies, grammar presentations, photocopies for videos, lists of
bilingual words.

The Test Generator enables teachers to create their own evaluation material
depending on the pupils' needs. They can choose specific activities in order to
evaluate vocabulary and grammar at any point of the course, teachers being
able to create specific or cumulative tests immediately. Tests with two levels of
difficulty are available: Standard and Extension. The Test Generator also
creates tests which have already been prepared about the contents of each unit
and each term and final tests, including mock Cambridge English Exams.

The class audio CDs have all the listening material needed for the Students book and
the Workbook.

2 OBJECTIVES

3 COMPETENCES

3.1 Introduction

In line with European Parliament Recommendation 2006/962/EC about key


competences for continual learning, the Royal Decree4 which sets the basic curriculum
for Secondary Education is based on promoting learning by competences integrated in
the curriculum areas.

These competences are taken to be "know-how" in the context of any academic, social
or professional context. Learning using competences encourages learning and
motivates learning as overall procedures for learning about each subject are acquired.

Pupils have to develop basic competences throughout their compulsory education, in


both primary and secondary levels. These competences help them to fulfil their
potential, to become active citizens, become successful in their adult lives and enable
them to enjoying continual learning.

Each and every part of the syllabus encourages the acquisition and development of
these competences. Because of this, working on certain areas makes it possible to
reach these objectives. They are not limited to particular subjects or levels. Some of
the indispensable factors for achieving success include: the way in which centres are
organised and managed; the style of teaching; the way in which key parts and players
in the educational community interact; the availability of extra-curricular and
complementary activities.

LOMCE uses the definitions of key competences established by the European Union5.

LC - Linguistic Communication.
MSCT - Mathematical competence and basic science and technology
competences.
DC - Digital competences
LL - Learning to Learn
SCC - Social and Civic Competences.
SIE - Sense of Initiative and Entrepreneurship
CCE - Cultural Conscience and Expressions

The relation between contents, competences and evaluation criteria are described in
Order ECD/65/2015.

Citizen Z complies with the laws and instructions given by the authorities with
regards to education. The general approach is based on the acquisition of
practical knowledge. The objective is to enable pupils to develop thanks to
continual learning.

(2006/962/CE)

The great variety of activities included in Citizen Z help to integrate the learning of a
foreign language with other parts of the syllabus. The programme is also designed to
help with the overall development of the seven competences.

3.2 Citizen Z's contribution to acquiring Competences

Learning a foreign language leads to acquiring basic competences in the same way
that studying other subjects does. This acquisition process is equally intense
throughout the different levels which make up the education system which pupils follow.

Citizen Z contributes efficiently and systematically to acquiring each of the


competences and does so within a communicative framework which guarantees that
pupils become competent in English. This communicative approach is followed
throughout the six levels in primary education.

Citizen Z's teaching objectives and the choice of contents have been selected in order
to guarantee the development and acquisition of these basic competences.

Linguistic communication is based on the use of English as the vehicular language


for oral and written communication.

Developing this competence by studying a foreign language leads to pupils improving


their competences to express themselves orally and in writing. They develop this
competence by using the appropriate linguistic register and discourse in each situation
that they find themselves in.

Pupils' linguistic competences improve as they recognise and gradually master the
rules in the foreign language. To ask for help, they can use their own language and
reflect on the process of learning the new language.

The activities in Citizen Z allow pupils to acquire and develop the four competences
(oral comprehension, written comprehension, oral expression and written expression),
continually reinforcing the language with the underlying grammatical rules for learning
English.

Mathematical competence is connected with the ability to reason. This involves


making judgements and reaching conclusions by solving problems and using logic in a
coherent manner. It is also important to use mathematical concepts in everyday life.

In order to acquire this competence, pupils must know and use the numerical system
and its symbols. They must be familiar with different ways of expressing and finding
solutions in numerical terms, while linguistic competences enable them to reason,
develop explanations, form hypotheses and make use of deductive and inductive
arguments, etc.

The activities in Citizen Z are often connected with mathematical processes. Pupils are
presented with tasks involving reasoning and logic, including mathematical tasks, both
orally and in writing. In this way the course helps them to develop and improve this
competence.

Basic competences in science and technology involve being able to understand


events and phenomena. This involves making predictions based on what has been

Citizen Z B2 / ESO Teaching Programme - 13- Cambridge University Press 2016


heard or read about in connection with dietary habits, health and the environment, and
being responsible consumers in daily life.

