Content Overview

The purpose of this document is to provide teachers with support and information on planning, creating and delivering their lessons throughout
the year. Teachers will need to refer to this document when planning and delivering their textbook-based lessons and creating their own non-
textbook-based lessons.

In this Scheme of Work document, teachers will find the following information:

1. Content and organisation of the Scheme of Work

This section provides teachers with an introduction to the Scheme of Work and an explanation of how the textbook-based lessons and the non-
textbook-based lessons are organised within the Scheme of Work.

2. Supporting information

This section provides teachers with an explanation of the information contained within the Scheme of Work template. This section also gives
teachers advice on completing the Scheme of Work template for their own non-textbook-based lessons.

3. Differentiation strategies for secondary pupils

This section provides teachers with a number of suggested differentiation strategies that teachers may wish to use within their classes.

4. Glossary of terms in the Form 3 Curriculum Framework

Teachers should refer to the Content and Learning Standards contained within the Scheme of Work. These Content and Learning Standards
come from the Standards-Based Curriculum and Assessment Document (DSKP) and the Curriculum Framework document.

This section provides teachers with supporting explanations for some of these Content and Learning Standards. It also provides explanations of
important terms used in some of the lessons. These terms are mainly found in the Learning Outline section (see the first table in the Glossary of
Terms).

5. Scheme of Work (Lessons 1 – 112)

This is the main section of the scheme of work. It provides teachers with details for the textbook-based and non-textbook-based lessons.

Secondary Form 3 Scheme of Work
1. Content and organisation of the Secondary Form 3 Scheme of Work

What is the Secondary Form 3 Scheme of Work and how can it help teachers?

The Scheme of Work gives teachers an overview of the Content and Learning Standards to be covered within each lesson. The Scheme of Work
will assist teachers in their daily, weekly and longer-term planning of lessons.

What does the Secondary Form 3 Scheme of Work consist of?

The Scheme of Work consists of 112 lessons with each lesson lasting a total of 60 minutes. If lessons are organised into 30-minute lessons,
teachers will need to plan and adapt their lessons accordingly. Each lesson in the Scheme of Work is numbered from Lesson 1 to Lesson 112.

The Scheme of Work consists of the following two types of lesson:


1. Textbook-Based Lessons: The materials for these lessons include learning activities from the selected Form 3 textbook. This textbook is
Close-up and Form 3 will cover the content from Unit 1 to Unit 11 of this textbook.
2. Non-Textbook-Based Lessons: For this type of lesson, teachers will be responsible for developing the lesson content and creating the
necessary learning materials. There are four types of non-textbook-based lessons in Form 3 Scheme of Work; Literature in Action, Revision,
Project-Based Learning Lessons and one Writing lesson (lesson 108)

How are the Secondary Form 3 Scheme of Work lessons organised?

Almost all the lessons in the Scheme of Work are textbook-based lessons, with the exception of the Literature in Action Lessons (see lesson
cycle below), Revision Lessons (Lessons 106 (Listening), 109, and 110), Writing Lesson (108) and two Project-Based Learning Lessons (Lessons
111 and 112).

Typical lesson cycles

Each unit (units 1-11) of Close-Up will provide teachers with enough materials for 9 lessons (with a few exceptions, see revision lessons section
below). Together with the non-textbook-based Literature in Action lesson, each unit of Close-Up corresponds with a 10-lesson cycle consisting
of the following typical lesson sequence:

8
Secondary Form 3 Scheme of Work
Lesson Lesson Skill/Focus Time
2 Lessons Reading 120 minutes
1 Lesson Language Awareness 60 minutes
2 Lessons Listening 120 minutes
2 Lessons Speaking 120 minutes
2 Lessons Writing 120 minutes
1 Lesson Literature in Action 60 minutes

Teachers should note the following:

