Story Central

Stories play a central role in young children's worlds, so much so that recent studies show that children as young as three are capable of stepping into the minds of their favorite storybook characters. That is why stories are so essential to the infant English class.

This brand new mid-high primary course in American English fosters a love of learning and language, its strong literacy strand uses storytelling to empower teachers and encourage children to think both critically and creatively, stimulating their imagination. Story Central promotes curiosity, imagination, playfulness and adaptability via development of 21st century skills (being critical thinking, communication and collaboration).

Critical thinking, critical literacy and storytelling are at the hub of Story Central, a beautiful six-level primary course. With a rich literacy strand students are exposed to a variety of genres throughout the accompanying Reader. Students are taught to critically examine stories, working together to find meaning. Every chapter (unit) covers key language and includes a feature story, a grammar corner, CLIL content and a project lesson. Each level has a Student Book, a Reader to develop students' reading skills and an Activity Book with Cambridge English: Young Learner test-style practice activities.
