1- INTRODUCTION AND LEGAL FRAMEWORK
1.1- Justification of the programme
A Teaching programme is defined as the document which includes all the answers and
decisions taken by the English department related to the teaching-learning process and
represents a powerful tool for the teacher in order to organize their lessons.
This document will help us in planning and directing the education and it will be
considered the perfect guide for every teacher.
Regarding the legal framework, this English Teaching Programme is based on the new
Organic Law for improvement of Quality (LOMCE) in Education 8/2013 of 9th of
December, which is the current educational law in Spain, where you can find the general
objectives for Secondary Education and for the Foreign Language Area. The LOE was
concreted in the Royal Decree 1105/2014, 26th December, which establishes the C.S.E.
and Bachillerato curriculum and thirdly, the Decree 40/2015, of 15/06/2015 of Castilla-
La Mancha, which establishes the C.S.E. and Bachillerato curriculum.
The LOMCE (Ley Orgánica de la Mejora de la Calidad Educativa) is a revised version of
the existing educational law called LOE (Ley Orgánica de Educación). The objectives of the
LOMCE are:
 Improve knowledge of core subjects by placing greater emphasis on these subjects.
 Foreign language learning and multilingualism is a priority, because of the
importance of languages in a globalized society, reinforced by the European Union’s
goals for education.
 Create more proactive citizens prepared for today’s society through an
‘interdisciplinary’ vision, as well as incorporating values.
 Promote autonomy within schools to address specific student and family needs.
 Implement necessary corrective measures early and reduce dropout rates through
established testing.
 A renewed focus on ICT.
 Encourage improvement in education and promote excellence in line with
international educational standards.
 Integrate Key Competences into everyday learning and apply knowledge to real
world concepts, with continuous evaluation of these competences.

We also have to take into account some European legislation. Firstly, the program
Erasmus Plus KA1, which consists of journeys for teachers improvement in the learning
and teaching field. Secondly, we have to take into account the Portfolio, which parts are: 1)
Passport, 2) Biography and 3) Dossier. Thirdly, we have to take into consideration the
CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference). Fourthly, we have to consider the
European Training 2020 Main objectives: (1-Making lifelong learning and mobility a
reality. 2- Improving the quality and efficiency of education and training. 3- Promoting
equity, social cohesion and active citizenship 4- Enhancing creativity and innovation,
including entrepeneurship, at all levels of education and training). Last, but not least, I
take into consideration E-Twinning, which consists of a program in which students keep
in contact with other European Students via Internet.
This teaching programme is based on the 3rd YEAR OF COMPULSORY SECONDARY
EDUCATION. It is a compulsory stage for all students and I have decided to focus on the
programme on 3rd of C.S.E. as this level gives us the opportunity to transmit elements
and attitudes in class.
C.S.E. comprises 4 academic years which together with the six-school-year stage of
Primary Education, covers the Spanish Compulsory decade ranging from 6 to 16 years of
age. At the same time, we must consider that at this stage most of the students are 14 or
15 years old, age that must be considered when elaborating the activities as most of them
are suffering deep changes, both in the physical and psychological domain, in order to
choose materials and activities which would meet better the new interest and to make the
learning of English as attractive and motivating as possible.
One of the most outstanding features to be taken into account is its flexibility. It can
and must be adapted according to a real teaching-learning situation becoming the most
useful and permanent guide for the teacher throughout the educative course.
A didactic programme can be classified as: “It is an official document included in the
School Curricular Project based on the decisions and conclusions taken by each Didactic
Department”, in this case, English Language didactic deparment.

5
And it consists of the following parts: 1) the key competences, 2) the objectives, 3)
the contents to be included, 4) the methodological criteria and 5) the evaluation
criteria. Other contents included in didactic programmes are cross curricular aspects,
assessment procedures and percentajes, plans for students who fail the subject in
previous years, attention to diversity, materials and other resources and additional and
out-of-school activities such as extra-curricular and complementary activities.

