Welcome to Eyes Open
Eyes Open is a four-level course for lower-secondary students, which will give you and your students all thè tools you need for successful and enjoyable language teaching and learning. Teaching secondary students can be challenging, even for thè most experienced of teachers. It is a period of great change in young teenagers' lives, and it sometimes seems that their interests lie anywhere but in the classroom. It is the teacher's demanding task to engage students in the learning process, and Eyes Open' s mission is to help them
as much as possible to achieve this. After extensive research and investigation involving teachers and students at secondary school level, we've come to a clear conclusion: sparking students' curiosity and desire to learn is one of thè main driving forces which can enhance and facilitate the learning process. The aim of Eyes Open is to stimulate curiosity through interesting content via impactful video, visual images and 'real world' content on global themes.
How Eyes Open will benefit you and your students:
Engaging real world content
Eyes Open contains a wealth of fascinating reading texts and informative Discovery Education video clips. The two-page Discover Culture sections bring global cultures to the classroom, greatly enhancing the students' learning expérience whilst simultaneously reinforcing target language. The texts and three Discovery Education video clips per unit often revolve around teenage protagonists. The wide variety of thèmes, such as natural history, inspiring personal stories, unusual lifestyles, international festivals and customs, teach students about the world around them through the medium of English, whilst also promoting values such as cultural awareness and social responsibility. Each unit also has an
accompanying CUL lesson (with accompanying Discovery Education video) which contains a reading text and activities. Each unit's texts, together with the videos, encourage the students to reflect on, discuss and explore the themes further.