Citizen Z offers a wide range of oral and written texts with clear, detailed contents
about these subjects, in this way encouraging pupils to understand events and
phenomena and predict their consequences. Pupils improve their competences in
English at the same time as they acquire this knowledge.

To be able to deal with this information and acquire digital competences pupils must
know how to read, analyse and transmit the information they extract from all
types of texts in English. They must be able to choose and organise the
information which they hear and read. At the same time, this competence is
directly connected with the integration of multimedia resources in the learning
process.

Using interactive activities online (Online Workbook) material, Citizen Z helps pupils to
make better use of digital technology. There are also texts in which the handling of
information plays a crucial role, without this undermining other competences.

Learning to learn concentrates pupils' attention on what is expected of them in order


to learn English. Memory and self-evaluation competences are also dealt with. Both of
these competences are needed in all learning processes in which pupils form
hypotheses about language, using the wide variety of examples from real life which are
introduced in the text.

Citizen Z challenges pupils to get involved in an active way in the learning process
when dealing with linguistic contents. Linguistic roles are taught in a subtle way so that
pupils make their own deductions and hypotheses in a natural way, basing themselves
on the principles of "universal grammar" which are intrinsic to acquiring a language.

Additionally, there is a specific lesson every four units to revise what has been learned,
the course includes a continual process of self-evaluation, which also reinforces the
basic competence of Learning to Learn. Throughout the learning process, Citizen Z
continually encourages pupils to take part in cooperative learning, another pillar for
learning to learn and, in this way, English becomes an tool for thinking about,
interpreting and representing reality.

Social and civic competences consists of discovering and becoming familiar with the
different social and cultural bases which underlie English. Likewise, respect and other
values are reinforced by pair and group work.

Citizen Z teaches about cultural values - always taught in English - not only from
British society and customs but also from other English-speaking countries such as
Australia and the States. Respect and values are encouraged in a society which is
continually evolving, in which cultural diversity stands out as one of the principles for
the 21st Century. The contents of Citizen Z complement work carried out in the
education system to reinforce these values and, in this way, helps pupils to acquire
social and civic competences.

Sense of initiative and entrepreneurial spirit means being able to approach the
learning process in an autonomous way or, otherwise, in cooperation with others in
order to carry out whichever task is put forward.

Citizen Z B2 / ESO Teaching Programme - 14- Cambridge University Press 2016


Citizen Z encourages pupils to study independently, praising their sense of
responsibility and self-knowledge and also stimulating creativity and imagination.
Furthermore, as evaluation is closely connected with being critical and value
judgements which can be made individually or in groups, respect, tolerance and
understanding (towards themselves and towards classmates) are also encouraged.

Pupils take part in activities which allow them to reinforce their enterprising spirit and
business sense using creativity, autonomy, initiative, team work, self-confidence and
critical awareness.

Self discovery and development are to be found behind Cultural consciousness and
expression. This competence develops the ability to understand and evaluate cultural
and artistic manifestations in a critical way. As with social and civic competences, these
competences reinforce human values.

Citizen Z's methodological approach is interactive and it is not only communication in


English which is crucial: English is also the vehicular language used to give information
about other cultures and societies and their values. This also helps teachers to make
wider educational values become effective at their centres. Throughout the course, a
wide variety of cultural and artistic themes are dealt with using different activities.

In order to encourage cultural and social competences, Citizen Z offers activities


connected with the English-speaking world in which culture and art play an important
part.

The main objective of Citizen Z is the acquisition of English and its culture. The
language is used as a tool for making coherent value judgements about anything
expressed in English either orally or in writing. Thanks to the wide range of activities
offered in Citizen Z, the acquisition of competences is guaranteed.

3.3 Competences in Citizen Z

Competences are comprehensively developed throughout the fourteen units and in


revision. They are to be found in the Teaching units development section. (See
Section 5.5).

This document specifies a series of descriptors for acquiring and evaluating each of
the competences, bearing in mind pupils of the age group's cognitive development and
competences and in connection with the characteristics of the material in this course.

The programme for each unit specifies the ACTIVITIES to be carried out and the
enable the measurement of the level of achievement of these DESCRIPTORS.

Becoming aware of the consequences of your decisions.