6
1.2- Contextualization: Students and Centre
In the elaboration of this Teaching Planning and my 15 didactic units I will consider
the school design because of its direct influence upon the school organization and success.
This Teaching Plan takes as Students a group of 3rd year of C.S.E., comprised of 24
students (15 boys and 9 girls). Among them, there are two students from South America
with little knowledge of the English Language, a Chinese boy and a Chinese girl (who
learned the Spanish language in previous academic years) and a German boy who has got a
higher level of English than the rest of the students and speaks Spanish fluently. The
students, aged 14-15, when they are in the 3rd year of C.S.E., are beginning adolescence.
This is a period of notable physical, emotional and behavioural changes. The teenager
reaches a new manner of thinking: formal thinking, with which students can face problems
in an organized way, facilitating learning and better retention of what is learned as well as
a formulation of abstract and structured questions. It is a very important time for the
configuration of one’s own identity. Also, our students have some specific characteristics,
which have been recently analysed and figure into our Educational Project. Of them all,
and for the 3rd year of C.S.E., one stands out: the lack of motivation towards education as a
result of the social and familiar environment. These students have not acquired proper
study habits; the average time they dedicate to tasks and study outside school is about an
hour and a half day or even less. They have studied English for at last eight years, although
most of them have not achieved much success. They have just passed the First Level Stage
and tehy will have to be successful in the next two academic years in order to get the
Secondary Level Certificate. All these aspects contribute to the loss of motivation towards
studying and that is why apathy and passivity are the main problems we find in the class.
This lack of enthusiasm creates idleness and disillusion in the students, provoking a
feeling of despair and disappointment which can sometimes lead to early school dropout if
it is linked to parent’s low level of education and social disadvantaged backgrounds.

7
The High School to which this Teaching Plan is addressed to was opened in 2008 and
is located in the periphery of Guadalajara, the capital of the province. This centre is
situated in a place which is characterized by having a multicultural population with
different changes regarding mobility. Nowadays there are approximately 100,000
inhabitants in this city. There is some industrial activity, consisting on various sectors. The
population of this area is quite old. Another characteristic is that there is a fixed
population. Regarding the parents’ level of education, most of them have a medium or low
level, only 16% have university degrees. This town, has an economy based on industry,
commuting and agriculture from the rest of the province.
The Center is is located in the periphery of Guadalajara. It has over 200 students. The High
School has 10 classrooms, 8 of them with eBeam smart-boards and the rest are being
equiped with IQBoard, The Music classroom which is also used as a normal class, the
library which is used for the Reinforcement Programme Students (2º C.S.E.), a Computer
Room, the Staff Room and the Secretary’s Office, where it is also the Principal’s Office. In
the Computer Room there are 24 computers for students, a laptop for the teacher, an
interactive over head projector and Fiber for a faster Internet Connection. There are 3
Playground Areas, but we can use only one. This Center does not have a definite area for
Physical Education and the students have to use the town football ground, missing 15
minutes of their lessons every time they have this subject. Our center offers different
studies to two hundred students. The C.S.E. lessons are taught in a total of two groups per
level and year. There is also small groups of PMAR (Program for the Improvement of
Learning) in 3rd Year of C.S.E. and another one of Curricular Diversification in 4th year of
C.S.E. The center also offers Baccaulerate in the Humanities section.
The selection and sequencing of contents as well as specific methodology used, will all
consider the characteristics of our High School and of our students which, on the other
hand, are outlined and developed in the School Educational Project and School
Curricular Project.
The socioeconomic background is a middle class one, although the increasing growth
of immigrant population in the past years has brought about many immigrants. Even
though, we can highlight the existence of two South American, two Chinese and one
German students.

8
The Royal Decree 1105/2014, establishes several goals that the students will have
acquired by the end of the Compulsory Secondary Education. They are known as aims or
objectives and they are considered in all the activities created in the 15 didactic units.

