Why choose Our Discovery Island?

Engaging for young students

It's sometimes hard to keep kids focused, but they do better when they can relate to the material in the book. The ongoing storyline in Our Discovery Island is motivating because students become involved in what's happening. Characters they can get to know across all units through different activities and stories help students stay interested.

Promote learning progress

As new vocabulary and language structures are introduced it's important that students are exposed to them several times. Once students are exposed to new language via their textbook, it's useful for them to become familiar with new learnings and practice it in the Workbook, then see it again in a video format or on the iWB.

Slowly introduce grammar

Introducing language structure in a way that students can make sense of it is important, and one thing that helps is to introduce language in manageable amounts. It's useful for students to see the target structure in a way that can be used as a model for practice and continued reference. Take a look at the “Look” grammar boxes in the Student Book.

Incorporate digital elements

It is amazing what the kids are willing to do on a computer that they are reluctant to do in a book or on paper. Games, videos and other elements are all incorporated into the unique Online World - and if internet access is hard to come by, the Student Book comes with a CD-ROM full of activities kids can use to practice what they learned.

Keep lessons fun but focused

The students are excited when we can incorporate some of the technology that they love into the classroom. Children really enjoy things that are visual and interactive like DVD, CD-ROM, and ActiveTeach – a digital version of the Student Book that you can use on the Interactive Whiteboard or a computer & projector.

Track students' progress

Schools and parents want to make sure that students are learning - which means continual evaluation of performance. Informal assessment and traditional paper and pencil tests and quizzes are needed throughout the year. Our Discovery Island has assessment games and tests in every Student Book unit to help track students' progress.