Each unit's programme also includes connections between the unit's CONTENTS,
EVALUATION CRITERIA AND COMPETENCES .

In the annex at the end of each document there is an EVALUATION FORM ABOUT
COMPETENCES which includes the different descriptors set for acquiring the
competences in each subject and school year.

The teacher can use this form to evaluate the competences and descriptors for each
unit or whenever appropriate throughout the school year.

3.4 Multiple Intelligences

In 1983 US psychologist Howard Gardner developed the Theory of Multiple


Intelligences 6 in which he stated that all humans have eight different types of
intelligence which we use throughout life. Each individual develops them to greater or
lesser degrees depending on their genetics and external stimuli. During the learning
process the teacher must take all of them into account in order to make sure that the
pupils can acquire knowledge using their own, personal competences.

The resources used in Citizen Z allow pupils to develop their communication


competences in a natural way; in all units the seven competences are worked on in
order for their minds to work in a complete manner. Based on these seven
competences, different types of intelligence are developed. The activities in Citizen Z
have been prepared with the objective of stimulating different types of intelligence, so
there is always something of interest for every pupil.

Linguistic intelligence, sensitivity towards the written and spoken word and the ability
to learn languages are key parts of Citizen Z and it is combined with other forms of
intelligence.

Interpersonal intelligence- efficient communication with others - is a crucial factor in


learning languages. Communication activities contribute to developing interpersonal
competences and encourage pupils to work together and carry on developing
communication strategies.

Interpersonal intelligence, understanding oneself, intimate thoughts and feelings, is


an integral part of the learning process and is developed in each unit in Citizen Z, in
this way enabling pupils to be more aware of themselves and the world around them.

Econmica) and Gardner, H. (2001): La inteligencia reformulada: the teora de the inteligencias mltiples in the siglo
XXI, (Barcelona, Paids).

Citizen Z B2 / ESO Teaching Programme - 18- Cambridge University Press 2016


Citizen Z deals with Musical intelligence in every unit, appreciation for rhythm and
music through songs, chants and raps. As Howard Gardner points out, this intelligence
works almost in parallel with linguistic intelligence.

When working with secondary education pupils it is also very important to develop the
body and mind together, which means that movement (body kinaesthetic)
intelligence, coordination and connection with the whole body, is also taken into
account.

There is a series of activities for developing logical-mathematical intelligence. These


activities help to develop logical thought and problem solving.

Spatial intelligence, expression and understanding through the visual world, is also
one of the keys to learning. Pupils are highly aware of the world around them and often
think in terms of drawings and pictures. The attractive presentation of pictures in
Citizen Z helps pupils to be more creative and stimulates their imagination.

Lastly, Naturalist intelligence, the ability to interact with the natural world around us,
is fundamental for pupils' integral learning. In Citizen Z there are many observation
activities about natural surroundings and reflections about our place in the world.

The eight multiple intelligences can be identified or associated with the competences
to a certain extent. With regards to technological information and competences,
Citizen Z comes with interactive online activities in which pupils have access to various
resources for practising what they have learned in each unit, which also helps them to
develop autonomous learning.

As well the competences, in each unit in Citizen Z different social and cultural factors
are examined, attitudes and cross-curricular subjects being looked at using various
types of activities. As part of Values education, various areas are examined
throughout the book: Moral and civic education, Health education, Peace education,
Equality education, Consumer education, Classroom collaborative work. In this way
pupils are taught to just to learn the language but also to value and respect other
cultures, which contributes to their development as human beings.

English is also connected with other syllabus areas such as mathematics, natural
sciences, social sciences, artistic education, music and technology. This is because all
the activities are designed not just to teach language but also to achieve other
objectives.

When cooperative learning or work is mentioned in this programme, it must be


understood in two ways: working in teams or small groups and cooperative work in
itself. In both cases, the teacher will organise the classroom into small groups, but
different types of methods are used. With group work, normally each group will be
assigned a task and the result or final production will be evaluated; depending on each
tasks, roles will be defined which must be distributed amongst the group members
(spokesperson, coordinator) so that each one has something to contribute. On the
other hand, cooperative work has another nuance : the participation of each member of
the groups is needed for learning to take place: the contents to be studied are given out
amongst the team members and each member is responsible for preparing what
he/she has been given and passing the knowledge on to the others; so the better an
individual works, the more others learn too and, consequently, the team will be better
prepared to do the tasks or activities it will be faced with.

