  • Hi there,

    Thanks for your feedback. The materials in this lesson are based around watching a video which the students then discuss in class. Compass is predominantly intended to be taught as a whole course from lesson 1 to lesson 12, rather than separate stand-alone lessons.

    You can read more about the approaches used in Compass here:

  • Where is the actual lesson ..... There are a lot of plan and reviews but very little material you can actually use. I've got 15 years Ipif teaching experience I don't need advice I need materials I can use easily

  • Hi me3,

    Good to know. There's seems to be quite a divide in opinion over this. we'll have to give it some careful thought!

  • I prefer the teachers notes combined.

    It's easier to print.

  • Hi there,

    Thanks for the great feedback. Happy to hear that you like the new series.

    Previously, teacher's notes and student worksheets were available separately but the feedback we received was that users preferred them together. However, your feedback indicates the opposite so we will take this under consideration for the rest of the series.

    Best wishes,

  • First class material - thank you! (As usual, can I suggest separating the teacher notes from the student worksheet, please?)

  • Hi there,

    You can find links to the video in both the teacher's notes and the student worksheet.