 Reading, Listening, Speaking and Writing will mainly cover a total of two lessons (i.e. 120 minutes) in each cycle due to the amount of material
available for these lesson types in Close-Up. There are occasional exceptions when Speaking and Writing lessons are replaced with revision
lessons: see the revision lessons section for further information on these lessons.
 Language Awareness Lessons will focus on learning a specific grammatical structure or function (e.g. learn and review the difference between
the use of the Present Simple and Present Continuous). Teachers can cover the vocabulary sections in the Student’s Book units as part of
the lessons (Reading, Listening, Speaking and Writing) if possible or as part of homework. Teachers are encouraged to complete the majority
of these vocabulary sections to help pupils practise and revise new vocabulary in the unit.
 Literature in Action (LiA): There are no specific materials in the Student’s Book (Close-up) to support this lesson type. Therefore, teachers
are encouraged to create their own lessons by incorporating materials from the Literature Component textbooks provided by the Ministry of
Education.
 Revision Lessons are available in two cycles, see below for more information.
 The final two lessons (Lessons 111 and 112) provide teachers with the opportunity to create Project-Based Learning Lessons (PBL). This will
be one project over the two lessons. Teachers will also have the opportunity to select appropriate Content and Learning Standards for these
two Project-Based Learning lessons depending on the specific needs and interests of their pupils. These lessons are not based on the
textbook.

It is strongly recommended that teachers follow the above structure in the order that it is presented within the Scheme of Work. Each activity in
each unit of the Student’s Book follows on logically and/or developmentally from the previous activity, unless the Scheme of Work states a
different order. In this case, follow the order in the Scheme of Work.

9
Secondary Form 3 Scheme of Work
Teachers are expected to use both the Student’s Book and Teacher’s Book when preparing textbook-based lessons. If teachers do not have
regular access to the Teacher’s Book they should prepare a few lessons in advance as necessary. If access to the Teacher’s Book is very limited,
teachers are advised to be proactive and collaborative by planning together and consulting with the English Head or a senior teacher at their
school. It is important that teachers obtain the correct answers from the answer key sections available in the Teacher’s Book. The Teacher’s
Book also provides a lot of guidance and ideas, background information and the listening script. Therefore, it would be useful for all teachers to
access it, even if only periodically.

Exam Close-up and Exam Task:

The Close-up Student’s Book contains Exam Close-up and Exam Task sections in every skill-based lesson. The exam tips and activities are
generally in line with Form 3 assessment objectives. However, please be aware that they may not mirror exactly the actual assessment tasks in
the Form 3 final exam. While there are differences in the tasks used, the underlying principles are often similar, and both have been developed
with extensive reference to the CEFR. Exam Close-ups and Exam Tasks are therefore useful for practising for the final exam and for developing
language skills that are valuable for current and future language learning and assessment.

Revision Lessons

Some lessons are planned in the Scheme of Work for revising, reviewing and consolidating learning. These are lessons 56 and 57, which take
place mid-way through cycle 6 (Unit 6 of the textbook) and lessons 106, 109 and 110, as part of cycle 11 (Unit 11 of the textbook). This means
that lessons in cycles 6 and 11 do not follow the usual ten-lesson cycle, because one of the speaking lessons from the sequence is replaced by
a revision lesson (units 6 and 11) and one writing lesson is replaced by a revision lesson (unit 11 only). Also the second Listening lesson in cycle
11 (lesson 106) is dedicated to revising listening skills based on pupils’ needs. For lesson 106, teachers can either re-use listening material from
the textbook or from other sources.

Teachers will develop these revision lessons either individually or by working together to pool their expertise and experience via the Professional
Learning Communities (PLC) within their schools. The lessons will respond to the needs of the pupils as identified by teachers.

10
Secondary Form 3 Scheme of Work
2. Scheme of Work Template: Supporting Information

1. Lesson

Each lesson within the Scheme of Work is given a number followed by the lesson type (e.g. Lesson 1 Reading; Lesson 3 Language Awareness
etc.).

2. Main Skill Focus

Each lesson will have one main skill focus.

3. Theme

The four given themes are:

 People and Culture


 Health and Environment
 Science and Technology
 Consumerism and Financial Awareness

Each cycle of ten lessons has been assigned a specific theme. This is to ensure that all of the above themes are adequately c overed throughout
the course of Form 3.

4. Topic

Topics are taken from the textbook.

