“All the world’s a stage”: The new English Language Studies

  Preparatoria and Secundaria students are about to embark on the most revolutionary scheme of work in English Language Studies classes yet produced by the team at Jacaranda Education.

Students in English Language Studies classes will be using their new curriculum to explore the history and culture of the United Kingdom, while Elective level students will be making an in-depth academic study of the works of William Shakespeare (in the original English) and, in the Youth Media class, the production of documentary films.

The new English Language Studies curriculum, written specially for students at Instituto Blaise Pascale, consists of four modules (the same at each level) with differing grammatical structures. This year’s remarkable course consists of modules on Shakespeare, Spies and Espionage, Music and Popular Culture in the 80s and 90s, and The Olympic Games, all based around the study of a brief history of the United Kingdom. Throughout students will be applying the global themes discussed in the book to their local context through drama, presentations, written work and art and design.

The elective “Life and Times of William Shakespeare” course will see students examine what we really know of William Shakespeare, his life and the world in which he existed. Students will also read seven of Shakespeare’s best-known and most highly-regarded plays: Richard III, The Taming of the Shrew, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Othello, Romeo & Juliet, The Merchant of Venice and The Tempest in order to understand how the course of Shakespeare’s life and the revolutionary nature of his world impacted upon his plays. Students will look, in detail, and Shakespeare use of language for dramatic effect and will make a short production of a play they study in class.

The elective “Youth Media” class , which is part of the Adobe Youth Voices Programme organised by the Adobe Foundation, will continue to produce an excellent standard of documentary film-making examining aspects of Oaxaca that require improvement which can be achieved through social change. Students will be working to ensure that their final cuts are ready to be premiered at the Blaise International Film Festival in late October, now in its second year. Students will receive tutorials and workshops from experienced directors and film-makers based in Mexico, and will show their films alongside international directors at the film festival.

Secundaria students will also have their chance to create internationally renowned work through the new international art project devised by Jacaranda Education. In this project, which will run for one class per week, students will work on individual and group drawing, painting, sculpture and photography projects to create outstanding art work which will then be exchanged with participating schools in the USA, UK and Canada. Secundaria students will have the opportunity to work with students in these countries throughout the planning and development sections of their art projects and to create exhibitions for the artwork they receive.

In addition to our outstanding new curriculum which will expand the world view of the students at Instituto Blaise Pascale, students will also be participating in themed events based upon aspects of British Culture: Guy Fawkes Night, Remembrance Day, Burns Night and St. George’s Day to name but a few. We hope, through our multi-disciplinary and innovative approach to English Language education, to involve and invigorate the students and introduce them to a new and unique way of thinking about the world in which they are a global and local citizen.
