Learn more about Stopwatch: Student’s Book & Workbook

Available in print or digital versions, the Student’s Book & Workbook is your students’ blended learning package for in and out of class. Its eye-catching, magazine feel will grab their interest with authentic-looking, motivating activities, and the opening Big Questions will get their higher-order thinking skills working! Units are divided into two-page sections, starting with vocabulary and grammar, followed by sections for skills development (two skills per unit), cultural knowledge, and Projects. The integrated Workbook section and Toolkit Worksheets make sure your students get plenty of practice.

Big Question

The Big Question establishes the theme of the unit and encourages students’ critical thinking, curiosity and an interest in learning.

Vocabulary

Rich visual support helps convey meaning to the thematic sets of vocabulary presented and Glossary boxes explain new words.

Grammar

Grammar is completely contextualized, so students can clearly see the meaning, form and use of structures.

Think Fast!

These quick-thinking games give students a limited amount of time to complete a verbal challenge! The Stopwatch icon shows how many minutes or seconds they get to do it in!

Skills

The four language skills (two skills in each unit) are practiced through high-interest topics, with Be Strategic! tips for skills development.

Stop and Think!

These thought-provoking activities can relate to critical thinking or to values.

Culture

Students can experience the rich diversity of cultures and peoples on our planet with these two-page, highly-photographic Culture lessons.

Project

Students apply the skills they learned throughout the unit to a creative Project task connected to the Big Question. We guide students through the linguistic and conceptual preparation for their projects.

Review

Students can practice and consolidate their learning with review activities in vocabulary and grammar that expand on the unit theme.

Just for Fun

A page of fun activities for fast finishers at the end of the unit.