5. Cross Curricular Elements

Each cycle of lessons has been assigned a specific Cross Curricular Element. Teachers will need to refer to the section on the Cross Curricular
Elements in Standards-Based Curriculum and Assessment Document (DSKP) for further guidance.

Teachers are encouraged to link to other Cross Curricular Elements within a lesson cycle, in addition to the suggested one given, if they identify
opportunities where relevant cross-curricular connections can be made.

11
Secondary Form 3 Scheme of Work
6. Language/Grammar Focus

This will be related to a grammatical structure/function (e.g. Present Simple versus Present Continuous).

7. Content Standards and Learning Standards

The given Content and Learning Standards are taken from the Standards-Based Curriculum and Assessment Document (DSKP) and the
Curriculum Framework Document.

8. Main Skill and Complementary Skill

Each lesson within the Scheme of Work focuses on one main skill and one complementary skill. To ensure that pupils receive sufficient exposure
to and practice in every Learning Standard within the Curriculum Framework, each Learning Standard appears at least once within the Scheme
of Work. Learning Standards may be covered as a main skill or as a complementary skill. It is therefore critical that teachers ensure that both
the main skill and the complementary skill are covered in each lesson. The complementary skill is not an optional skill that can be ignored or
dropped from the lesson. Doing this may mean that pupils do not receive adequate practice in and exposure to all the given Learning Standards
within the Curriculum Framework. When teachers are planning their lessons they must therefore ensure that both the main skill and
complementary skill are each assigned a suitable learning objective.

Teachers should also be aware that the main skill and complementary skill should not however be given equal time and attention within the
lesson. Teachers will need to ensure that the complementary skill is covered, but the degree of attention this complementary skill receives in
comparison to the main skill will be up to the teacher’s own professional judgement as they will know better the specific learning needs of their
pupils.

9. Learning Outline

The Learning Outline provides guidance to teachers for the delivery of a lesson. Three main stages of every lesson are highlighted: Pre-lesson,
Lesson delivery and Post-lesson. Teachers will also need to refer to the Teacher’s Book, which provides detailed information about the delivery
of the textbook activities for the textbook-based-lessons. The learning outline states in bold which activities from the textbook will be the focus for
that lesson. The learning outline also indicates which activities are related to the main skill and which activities are related to the complementary
skill.

Each cycle of ten lessons includes Pre-lesson, Lesson delivery and Post-lesson; some of these activities are not activities taken from the textbook.
Pre-lesson activities activate and review pupils’ prior knowledge by, for example, reviewing relevant learning from a previous lesson or using a

12
Secondary Form 3 Scheme of Work
short activity as an opportunity for pupils to share what they already know about the lesson topic. Post-lesson activities take place at the end of
lessons to review and consolidate the learning from a lesson.

10. Materials / References

The relevant page numbers of the Student’s Book and Teacher’s Book have been given for the textbook-based lessons.

11. Differentiation Strategies

Suggestions for differentiation are given in the Scheme of Work. For the Reading, Language Awareness and Writing lessons, the suggestions
focus on differentiating the time pupils are allotted to complete each task. Fast finishers can be moved on to the next activity in the sequence of
learning in the Reading, Language Awareness and Writing lessons, and suggestions for extension tasks for fast finishers in these lessons are
also included. For Listening and Speaking lessons, the suggested differentiation strategy focuses on using differentiated support that addresses
individual learning preferences and needs. Pupils can be paired up in these lessons to help and support each other (for example, a more able
pupil with a less able one). In Speaking lessons especially, different groupings can help to vary the interactions and will allow pupils to benefit
from different dynamics.

However, teachers will need to select additional differentiation strategies that are suitable in relation to the materials used and the specific needs
of their pupils. Teachers are provided with detailed explanations of a number of differentiation strategies that they can use (see Section 3
Differentiation strategies for secondary pupils).

