3. Recomendaciones previas

This course has been specifically designed for future infant and early stages primary teachers of English, who will be working either in an EFL context or within a bilingual project, where the English language is used in a natural way to ensure that children are learning to cope with chunks of language while they are developing a knowledge and understanding of the world around them.

4. Objetivo de la asignatura

By the end of the course students will be able to:

  • Plan lessons and organize, carry out and assess project work through a curriculum which considers the physical, cognitive, social, emotional and cultural development of each individual in the context in which the child lives (the school and his/her environment).
  • Work through a topic-based approach that can support children’s acquisition of language and the development of number, literacy and science skills.
  • Can weave into the overall planning of a topic web at each year of the infant cycle the four strands (social skills, literacy development, maths and understanding of the world).
  • Apply both informal assessment and reports to parents based on “can do” statements, together with more formal assessment based on attainment targets by the end of the infant cycle.

7. Metodologías

This course is designed to be taught through face-to-face theoretical sessions that serve as introductory basis to the topics presented in the contents section, so that students are able to work in a collaborative dynamic afterwards. The teacher will provide the students with the theoretical notions in these sessions, and they will be divided in groups to apply the acquired knowledge to the design of a lesson plan that will be handed as final written product and orally presented at the end of the subject.

At the end, they will be asked to individually design a set of activities for a session within a context (age, topic, level…) given by the teacher.

Throughout the course, students will be provided with reading materials, recordings, videos and case  studies to become familiar  with the contents discussed  in each thematic unit. Ongoing self-study of the lesson contents and English language will be encouraged by the teacher who will support students online during the entire course.