2- DESCRIPTION OF THE CENTRE
2.1- The features of the school
The features of the school this syllabus is based comprises that of a great school should
have:
1. A very clear and shared mission and vision for the school. A contextual philosophy
of education for the school is also paramount. Staff, students, parents and the
community need to know the purpose and operational parameters of the school.
Nothing is left to chance.
2. Very clear goals and objectives which are communicated to the staff, students,
parents, and wider community. Everyone in the school knows exactly what he or
she is required to do on a daily basis in order to meet the institutional goals and
objectives. This speaks to performance on every level.
3. Great leadership from the principal. The principal is both instructional leader and
manager of the school. While both these roles are important, he or she must pay
particular attention to instructional leadership. This is what drives continual
improvement in teaching and learning throughtout the school.
4. A relentless focus on teaching and learning. This is informed by the belief that all
students can learn. Teachers must find ways to motivate and engage them. The
curriculum is rigorous and teacher performance is regularly monitored by the
principal and executive staff. Teachers and students strive for excellence in
academic and extracurricular activitie. Good performance is always publicly
recognized and rewarded in various ways.
5. Parental involvement in the school. Many studies have shown that students learn
better when their parents take a close interest in their schooling and form
partnerships with teachers. Parents can also help in various school activities.
Alumni and the wider communit can also offer assistance in many ways.
6. High expectations for students and staff. It is common knowledge that students will
generally live up to your expectations. When they know that teachers genuinely
care about them and believe in their ability, they work harder and perform better.
7. A culture and climate which are conducive to learning. This is reinforced by praise
and rewards for good performance and a student-centred approach to teaching.
8. A safe environment. Zero tolerance for violence, bullying, drugs, alcohol, offensive
weapons, stealing, sexual misconduct, and gangs. Heavy emphasis on positive
values such as respect, honesty, hard work, self-discipline, fairness and caring.
9. A focus on professional development for teachers. This includes mentoring,
delegation of tasks and additional responsibilities and formal in-house or external
professional development courses. Teachers are accountable for their performance.
10. Teamwork. Identification and collaborative solving of teaching and learning
problems at the school. Staff members are empowered to take the initiative and
make decisions. The principal facilitaes and monitors this process.

10
2.2- Human Resources
There are 100 teachers in the high school, ten of which belong to the English
Department. Most of these teachers of English are new English teachers who are covering
a vacancy, and there are two more experienced teachers with a post. Coordination and
communication among these teachers must be not only efficient and possible, but there
should be an exchange of resources and activities as well as duties and tasks are to be
shared among the members of the department.
Among the department objectives for this academic year, the following can be highlighted:
 To start lessons with a review activity which refreshes the work done in the
previous class.
 To enhance autonomous work for the consolidation and extra practice of contents
by using the department webpage, the teachers’ websites and blogs and other
digital materials.
 To work together with the class teaching team and to apply the same measures
towards disturbing students.
 To continue and implement the cooperation in the design of materials and project
for the different levels.

2.3-The general profile of my 3º C.S.E. students


Students form a group of 3rd year of C.S.E., comprised of 24 students (15 boys and 9
girls). Among them, there are two students from South America with little knowledge of
the English Language, a Chinese boy and a Chinese girl (who learned the Spanish language
in previous academic years) and a German boy who has got a higher level of English than
the rest of the students and speaks Spanish fluently. The students, aged 14-15, when they
are in the 3rd year of C.S.E., are beginning adolescence. This is a period of notable physical,
emotional and behavioural changes. The teenager reaches a new manner of thinking:
formal thinking, with which students can face problems in an organized way, facilitating
learning and better retention of what is learned as well as a formulation of abstract and
structured questions. It is a very important time for the configuration of one’s own identity.
Also, our students have some specific characteristics, which have been recently analysed
and figure into our Educational Project. Of them all, and for the 3rd year of C.S.E., one
stands out: the lack of motivation towards education as a result of the social and familiar
environment. These students have not acquired proper study habits; the average time they
dedicate to tasks and study outside school is about an hour and a half day or even less.

11
They have studied English for at last eight years, although most of them have not achieved
much success. They have just passed the First Level Stage and tehy will have to be
successful in the next two academic years in order to get the Secondary Level Certificate.
All these aspects contribute to the loss of motivation towards studying and that is why
apathy and passivity are the main problems we find in the class. This lack of enthusiasm
creates idleness and disillusion in the students, provoking a feeling of despair and
disappointment which can sometimes lead to early school dropout if it is linked to parent’s
low level of education and social disadvantaged backgrounds.

