English Skills for the Future Kls X Peminatan Ilmu Bahasa dan Budaya Revisi
Student’s Book English Skills for the Future 1 for Senior High School/Madrasah Aliyah Grade X Language and Culture Program offers a cooperative learning for students to sharpen their critical and analytical thinking skills. Adopting the 2013 Curriculum (Revised Edition), this book aims to nurture students’ creativity as well as their problem-solving skills as it adapts a lively, engaging, cooperative learning approach to learning English as everyday practices.
Student’s Book English Skills for the Future 1 consists of six chapters: Be Honest, Be Futuristic, Be Wise and Inspiring, Be Active and Creative, Be Up-to-Date, and Be Smart and Expressive. Deploying five steps in scientific approach–observing, questioning, exploring, associating and communicating–, each chapter discusses various materials presented with various theme. Each chapter is opened not only by engaging introduction, but also by “Swing into Action” activity that stimulates students’ inquiry towards the subject discussed. By this, they will learn systematic observation, formulating relevant questions, correlating the subjects disscused with the phenomena they are familiar with, experimenting, and analyzing.
This book will sharpen students’ Basic Competence 3 (knowledge) and Basic Competence 4 (psychomotor), Basic Competence 1 (religious) and Basic Competence 2 (social attitudes). This is conducted in order to build up and balance students’ hard skills and soft skills (i.e. being kind, responsive, tolerant, cooperative towards their fellows and environment).
