Dari Kami Ke Kita 1: Teacher Resource Book and CD

By | Copyright Year:2011 | ISBN-13: 9780170181365

Dari Kami Ke Kita is a new national Indonesian series of sequenced and cumulative resources designed to form the basis of a Years 7-10 teaching program. Currently, middle years Indonesian classrooms are not well served with stimulating material and resources, which recognise the cognitive stage of development of their learners. This series aims to provide students who have beginning levels of proficiency with an engaging and challenging way into language learning. It’s modern and introduces Indonesian in a fast-paced, dynamic way.

The TRPs offers easy and quick hints on how to use the different resources in within the SB, the WB and the CD-ROM. The teacher's book offers the shrunk version of the student book with easy hints on how to introduce topics, hints on how to best address language points and other quick and easy suggestions for easy teaching while in class. The teacher's CD-ROM offers the student's workbook with overprinted solutions, unit tests for each chapter (covering the main strands) and additional Blackline Masters with more consolidating tasks and games.


The TRP includes:
• A wrap-around version of the student book with notes and assistance on the side, plus advice on further activities, homework and methodology of teaching
• A CD-ROM with unit tests, additional Black Line Masters, the student’s workbook with overprinted solutions, transcripts
• The SSO allows teachers to enter the same protected areas that students have access to. The access is via registration and has a duration. (Contact your sales representative or customer service for more details)
The premium website has a free area accessible to everybody, with sample pages and news, and protected areas for the students’ activities for book 1 and book 2. To access these protected areas you need to purchase the workbook with an SSO card with a unique access code that has a duration (Contact your sales representative or customer service for more details).

Focus on intercultural language learning. The series places students’ linguistic and cultural identity at the centre and explicitly develops their meta-linguistic awareness and cultural understandings as well as their intercultural capability.

Focus on a developmental view of language learning. A number of strands (e.g. linguistic, cognitive, interaction) become increasingly sophisticated within each year and across the years (i.e. it is sequential and cumulative).

Plenty of photographic material for reflection, study and learning. Photos are relevant to the topics and facilitate making connections, classroom interaction and student’s engagement.

Many digital resources with meaningful tasks to further engage students and facilitate the consolidation of language points as well as offering useful research material for presentation and assessment.