4 CONTENTS

4.1 Contents blocks

The basis syllabus in Secondary Education for First Foreign Language learning is
based around four blocks of activities as set out by the Common European Framework
of Reference for Languages:

1. Comprehension of oral texts


2. Production of oral texts (expression and interaction)
3. Comprehension of written texts
4. Production of written texts (expression and interaction)

These four main blocks are the basis for the evaluation criteria and gradable learning
standards as well as the syllabus contents, in other words all the knowledge, abilities,
competences and attitudes which contribute to reaching the objectives and acquiring
competences.

This didactic programme's contents for ESO are as follows:

Block 1. Comprehension of oral texts

1. Comprehension strategies
- Previous presentation of information about the task and subject
- Text identification and its comprehension.
- Distinguishing types of comprehension (gist, essential information).
- Making hypotheses about contents and context.
- Inference and making hypotheses about meaning using comprehension of the main
points, both linguistic and paralinguistic.
- Revising hypothesis using newly understood points.

2. Socio-cultural and socio-linguistic considerations: social conventions, rules and


types of social norms, habits, values, beliefs and attitudes; non-verbal language.
Respecting classmates' opinions.
Respecting and complying with classroom rules.
Respecting habits, values and beliefs other than your own.

4.2 Minimum contents

When evaluating, it is essential to establish minimum contents. These contents will be


a point of reference for the teacher and pupils when evaluating their progress in the
process of learning and be the basis for different types of evaluation. Mastering these
contents, which are backed up by different evaluation tools, confirms pupils' progress
and explains their positive results (at the end of the academic year or at the end of the
evaluation).

(See Section 4.1, Content blocks, in this teaching programme)

5 LEARNING STANDARDS AND RESULTS

In order to grade the performance or achievement of each pupil during Secondary


Education the syllabus sets criteria for evaluation. These specifications are called
learning standards and enable definition of the results of learning and are based on
what pupils should know and know what to do in each subject.

Learning standards must be observable, measurable and possible to evaluate and,


along with evaluation criteria, must be used to evaluate competences and objectives in
continual evaluations and at the end of each subject. Because of this, syllabus learning
standards are set for this cycle of Compulsory Secondary Education.

As can be seen in the way learning standards are phrased, The pupils are closely
connected with the development of linguistic competence, in such as way that to check
the specific standard of achievement or degree of realisation of objectives during each
school year, the following list of the descriptors of competences can be used.

The connection between evaluation standards and competences is this subject


and phase is set as follows for this programme:

6 EVALUATION

6.1 Presentation

The process of teaching and learning is incomplete if the process in itself is not valued
and the results are not measured. Assessment is necessary in order to check to what
extent the foreseen objectives have been achieved and, consequently, adapt the
educational process to pupils' needs and characteristics. Assessment must provide
information about what pupils have learned and how they have learned it. Thanks to
evaluation, we can determine what help each pupil needs in order to guarantee
progress.

Although all components of educational systems must be evaluated and can be


improved, at present we will assume that the main objective of evaluation is pupils'
academic progress.

As well as considering the progress of the group as a whole, it is indispensable to


follow individual pupil's progress taking into account different forms and rhythms of
learning in order to know exactly what teaching intervention each pupil needs.

Clearly, evaluation is usually carried out by the teacher. However, bearing in mind the
fact that our approach aims to involve pupils in their own learning, it is reasonable that

Citizen Z B2 / ESO Teaching Programme - 37- Cambridge University Press 2016


they, too, should be involved in the evaluation process. What the pupils say about how
they see their own learning must be taken into account: the difficulties they find in the
process and, especially, their tastes and preferences with regards to how to learn
English.

Assessment is needed throughout the stages of learning:

At the beginning of the process, the starting point must be evaluated (what
pupils already know, what they do not and what they know imperfectly). This
evaluation allows us to anticipate problems and adapt the teaching programme.
This can be done at the start of the academic year, the term or even at the start
of each unit.

During the process, evaluation helps the teacher to take decisions about areas
where more work is needed, about extending, removing or reinforcing contents
about whether the programme should be altered in any way.

At the end of each educational stage, evaluation allows the teacher to see if
the results of the teaching-learning process match the objectives.