2.4- Criteria for students´ grouping


In the English classroom, there are different groupings:
 Great group: All the students work with the teacher in the same activity. It is used to
individual work, to give general instructions and to clarify information.
 Pair group: Students practice what they have learnt. It is used to work on dialogues,
role-plays, activities to complete information, question-answer activities, invent a
storytell.
 Group work: students make interactive and communicative actitivities, such as project-
work, playing communicative and linguistic games, free production activities, reading
and listening tasks, group writing, etc.
 Horse-shoe shape group: This grouping allow every student to see each other and at the
same time look at the teacher and at the blackboard. They can also communicate
between them orally and non verbally.

In order to group students in the English classroom, some strategies have to be taken:
 Choose tasks that are appropriate for groups
 Align activities with learning goals.
 Phrase assignments to promote higher-order cognitive skills.
 Successful group activities have a highly structured task.
 Promote group cohesiveness
 Have students do individual work before entering their group.
 Ensure both individual and group accountability.
 Select a debriefing mechanism

Besides, to manage a group work effectively, a checklist should be done:


 What to do before the activity / assignment:
 Set guidelines for student-student and student-instructor interactions during group
work and associated class discussions.
 Provide written and verbal instructions, including time limits and deadlines.
 Explain the motivation and learning goals for the activity.
 Establish accountability for both individual and groups.
 Provide students with the necessary resources to succeed.
 What to do during the assignment /activity:
 Actively engage and monitor groups.
 Frequently provide feedback to groups and individuals.

12
 What to do after the assignment/activity:
 Debrief the activity with the entire class.
 Assess student learning informally or formally.
 Provide feedback to individuals and groups regarding both group process and
products.
 Provide students with opportunities to reflect on their learning as well as
teamwork.

2.5- Organisation of space and timing


There are three independent buildings, one where vocational training courses are
taught and a main one, where most of the classrooms and offices are located. The high
school has adapted access for permanently and temporarily disabled students. The
facilities include a gym, a library, and a school cafeteria.
In terms of timing, this high school offers two schedules, one in the morning and
another in the afternoon. In the morning schedule, the high school offers 4 groups of CSE,
2 groups of Baccalaureate, 2 sixth form degree courses and 2 vocational training courses.
In the afternoon schedule, the high school offers 1 group of baccalaureate and 2 groups of
sixth form degrees.

2.6- Spatial distribution in the English class


English classes are thought to be distributed in a horse-shoe dispotition, because it
allows every student to see each other and at the same time look at the teacher and at the
blackboard. With this distribution, a warmer ambient is offered, a shorter physical
distance is offered and a more direct visual contact is established.

2.7- Improvement Plan of the centre


There are multiple models to obtain a good diagnostic of its reality, its needs and the
necessary measures which it should adopt for its improvement. One of the most common
models if the model EFQM. From this, some guidelines and criteria are established to be
used for different organisations in the evaluation of its own efforts and in the consecution
of a quality improvement. This is known as the European Model of Excellency, EFQM (EOQ)
The Organic Law 10/2002, 23rd December, of Education Quality (LOCE) in its article
41.1 entrusts the educative Administratios to adopt singular procedures in those schools
in which a differential educative intervention is needed.
The Educative council of the autonomous region of Madrid has established a Plan to
improve the quality of education in priority public centers.
The chosen policy, based on the aforementioned Organic Law in its article 67.4
establishes:
‘Educative administrations will promote agreements or commitments with the centers
to develop plans and performances which suppose a continuous improvement both of the
educational processes and the results.’

