Get ready for academic study and the workplace of tomorrow

Northstar is an intensive integrated skills course. It incorporates critical thinking and academic skills with language development, and engages students through authentic and compelling content. It is designed to prepare students for the demands of college level and university study.

Get ready for academic study and the workplace of tomorrow
NorthStar builds language skills while developing the 21st century skills students need and exploring a topic in depth. Activities are well scaffolded and support students to become critical thinkers and build the real world spoken language and writing skills necessary to survive in higher-level academic courses.

Immerse yourself in the topic
Research shows that students learn language better when they use it to study something else. In NorthStar, each unit explores a different thought-provoking theme across both strands so learners study a topic in depth.

Develop the critical thinking skills your students need to succeed
Applying Bloom’s Taxonomy, the approach to critical thinking challenges students to move beyond basic comprehension to higher-level analysis.