Assessment must consist of a diverse combination of tools which provide objective,


quantitative data in order to give information about the process and make it possible to
assess each pupil. Tools or assessment strategies include observation in class,
correctly monitoring parameters (tasks being carried out or not, greater or lesser
participation, greater or lesser interest in learning), written tests (with questions in
different formats: singular answers, short answers, multiple choice, association of ideas
or concepts), oral interaction, with the teacher or between pupils, and taking part in
team work and/or cooperative work and their results. Once more, the objective is to
have carefully collected data which gives a precise record of progress made with
learning and possible difficulties.

In all cases, the most important thing is to always choose the tool which gives the most
information about the teaching-learning process we want to find out about and deal
with.

6.2 Assessment criteria

Assessment criteria can be defined as reference norms which establish the type of
learning and also the extent to which each pupil can be expected to acquire knowledge
and competence.

These criteria allow us to establish and evaluate pupils' progress appropriately, both
individually and a group. The materials in Citizen Z are in line with the following
evaluation criteria and legislation about Compulsory Secondary Education: 7

Block 1. Comprehension of oral texts

register, in which pupils exchange information, ideas and opinions, explain in a
simple yet effective way the motives behind their activities and plans, and pupils
form hypotheses, although they sometimes doubt about which expressions to
use, pause to rephrase and organise what they are saying and may need to
repeat what they have said in order to help the person listening to them with
some details.

those listening may require repetitions if the words and structures used are not
common; there may be mistakes although these do not interrupt
communication.

comprehensible when short or medium-length, although there may be pauses,
occasional doubts and rephrasing of the ideas to be expressed in less usual
situations or with longer messages.

- Interact in a simple yet effective way in clearly structured interactions, using


common formulae or instructions for speaking or letting other people speak,
although the other person's help may be needed.

commonly-used more specific abbreviations and symbols eg. &, ), and their
linked meanings.

Block 4. Production of written texts

- Writing, on paper or electronic format, short or medium-length texts which are


coherent and well-structured about subjects of personal interest, or daily or less

common features of these functions and common discursive models for starting
and finishing the text written appropriately, organising the information clearly,
enlarging it with examples or summarising it.

- Show good control although influenced to an extent by first or other


languages of a wide repertoire of common syntactic structures, and select the
right features for textual coherence and cohesion for organising the discourse in

Citizen Z B2 / ESO Teaching Programme - 41- Cambridge University Press 2016


- Learn about and use common written vocabulary connected with daily matters
and a general subjects or connected with their own interests, studies and jobs,
and a limited repertoire of frequently used expressions and modisms.

- Use spelling and punctuation conventions and more frequent formats in a


reasonably correct way so that the message is understood, although there may
be some influence from first or other languages; knowing how to make use of
the basic resources for processing texts in order to correct spelling mistakes in
electronic format, and adapt to common conventions about writing on the
Internet (eg. abbreviations and others in chats).

As we stated in the previous section, both evaluation criteria and their application -
learning standards - must be items in terms of objective achievement and each stage's
competences.

Furthermore, for specific evaluation of the degree of achievement in terms of these


criteria in ESO, the teacher may use the descriptors listed in section 3 (Competences)
and 5 (Learning Standards) and in this programme's Didactic Units Development.

6.3 Assessment in Citizen Z

It is best to use continual evaluation with pupils of this age, following their progress in
the classroom and using the information obtained while teaching. Continual evaluation
is based on the teacher following the pupils' progress and using the knowledge
acquired in that way to direct them, which makes the pupils' role even more active: they
learn the guidelines which the teacher gives them and also their own following of them.

Pupils neither develop at the same rate nor learn in the same way, so each pupil must
be evaluated individually and not compared with classmates. The objective must be
based on each pupil's progress and development.

As well as their progress in English, pupils' social and emotional development must be
evaluated and observed. The teacher must praise pupils' progress and work in pairs
and as a group as well as giving them instructions about how to make progress with
their English.

The following evaluation criteria are in line with legal requirements and the teaching
materials offering in Citizen Z and are taken to be important, necessary areas for
evaluation.

1. Oral comprehension. The aim is to check pupils' ability to understand the gist of
short oral messages, given in ideal communication conditions, in other words,
direct communication situations with helpful contexts.

2. Understanding specific messages. The aim is to check the ability to understand


not only the gist but also specific details, which have been previously pointed out,
from simple oral and written texts which are familiar to the pupils, although they
may not fully understand some other parts of the message.