13
Its general characteristics are:
 It is a voluntary activity of the centers.
 It must be seen as a commitment between the educational center and all its
 concerned parties; that is, a commitment of the center with itself is established.
 Its development can be expected, along with its substantive results, an
improvement in the educational management and knowledge of the center as an
organization; its conditions fundamental issues have to do with the manifest need
to introduce improvements in the dynamics of the center, for which it is almost
essential to have a positive attitude towards the changes, as well as the belief that
these are possible.
 It must be preceded by an explicit diagnosis of the starting situation of the center in
relation to the priority area or areas, relating both to the management aspects a
well as to the strictly educational ones, on which the plan will focus.
 The identification of areas for improvement must be objective and based on facts
or results, by using the appropriate instruments.
 The improvement objectives must be realistic, concrete, evaluable and achievable
in a school year, notwithstanding that they can be integrated as part of a plan of
multi-year character.
 It must specify the objectives, the procedures and the planned actions, the people
responsible for its execution, the necessary resources and supports, a calendar for
its fulfillment and a plan for its monitoring and evaluation.
 It must involve people, from a participative orientation and under the impulse
associated with effective leadership by the center's management; that is, the
performance is shared and the importance of adequate leadership is worth noting.
 Usually brings about the collective satisfaction of being part of a human team
committed, capable of turning challenges into opportunities; thus, the processes of
coordination are fundamental.
 Requires that all or some of the instances of the educational center intervene in it:
management team, improvement team, Cloister, School Council, advisors external,
educational inspection area, program area, general management competent ...; thus,
it is worth noting the advice and internal and external follow-up.
 Must obtain an internal recognition and from the Educational Administration,
proportional to the will and effort put into play and the results obtained.

14
3- BASIC COMPETENCES
According to the CEFR, Competences are the sum of knowledge, skills and
characteristics that allow a person to perform actions. The European Parliament and the
Council of Europe (2006/962/CE) give a narrower definition of competences and define
them as a combination of knowledge, capacities, or skills and attitudes which are
appropriate to the context. They claim that Key Competences are those that every person
needs in order to achieve their self-fulfilment and personal development, as well as to
carry out an active role in society, and promote their social inclusion and employment.
The LOMCE states that Key Competences develop contents in an integrated way, with the
aim of carrying out activities successfully and solving complex problems efficiently. By the
same token, the LOE stablishes that all subjects should contribute to the development of
as many competences as possible in their own specific way. According to Order
ECD/65/2015, 21st January, Key Competences follow the European Union
recommendations for Lifelong Learning and have been introduced in the C.S.E.
curriculum. These Key Competences are those which any student must have acquired to a
certain extent by the end of their English language Education in secondary school so as to
achieve personal fulfilment and to be part of the active citizenship, in order to start adult
life in a satisfactory way and to be able to develop permanent lifelong learning. They are
all interdependent, and the emphasis in each case is on critical thinking, creativity,
initiative, problem solving, risk assessment, decision taking and constructive management
of feelings. The official curricular document explains how the English Language subject
contributes to the acquisition of Key Competences. Therefore we will establish a relation
between the Key Competences establsihed by the curriculum with the contents of the
English language subject. The most direct link for the subject of English is with
Competence in Linguistic Communication, but this subject also contributes to other
competences as follows

15
3.1- Linguistic communication (CLC)
This competence refers to the utility of the language as a tool for oral and written
communication, interpretation, performance and understanding of reality, the
construction of knowledge and the organization of one’s own thoughts, emotions and
behaviour. In this sense, we wil try to improve linguistic and sociolinguistic skills which
are relevant to having effective and real communication. As much as possible we will use
real speech situations or simulate those ones which are familiar to the students as well as
other interesting and useful ones for them to be of use in the future in less familiar
contexts relating to private, public, educative or professional speech situations. This
competence with a different level of domain and formality, especially in the written
language, means the ability to communicate in different contexts. Thus, it also facilitates
the access to more diverse sources of information, communication and learning. This
subject will contribute to develop this competence because the learning of the English
language, as well as the learning of the students’ mother tongue is based on the
development of communicative and linguistic abilities.