13
Secondary Form 3 Scheme of Work
3. Differentiation strategies for Secondary pupils

Strategy 1: Differentiate by instruction and feedback


Use classroom management techniques to support differentiation.
1. Ensure that pupils who are finding particular tasks in English challenging still have a chance to contribute in class in order to develop their
confidence. You can do this in a number of ways. The following are a few examples:
i) Ask them to read instructions aloud.
ii) Monitor and check that pupils having difficulty with the task have completed the first few questions correctly and when going through
feedback with the whole class, choose them to answer the first one or two questions which you know they have done correctly.
iii) Prompt and support during group work if a pupil is having difficulty with the task or does not feel confident enough then indicate and praise
them when they have done well. When you check answers with the whole group you will then ask them to do the question you have just
seen them answer.
iv) Choose them to be ‘group leaders’ for games or activities, e.g. count the points for team games, ensuring the group completes the work.
v) Choose them to ‘report back’ after group work – this means they will repeat what the group has done even if they did not come up with
ideas themselves.
vi) Ask them to take responsibility for classroom tasks, e.g. helping hand out copies so they are involved even if they are struggling with
questions.
vii) Ask them to write answers up on the board while other pupils call out the answers.
2. Before checking answers with the whole group, always allow pupils to do a peer check (comparing their answers in pairs or small groups).
This encourages confidence, as there is a shared responsibility for any errors. It also allows peer to peer teaching – some pupils can clarify
and those struggling with the tasks will gain extension support.
3. When getting feedback, do not go around the class picking pupils in order. Ask pupils randomly (making a note if it helps to ensure you ask
different pupils each time over a few lessons). Choose the respondent according to the level of the task and what you know about your pupils.
4. Monitor closely – this will allow you to check that everyone has understood and is doing the task successfully and to provide extension
questions to those finding the task easy.
5. Always do an example for each task. This provides a clear instruction for everybody. Those finding the task easy can help supply the example
to increase the challenge.

14
Secondary Form 3 Scheme of Work
Strategy 2: Differentiate by the task pupils are given
It is possible to use the same source material and expected outcomes but to adapt and differentiate the way the task works for pupils. This takes
slightly more preparation for the teacher but the tasks can often be reused for more than one class.
Examples of task differentiation include the following:

i) Give pupils standard ‘gap fill’ tasks but add in multiple-choice options for the less proficient pupils. For example (Close-up page 9, activity F):
 I 1._____ (think) that identical twins are fascinating. They 2.______ (have) the same DNA, but they…
 I 1. think/am thinking that identical twins are fascinating. They 2. have/are having the same DNA, but they…
ii) For grammar analysis boxes where the use of a grammar form has to be completed or matched to a reason (Close-up page 9, activity A),
give the activity as it is to all pupils but give the correct answers to less proficient pupils and add additional, clear examples that they match
to the analysis. Give more proficient pupils sentence writing, e.g. requiring them to write new sentences based on the prompts a-d (habits,
scientific facts, etc.) using the present simple.
iii) For activities involving filling in a table or categorising (Close-up page 20, activity A), add some items into the table in advance for less
proficient pupils but leave other pupils to do all the items themselves, and add some additional items for more proficient pupils.
iv) For a standard writing activity, pupils write an email using the prompts provided (Close-up page 14, activity G) but give less proficient pupils
a skeleton or an outline to help them organise their ideas. Ask more proficient pupils to write responses to other proficient pupils’ emails.
Sometimes, you can also give different tasks to more proficient and less proficient groups of pupils according to their needs and interests: see
strategy 6 for more on this.
Another way to differentiate by task, if using the same task for the whole class, is to include some open-ended items which allow for a large
number of correct responses. This can vary in terms of the amount pupils produce or the complexity of their answers.
Tasks might include:
 brainstorming lists
 creating mind maps
 thinking of examples
 playing games requiring personalised answers, e.g. about their families / favourite food
 doing a presentation of information

15
Secondary Form 3 Scheme of Work
Open-ended discussion tasks (e.g. Tell me about life in cities and life in the country, or What will happen next?) allow more proficient pupils to
contribute with more unusual words, more complex language, or more original ideas.
Project work is particularly good for differentiating tasks. You can give slightly different tasks to less and more proficient pupils, e.g. a stronger
group may be asked to create a booklet and presentation on historical places in Malaysia; less proficient pupils might be asked to create the
same for one historical place. (See also additional ideas in Strategy 4).