3. Producing messages. The teacher evaluates pupils' ability to express themselves


orally in everyday situations. The comprehensibility of the message is particularly

Citizen Z B2 / ESO Teaching Programme - 42- Cambridge University Press 2016


evaluated, excusing possible pronunciation mistakes which do not affect
understanding.

4. Pronunciation. The aim is to check have assimilated the English phonetic system:
its phonemes' rhythm and intonations, whether they can use it in comprehension
and for producing simple messages in already familiar contexts.

5. Assimilation of new vocabulary. With this criteria the aim is to evaluate the ability
to understand and use vocabulary appropriately and expressions which have been
learned. Vocabulary assimilation is always checked in situations with a context and
close the pupils' own experience.

6. Class participation. Observe how pupils behave to assess whether they


participate in a constructive form in class communication situations, respecting the
rules for the exchange of information.

7. Collaborative work. This, too, is evaluated by observing pupils' behaviour, seeing


whether they take part in a constructive way in group activities, collaborating in a
harmonious learning process in the classroom.

8. Individual work. By observing pupils' behaviour, their individual work is evaluated


with regards to correct contents, care taken with presentations and timely
completion of tasks.

9. Interest in learning. The aim is to check that pupils are interested in advancing in
their learning and curious to learn new things, if they pay attention in class, ask
questions and ask about their doubts.

10. Respect for others. There is an evaluation of whether pupils respect their
classmates and teachers, listen to them without interrupting them, respecting turns
to speak and appreciating others' ideas and opinions.

11. Interest in finding out about other cultures. There is an evaluation of whether
pupils are interested in finding out about culture in English-speaking countries, if
they pay attention when such subjects are talked about and if they ask questions in
order to widen their knowledge.

12. Using polite forms. The aim is to observe in order to check that pupils use the
polite forms in English that they learn and include them in normal class routine.

In order to have an overall appreciation of the whole of the class, the teacher may draw
up a double-entry table with a vertical list of the pupils and, horizontally, the numbers
for evaluation criteria. By marking the boxes using a colour code which shows to what
extent objectives have been achieved (for example, green for good, blue for
acceptable, red for insufficient), the group's progress can be seen at a simple glance.

Discipline also forms part of any good evaluation. By channelling pupils' innate energy
in the right direction, the teacher can avoid rebelliousness and discipline problems.
Many problems of this type arise when pupils get bored, when the level is beneath
them or when activities are too repetitive. Citizen Z has been designed to take into
account the very diverse needs and desires of different pupils and, thanks to this, it
includes a wide variety of activities for them to enjoy.

Citizen Z B2 / ESO Teaching Programme - 43- Cambridge University Press 2016


However, it is important for the teacher to mark the rules with regards to discipline in
the classroom, making sure that pupils know what is and what is not acceptable, and
treating all pupils alike. If clear, fair discipline parameters are established, a 'safe'
atmosphere will be created in the classroom and pupils will study freely and with
confidence.

In order to keep the interest of the smallest pupils, the teacher must find a balance
between their limitless energy and short span of concentration in order to avoid
boredom, restlessness and lack of motivation, things which lead to discipline problems.

6.4 Assessment tools in Citizen Z

The Test Generator enables teachers to create their own evaluation material
depending on the pupils' needs. They can choose specific activities in order to evaluate
vocabulary and grammar at any point of the course, teachers being able to create
specific or cumulative tests immediately. Tests with two levels of difficulty are available:
Standard and Extension. The Test Generator also creates tests which have already
been prepared about the contents of each unit and each term and final tests, including
mock Cambridge English Exams.

Every two units in the Pupil's Book there is a section called Get it right! which includes
three types of activities: additional vocabulary and grammar practice with specific
activities to support learning in areas of greater difficulty for pupils and where most
mistakes are made (Corpus challenge) and a pronunciation section: Say it right!

Every two units in the Pupil's Book there is also a self-assessment section called Test
Yourself for pupils to revise the vocabulary, grammar and functional language concepts
which they need to reinforce.

In the annex at the end of this document there is a COMPETENCES EVALUATION


FORM, broken into different descriptors, which the teacher may use at the end of each
unit, each quarter or whenever appropriate throughout the school year.