This subject will provide the students with tasks in which they will have the opportunity
to achieve a linguistic and communicative competence in the English language. We will
use those strategies the students have in their mother tongue in the leaning of the foreign
language: how to organise the speech, use gestures, distinguish the main idea or relevant
details, infer meaning from a text or contrast structures in both their mother tongue and
the foreign language as well as use dictionaries and other sources of information. Besides,
all the skills related to the learning of a foreign language (listening, reading, speaking and
writing) make sense as their use is closely related to social interaction. What is more,
communicative language competence is activated in the performance of the various
language activities, involving reception, production, interaction or mediation. Regarding
this competence’s proper acquisition, we have to bear in mind that all the linguistic
competence componentes (lexical, grammatical, phonological,…) will be taken into
account, there will be also the sociocultural component (knowledge of the world with its
inter-cultural dimension); and finally, the personal component (attitude, motivation and
personality).
Nowadays, we have the possibility of learning a foreign language through authentic
sources which are available to a great number of people thanks to ICTs. Moreover, this is
also an opportunity of having contact with the foreign language culture that the students
can use autonomously by surfing on the net, by communicating with other foreign
language’s speakers, and making new learning materials both inside and outside the
classroom.

3.2- Mathematic and competences based on science and technology (CMST)


It embraces the application of those skills and attitudes that allow students to reason
mathematically and to understand the mathematical argumentation and to express and
communicate in the mathematical language, by using appropriate helpful tools, integrated
into the mathematical knowledge along with other types of knowledge to give a better
answer to any possible situation in life with different levels of complexity.

16
This subject proposes reading texts in which students have to answer certain reasoning
questions related to their contents, in terms of dates, numbers, timetables and schedules.
Therefore students have to think carefully to give a correct answer by doing the required
mathematical operations. This competence implies the development and application of
scientific and technical thought so as to interpret the information provided, predict and
make decisions with personal initiative and autonomy, in a world where the new
discoveries produced in the scientific and technological fields are going to have a decisive
influence on our personal life, our society and our natural environment. Moreover, anyone
should have skills, abilities and knowledge related to this competence to be able to make
responsible use and take care of the environment and natural resources by means of
rational consumption, as essential elements to maintain the quality, honesty and decency
of human life. This subject will contribute to the development of this competence by
providing the students with texts related to the world, the natural environment and the
conditions of human life, so as to make them aware of the importance of valuing and
caring for the natural world as well as analysing and interpreting scientific and technical
thoughts and taking decisions with personal initiative and autonomy for a proposed final
task, since they will have to elaborate tasks related to themselves.

3.3- Digital Competence (DC)


This competence helps the students to become autonomous, efficient, responsible,
critical and reflexive people so as to be able to select, treat and use sources of information
by using different technological tools as well as to have a critical and reflexive attitude
when evaluating the information available by contrasting it when necessary, to respect
the rules of behaviour socially established and to regulate the use of information and
sources with the help of all the new digital technologies (blogs, wikis, software
applications, websites or on-line dictionaries).

This competence is very useful in the learning and teaching processes, due to the new
digital discoveries that facilitate both the students’ and the teachers’ work. The
expositions of projects using Power Point, Powtoon or Prezi as well as the smart-board will
mean a considerable saving of time not only for students but also for teachers. That gives
us more time to interact with our students and to detect their mistakes individually by
providing them with competitive games in which they have to participate verbally to give
a correct answer or to make questions of any type of knowledge in the English language
such as Kahoot! or Socrative. The exhibition of projects can also be recorded on their
mobiles, iPads or on a cloud (Dropbox or Google For Education) to be carefully co-
evaluated by the rest of the students with the purpose of improving and learning from
their mistakes. Therefore, this subject will contribute to the interaction and information of
exchange with people from other places, using diverse linguistic models and creating real,
functional communicative situations: chats, forum, image recording, on-line auditions,
interactive tasks, etc. taking advantage of multimedia environments. In this sense we can
use the Moodle Platform (EVAGD) to share videos, interviews to which students’ families
have access from home or the e-Twinning Space in class.

17
3.4- Learning how to learn (L2L)
This competence implies the conscious control of one’s own capacities by the
acquisition of learning techniques.

This subject facilitates the capacity of the students to interpret and represent the reality
and build any kind of knowledge, to formulate hypotheses and opinions, to express and
analyse feelings and emotions, to think about one’s own process of learning in an
autonomous way by providing them with strategies to learn.

