Turn up! 1

Turn up! 1 is the English course students need to become creative thinkers from level one. Based
on the DGB Program of Studies, Turn up! 1 gives high school students the tools to develop 21st
century skills that will enable them to succeed in their careers during the Information Age. Throughout
the 4 Blocks established by DGB, Turn up! 1 encourages students to answer questions, ask their
own questions and respect the different answers around the theme of the lesson. Turn up! 1
features collaborative learning with Project Based Learning (PBL), a teaching method that prepares
students for career, academic and personal success. Every block in Turn up! 1 gives students the
possibility of working on a project that engages them in research and in solving a real-world
problem. At the end of each Block, students present their own meaningful project in order to
demonstrate their knowledge and skills. The benefits of PBL are countless: students foster critical
thinking, deep content knowledge, media literacy, and communication skills.
Turn up! 1 also features Benjamin Bloom’s classification of levels and learning objectives. This
provides a solid foundation for the development of the 4 language skills: Listening, Speaking, Reading
and Writing and ensures students to go from their lower to higher order thinking skills. Every
lesson is built around a level from the Bloom’s Taxonomy: remember, understand, apply, analyze,
evaluate and create, providing a careful scaffolding of its learning objectives. This design will
enable both students and teachers to demonstrate and develop in-depth evaluation.
Turn up! 1 will definitely help high school students become skilled readers and writers and they will
also be able to express their thoughts about everyday topics and real world issues.
For teachers, Turn up! 1 offers guidance to become designers through Understanding by Design
(Grant Wiggings and Jay McTighe). This framework for improving student achievement will open
new paths of reflection and training, as the challenge is to “Start with the end in mind”.