6.5. Qualification criteria

As mentioned in point 6.1, one of the objectives of assessment is to specify how much
each pupil has learned. This information will be used to take important decisions, so
the parameters used to fix them and communicate them will be used for taking
important decisions. In other words, the teacher and the pupils will know where their
weak points are and, consequently, which area or areas of knowledge they should
focus on.

In order to proceed as explained in the previous paragraph, the best thing is to assess
unit by unit, making use of the contents specifications in point 8. To do this, we include
reference values table using percentage values to make them easily understood. The
idea is not to fill in a table like this for each pupil but, when giving marks, teachers
should take into account the importance of different things studied, how much they
count towards final marks and, as appropriate, shortcomings and reinforcement tasks.

This approximation makes it easier, to a large extent, to make the adjustments required
for pupils with special needs (see point 7). Let us take a pupil with hearing problems:
obviously, the percentages for blocks 1 and 2 can be reduced, as can those for
pronunciation, and they can be assigned to the other blocks.

Marks can also be altered depending on what we call correction factors, affecting final
marks by 5-10%. These factors are:
- Intention to communicate in English.
- Motivation for learning English.
- Personal work: effort, persistence

It is also the case that any dishonest attitude (eg. copying in written tests or stealing
other people's work) will lead to losing all points from that teaching unit or all the units
taught until then during the term.

7 EDUCATIONAL NEEDS

7.1. Introduction to the concept of attention to diversity.

Educating means doing everything possible for all the pupils to obtain maximum
personal, intellectual, social and emotional development and, of course, for them to
achieve the objectives set by the curriculum. This means taking great care with
attention to diversity with regards to pupils. Obviously, each person is different, but
we know that the pupils who need greatest attention in terms of educational adjustment
are those who need specific educational help, and they fall into the following
categories:

a) pupils with special educational needs dues to an inability or serious behaviour


disorders;

b) pupils with high intellectual capacity;

c) pupils who have joined our educational system late;

d) pupils with specific learning difficulties;

e) pupils with special educational needs due to personal conditions or school history.

Citizen Z B2 / ESO Teaching Programme - 45- Cambridge University Press 2016


Except for the group who have joined late, and because learning English is a principle
independent from the educational system, the rest of the pupils will, as we say, need
adjustments to deal with their individual characteristics. We will deal briefly with each
profile (taking into account the fact that the educational approach for pupils with more
than one problem will be more complex).

Pupils with educational needs due to disabilities or serious behaviour disorders.

Their disability may be physical (sensory or movement), intellectual or


connected with language disability. In the first case, the most usual problems
are significant sight, hearing or movement problems. This disability will lead to
pupils having greater or lesser difficulties with certain linguistic abilities (eg.,
listening for hypo acoustic children). So, in the first place, the teacher must
modify the objectives and, secondly, use methodical means to access the
curriculum, which will vary depending on each disability. In other words, modify
the learning process for each pupil's particular characteristics (to continue with
the same example, emphasising visual access, taking into account the pupil's
hearing problems), giving more emphasis to activities, materials, resources, etc,
which support the learning process.

For pupils with intellectual disability and language disorder (in terms of
expression and/or comprehension), the teacher faces a completely different
problem as, in general, pupils will need a highly adapted version of the
curriculum in terms of objectives and contents, and assessment in similar terms.
Specifically for pupils with language disorder, bearing in mind that they already
have problems with their mother tongue, it is easy to imagine that learning a
second (or third) language will not be easy for them. For all of these pupils,
decisions about their academic course must be slowly taken, in coordination
with the Orientation Department, as some of them may well not achieve the
objectives set in terms of competences in each stage.

Behaviour disorder is usually, though not always, related to attention deficit


hyperactivity disorder. In all cases, the teacher must use standard measures to
deal with these pupils' difficulties. Briefly, we should mention: balancing the right
class routine with new, motivating teaching approaches, positioning pupils
carefully, reinforcing success, valuing effort more than results (taking care of
self-esteem and motivation), modifying assessment tools, etc. If there is no
maladjustment, these objectives should not be modified. If there is a
discrepancy, the possibility of adapting the syllabus may be taken into account,
always bearing in mind the competences which have to be acquired in order to
go forward or obtain qualifications.

Pupils with high intellectual capacity.