Strategy 3: Differentiate by the type and amount of support provided


The teacher can support pupils to understand and use language with:
i) your own ‘teacher talk’ (e.g. ‘Look at the words in the box. Which one is a number?’)
ii) with gestures or mime
iii) utilising more proficient pupils to reinforce, e.g. you set an instruction or clarify a new word - to check the instruction or reinforce the word,
then choose a more proficient pupil to repeat or explain again. This will encourage more proficient pupils to produce language and add
challenge for them and the repetition will also support less proficient pupils.
iv) with visuals (e.g. flashcards on the board to help pupils understand or use vocabulary),
v) with written words (e.g. written words on a worksheet to help pupils with spelling)
vi) when giving tasks, have two worksheets – add in a clarification of important and/or difficult vocabulary in basic English or mother tongue.
vii) where pupils are doing project work, encourage more proficient pupils to do more, e.g. research content themselves. Support less proficient
pupils with input, e.g. give them handouts of information to start using rather than expect them to find this themselves.
Different types and amount of support can be given to less proficient pupils, depending on their needs, or can be used to provide extension
challenge for more proficient pupils.

Strategy 4: Differentiate by the outcome expected from pupils


You may expect more language from some pupils, and less from others. The main aim is that every pupil says or writes something, so that they
feel successful. Four useful strategies here are:
i. Compulsory plus optional
Here, you set pupils targets such as With your partner, write 2 sentences or more, or In your group use two new words. The minimum
target (2 sentences, 2 new words) is compulsory, and everyone needs to achieve this to be successful. But the ‘or more’ is optional, and
gives a chance for more proficient pupils to challenge themselves. Some pupils will stop at the minimum target at first, but with more

16
Secondary Form 3 Scheme of Work
practice, they will soon get the idea of going beyond the minimum target. This can be simple, e.g. ‘There are 10 true and false questions
for the reading. You have 5 minutes. You must do 5 questions – you can choose any 5. If you have time you can do more.’ This will allow
pupils to do more or less and also to choose the questions they find easiest.
ii. Remember and share
If pupils are asked to remember and share, they have to tell you words or ideas they learned in a previous lesson or task. (E.g. Look at
the classroom objects on my table. In one minute, I’ll cover them… Now, share with your group what you remember and then tell me).
This task allows all pupils to make successful contributions.
iii. Add on
Monitor during tasks, e.g. reading or listening questions. Where pupils have done well, have a few extension questions to hand and ask
them. Alternatively ask them to rewrite sentences or think of their own additional questions to ask other more proficient pupils.
iv. Project outcome
If pupils are doing project work, encourage more proficient pupils to do more – either produce a greater quantity of output or produce more
complex outcomes. For example, if pupils are doing a project on the environment, more proficient pupils can research and produce a
written report and do a class presentation; less proficient pupils can be given materials to use for ideas and produce a short illustrated
summary only.

Strategy 5: Differentiate by the time pupils are given to complete a task.


Some pupils need longer than others to complete tasks, especially when writing is involved. When it’s appropriate, these pupils should be given
a little more time to finish. Extension tasks for pupils who complete the task early should also be provided (e.g. Write three more sentences using
the same new words; Label the picture in the textbook and check any you don’t know in the dictionary; Talk with your friend in English: You
choose what to talk about).
If pupils are doing group work, match fast finishers with other fast finishers to do additional work, e.g. Think of three more questions and ask your
new partner.
Rewarding fast finishers with something ‘fun’ to do (such as playing a game or using digital applications) should be avoided, as this will encourage
pupils to work quickly, rather than to work carefully at their own speed. Extension tasks should extend and enrich learning.

