  • Global Changer

    Global Changer will motivate students and help them develop the competencies they need to be the game changers of tomorrow.  

    This lively English course is aligned with the competencies of the Base Nacional Comum Curricular (BNCC) and is specially designed to help teen students to be an agent of change from an attentive, careful and optimistic look, as it encourages them to embrace diversity and necessary conversations among the entire school community.  

    With its fresh and fun approach to global real world-topics, Global Changer helps teachers prepare stimulating and easy-to-teach lessons that will ensure students are motivated and engaged throughout the whole school year.

    Also, Cambridge University Press has established a partnership with Instituto Ayrton Senna, one of the largest not-for-profit organizations in Brazil, and which has received the seal of approval for the creation of the UNESCO Chair in Education and Human Development for the projects and initiatives developed since 1994 in favor of Education.

    Empower your students to be game changers!

    Students with critical thinking skills

    We often “read” images before we read words. This happens every day with what we see on television, advertisements, internet memes, emoji or other media. By encouraging different responses to visual stimuli, we can help students critically analyze and interpret what they see and develop a deeper understanding of topics. The “Think!” questions at unit openings and throughout each unit encourage students to think beyond the photo or topic and articulate their opinions, developing their critical thinking skills.