These pupils' main problem is usually lack of motivation, the result of having to
perform learning activities which they are already beyond. It is the teacher's job
to use appropriate teaching strategies (eg. get them to lead team work or ask
them to take part in some explanations as pupil-helpers) and offer activities
which are a challenge for them (activities to widen their knowledge or increase
it, voluntary or otherwise).

Pupils with specific learning difficulties.

Citizen Z B2 / ESO Teaching Programme - 46- Cambridge University Press 2016


When learning a language, learning disorders due to reading difficulties should
be taken into account (eg. dyslexia) or problems writing. In either case, the
teacher must find out exactly what the difficulties are and, as above, adapt the
syllabus and methods for improving the teaching-learning process.

Pupils with special education needs due to personal conditions or school


history.

This group has only recently been specified in legal terms and can be
interpreted in different ways. The Department of Orientation must determine
which pupils are to be included in the group (eg. pupils with epilepsy which
obstructs their learning) and decide how to deal with this educationally.

7.2. Attention to diversity in Citizen Z

Bearing in mind this range of possibilities, it should be said that Citizen Z pays
attention to diversity in its programme, structure and contents. As we have
mentioned earlier, the Citizen Z programme is flexible. It offers specific points and
general suggestions to help teachers to adapt the programme to their own context: the
centre, their classroom and each pupil.

The contents of Citizen Z, which have been carefully chosen, are attractively
presented in a stimulating way in order to deal with diversity. The course has a cyclical
structure which allows pupils to widen their knowledge starting from what they already
know and acquire more knowledge about cultural issues and new, more complex
linguistic subjects. At the same time, the complex evaluation process includes general
criteria which must be prepared and adapted for each group, setting specific objectives
depending on the context of each centre, teacher and class. Teachers have different
tools of evaluation and competences as well as specific tasks. It is also necessary to
set minimum contents according to the needs, abilities and rhythm at which the pupils
learn.

In fact, in able to address educational needs successfully attention must be paid to


the activities, materials and resources which Citizen Z offers. The great majority of
them can be used in a personalised way and are open so that each pupil can reply in a
different way depending on his/her ability.

The Activities Book concentrates of each unit's key contents. These activities can be
used both with pupils who need extra help and with more able pupils who finish the
initial task early. Each pupil will need a different amount of time which will depend, to a
greater or lesser extent, on his/her motivation. Most of the activities are designed for
use in the classroom, but they can also be given as homework. As can be seen on the
table further on, the same material and/or resources can be used to reinforce the class
or widen knowledge; in other words, the objective can be changes as fits. For example,
a simple question about a text can be reinforcement for less advanced pupils and can
also serve as inspiration in an extension activity in which pupils are asked to say other
words in the same semantic area.

The teacher should take advantage of pupils' abilities in every way that arises. One
pupil may hate speaking but enjoying writing vocabulary on the board, while another
may be good at drawing or making posters.

Citizen Z B2 / ESO Teaching Programme - 47- Cambridge University Press 2016


Another crucial factor is the methodology used by the teacher with his/her own group
and, more specifically, with pupils with learning difficulties. The most important thing
with all types of task is to make sure that they have been correctly prepared
beforehand, pupils knowing all the words they are going to need and understanding the
activity's objectives. If pupils are given the right linguistic tools in order to carry out the
activity successfully, it is almost certain that they will find it sufficiently demanding and
interesting. Without the necessary preparation, pupils may have an experience of
negative learning, which will lead to them losing confidence and feeling frustrated with
an activity which demands a degree of competence which they do not have.

As said above, assessment and stimulation are essential for pupils, and even more so
for those with special needs. When doing an activity, you must guide them towards
finding the right answers rather than giving them to them. This will lead to pupils feeling
satisfied when they find the right answer. Whenever a pupil makes a mistake, you must
emphasise that making mistakes is part of the learning process and that they should
not be ashamed of making mistakes.

The extra activities in each lesson (optional extension, mixed ability y fast finisher) can
be used whenever the teacher feels that the pupils need to practise particular
vocabulary. The same activities can be used to extend more advanced pupils'
knowledge, although, in some cases, it may be necessary to change the instructions a
little; or adapt them for different levels, depending on each class.

It should not be forgotten that continual revision is another important part of the
learning process and that it is particularly helpful for pupils with special needs, as well
as for the rest of the group. Citizen Z is based on a system of continual revision, with
different games and techniques for revising the vocabulary learned in each unit and