17
Secondary Form 3 Scheme of Work
Strategy 6: Differentiate by supporting individual learning preferences and needs
When appropriate, you can support preferences by letting pupils make choices about what they do and how they do it. Sometimes, for example,
pupils decide for themselves which tasks they want to do (e.g. the type of writing task they complete or a revision game), depending on the ways
they prefer to learn or topics they find interesting.
Different pairings and groupings will allow pupils to work in different ways – you can sometimes pair up pupils who can help and support each
other (e.g. one who can write and one who cannot yet write well) or who enjoy working together. It is good to avoid grouping more proficient
pupils and less proficient pupils together all the time. Vary the interactions as this will allow all pupils to benefit from different dynamics. Sometimes
you might want to mix girls and boys, or have single-sex pairs/groups.
In some tasks, pupils can be assigned different roles to do, for example a group manager, writer or artist. You should make sure to vary pairing
and grouping over time.
You can support needs by setting individual tasks and targets for pupils based on assessment. This works well for reading and writing work in
particular. For example, you might decide on a writing target for each child; if a pupil is not yet a proficient writer, you can provide them with
different tasks from those pupils who can already write effectively. If a few pupils are proficient writers, they could be given extension tasks. For
reading, pupils can be encouraged to keep a reading log (including notes on what they have read, the content of the text, whether they enjoyed
it or not etc.). This works well as more proficient pupils can include much more detail and record greater numbers of texts.

Strategy 7: Differentiate by the types of question asked


Closed questions are questions in which the choice of possible answers is very limited. They often involve very short responses. Open questions
usually have more possible answers, and longer responses. Asking closed questions to less proficient pupils (e.g. Why did dinosaurs die? A
disease or a natural disaster?) gives them a chance to produce accurate answers, as they are usually easier to answer than open questions.
Asking open questions to more proficient pupils (e.g. What should we do if there was a natural disaster like a flood?) provides extension
challenge. As less proficient pupils grow in confidence and competence, you can ask them more open questions. Sometimes there are also good
reasons for asking more proficient pupils easier questions, as this involves them in the lesson and can help the pace of the lesson too.

18
Secondary Form 3 Scheme of Work
Strategy 8: Differentiate by the feedback given
Feedback given to pupils should be varied according to their ability to act on the feedback. For example, if a pupil who is currently less proficient
at writing has tried hard and produces work with a number of misspellings, feedback can be given on what they did well, and only 1 – 3 misspellings
of common or important words highlighted. The pupil should respond to this feedback because the suggested improvement is achievable for
them. If a more proficient pupil writes well and makes 2 misspellings, you can tell them the lines in which the misspellings are, and ask them to
find and correct them.
You can use a correction code for written tasks, e.g. have a set of symbols or letters which identify errors (T - mistake with tense; Sp - mistake
with spelling, WW – mistake with word choice etc.). More proficient pupils could use the correction key and find their errors. These pupils should
be able to respond to the extension challenge built into this feedback. The same principle could also apply to giving feedback on pupils’ speaking.

Summary
It is extremely important that teachers are aware that a pupil’s proficiency in English is not fixed and because a pupil is c urrently less proficient
in English, this does not mean in any way that this will remain true throughout a pupil’s secondary education. It is important that all pupils are
challenged and given equal opportunity to develop over time. There has been a considerable amount of research recently into the subject of the
‘growth mindset’ which looks at, amongst other things, how teacher feedback can impact on a pupil’s development over time. Further information
on the ‘growth mindset’ can be found at: https://www.mindsetworks.com/science/

peer-assessment Involving pupils in the process of assessment by asking pupils to give feedback to a peer on specific aspects of their learni ng,
such as a specific aspect of the quality of a piece of work. For example, when a pupil gives feedback to another pupil on an
aspect of their learning, the feedback takes the form of two things that were good (stars) and one area for improvement (wish).

probing questions Questions that aim to dig deeper than the surface (e.g. Is there a different way to say the same thing? / What would you say
instead (of…)? / Does anyone agree/disagree with that? Why?)

self-assessment Involving pupils in the process of assessment by asking pupils to self-assess specific aspects of their learning. For example,
learning diaries kept by pupils can reveal areas that need clarification or specific skills that need further development

talk partners Providing pupils with an opportunity to talk through their ideas with a partner or in a small group. When teachers give pupil s time
to discuss their ideas with a partner or in a small group, they can assume that everyone in the class is ready to provide an
