Would you like your students to be more involved in class? Oxford Discover uses inquiry-based learning to tap into students' natural curiosity. This approach enables them to ask their own questions, find their own answers and explore the world around them.
How are seasons different? Why do we need plants? What do different cultures give to the world?
Every pair of units starts with a Big Question like these. Each one is linked to a school subject – social studies, art, science, math, or music.
A big picture and video introduce the topic and the Big Question. Students then answer supporting questions that encourage them to think about the topic and the Big Question more deeply. Next, a Big Question Chart asks students to assess what they know and what they want to know.
As students continue, they discover many answers to the Big Question. They read authentic fiction and nonfiction texts that offer different views on the topic. Summative projects let students gather together what they have learned and present it in a creative way. Finally, students write what they have learned on the Big Question Chart.
A controlled vocabulary and grammar syllabus gives students the language support they need to explore and discuss each topic and Big Question. Oxford Discover builds strong communication skills as students listen, speak, read, and write throughout each unit.
All the way through, students develop the important skills of critical thinking, creativity, and collaboration throughout each unit, preparing them for the demands of the 21st century.
Oxford Discover gives teachers the tools they need to create young thinkers with great futures.
“This school year, we’ve been using the Oxford Discover series in primary and we are positive we made the right decision. Teachers, parents and students love the material.”
Miss Brenda Méndez, Colegio Benedictino, Mexico
“When I have used other coursebooks, it has been very difficult to get my students to talk and write based on the things they learned. It is much easier with Oxford Discover.”
Ms Seojung Kim, Yooseok Elementary School, Korea
“The videos are a good way to introduce the topic. I have noticed that students in a natural way start talking about what they already know and what they want to know.
My students share their projects with the class. They really enjoy it. At the beginning they would get nervous or shy, but now I can tell they really enjoy sharing their work.”
Miss Martha Grajeda, Colegio Leonardo Da Vinci, Mexico
