Synopsis

Global Perspectives for Cambridge IGCSE by Jo Lally

Build solid critical thinking skills - and a strong foundation for future study, including IB Theory of Knowledge. This structured, comprehensive resource develops key thinking, reasoning, planning, research and presentation skills through engaging, up-to-date global contexts. Varied activities are aligned to the 20 international topics on the latest Cambridge IGCSE Global Perspectives syllabus, and act as a springboard for discussion. The skills-focused approach fits with the ethos of the Global Perspectives course, both scaffolding students' thought processes and allowing them the freedom to explore subjects that interest them. Plus, recommendations for extended project and group work encourage students to explore their interests in greater depth. An accompanying teacher website includes plenty of up-to-date ideas for expanding on themes introduced in the book, helping you to encourage top achievement. Written by an examiner, the assessment practice helps students to apply their skills, with a focus on exam confidence and success.

Reviews

This is a great classroom resource. It makes a complex syllabus manageable for the teacher and interesting and accessible for learners. There are differentiated learning activities which allow for the development of analytical skills and supported evaluation. Resources are interesting and provide a wide range of viewpoints and perspectives. This gives students the opportunity to engage in informed and lively debate about contemporary global issues. Teacher review, Amazon I find the teaching of Global Perspectives very fascinating as it allows discussions to take different routes and equips the students with all the necessary skills for the study. Our students enjoy using the Cambridge IGCSE Global Perspectives Student Book and find it very useful in highlighting the key areas of the topics.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

Emily Jacques

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Angela East

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

I love Lovereading4kids because I get an opportunity to put my opinion forward and to try new books

Elosie Clarkson – age 11

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

Lorraine Woods

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