3.5- Social and civic competences (CSC)


This competence implies the understanding of the social reality where we live, to face
problems of co-existence and conflicts by using an ethic sense based on values and
democratic practises, so as to become a democratic, peaceful, responsible and jointly
reliable citizen, and as well as a responsible person in terms of the fulfilment of human
and civic rights and one’s own duties.

This subject will contribute to the development of this competence by propitiating the
respect and interest in communication with speakers of other languages as well as the
recognition and acceptability of different cultures and types of behaviour. So, we will
provide them with tasks related to the exchange of personal information so as to reinforce
the identity of the interlocutors, interactive tasks to make the student express their own
ideas as well as to make the student express their own ideas as well as to make decisions
by co-evaluating the intervention of their classmates, pair-work and group-work activities
to do a project after taking decisions and making agreements so as to make them learn
from the contribution of the others.

3.6- Sense of initiative and entrepreneurship Spirit (SIE)


This competence presupposes to be able to imagine, develop and evaluate actions and
individual or collective projects with creativity, confidence, responsibility and critical
sense.

This subject contributes to this competence when propiliating individual work and
cooperative work in the classroom, for the handling of personal sources and social
abilities of cooperation and negotiation, and by providing the students with strategies
about how to learn and take decisions when learning, so as to keep on learning any other
language in an autonomous way without the help or any teacher.

18
3.7- Cultural Conscience and Expressions (CCE)
This competence refers to the ability to appreciate and enjoy art and cultural evidence
or samples, such as those related to the use of sources of artistic expression in order to

cooperative work, and a respectful and critical attitude towards teh diversity of artistic
and cultural expression, to cultivate one’s own aesthetic and creative capacity, an interest

dislikes, feelings and emotions, which make possible the production of individual or
collective creative works and simulations.

6-TEMPORALIZATION
For this syllabus, contents have been sequenced and organized into 15 didactic units in
order to achieve the intended objectives. We have planned that there is an average of 32
weeks in a normal school-year which makes about 96 English lessons of fifty-five minutes.
However, in this year, classes end inMay, so we have 28 weeks and 74 lessons of fifty-five
minutes. Furthermore, we have decided to leave out 6 sessions to attend to different
circumstances like tests or school trips, for example, which can be turned into extension or
review lessons if needed. Then, we have covered 22 weeks or 66 lessons and each didactic
unit takes 22/5 sessions (4 sessions) to be developed. This allows the programme to cover
the contents in a period of time which is appropriate at the same time that flexible.
The layout of the didactic units includes their essential elements, the relation of the
unit with cross-curricular values and contents, and some space for the evaluation of the
units.
The title of each unit is an English idiom related to the main lexical or

14-CONCLUSION
The aim of this syllabus is to serve as a guide for the teaching and learning process, with the
fundamental goal of developing of the students’ capacities. This syllabus has been adapted to all the
students of 3RD CSE, in order to help them achieve the established objectives and to attain the
competences. It recognises the crucial role of students’ active involvement in the learning activities,
encouraging them to discover the environment through spontaneous interaction, rather than through
the presentation of ready-made knowledge. It promotes interaction, rather than through the
presentation of ready-made knowledge. It promotes interaction, by means of extensive use of group
work, because it acknowledges the fact that meaningful learning occurs through interaction and is
socially constructed. It also aims at awakening students’ interest in the English language and in the
English-speaking countries, while fostering a tolerant attitude towards other cultures and langauges
different from their own.
Interesting and appealing topics, relevant to the students’ age, a great variety of activities,
the use of authentic materials, a modern and varied methodology, a learner-centred evaluation
process, constitute the strong points of this syllabus. Above all, this syllabus aims at stimulating and
motivating the students and at encouraging them to learn by using experience and reflection on their
own learning process.
Nevertheless, it must be taken into consideration that this syllabus is a theoretical proposal
and so, it must be dynamic and flexible. Strengths and weaknesses might become apparent when put
into practice and it might be necessary to add more sessions to certain units or to introduce more
reinforcement and extension activities. The teacher decides what changes have to be made in order
to adapt the syllabus to the characteristics of the students and of the educational context, with the
final goal of attaining the didactic objectives and the adequate development of the competences.
