Better Learning is our simple approach where deeper insights help shape richer content that drives stronger results.
Children are more than just language learners. This is why in Super Minds you will find a whole range of activities that support children’s language learning alongside lifelong skills such as thinking, creativity and social values.
The "Learn and think" sections actively develop thinking skills and improve proficiency. The activities explore other subject areas such as maths, science and music, and challenge children to apply their knowledge to hands-on Projects. These activities not only develop useful skills such as problem solving and logical thinking but also lead to meaningful language production.
Learning to interact with others is an important part of young learners’ education. Lively stories, and CLIL, encourage learners to explore social values and enable children to reflect on their behaviour in similar situations.
Experimenting with language is the first step to expressing creative ideas. Super Minds provides children with support and opportunities to use language in a playful yet communicative way through unique visualisation activities, drama, arts and crafts that nurture creativity.
Whether you wish to captivate learners' attention with interactive content, find all your teaching resources in one place or track your learners' progress online, the Super Minds digital package has all the tools you need:
Written by a highly respected author team and informed by international standards in teaching language to children, Super Minds is a young learner English programme designed to help you and your students achieve success.
Super Minds pedagogy is strongly underpinned by the authors' deep understanding of the learning needs of this age group as well as extensive knowledge of good classroom practice and teaching challenges. These insights helps us create a rewarding experience for you and your learners.
The language and skills syllabus of Super Minds is built on Cambridge English: Young Learners, an internationally recognised benchmark for teaching children English.
