  9. 9. The five Cs
  10. 10. The SBA is concerned with developing the following five areas: Communication Learners will communicate in both oral and written forms, interpret both oral and written messages, show cultural understanding and present oral and written information to various audiences for a variety of purposes .Three modes of communication are involved here: the interpersonal, interpretive, and presentational communication.
  11. 11. Culture Learners will gain deeper understanding of their culture(s) and other cultures in terms of their perspectives (e.g. values, ideas, attitudes, etc.), practices (pattern of social interactions), and products (e.g. books, laws, music, etc).
  12. 12. Connections Learners will make connections with other subject areas.
  13. 13. Comparison Learners will gain awareness of cross- cultural similarities and differences (in terms of both languages and culture).
  14. 14. Communities Learners will extend their learning experiences from the EFL classroom to the outside world through activities such as the use of the internet. They will therefore be made aware that they live in a global world..
  15. 15. Some characteristics of Standards-based classroom  Classroom climate is characterized by respectful behaviors, routines, and discourse.  Classroom practices and instruction honor the diversity of interests, needs, and strengths of all learners.  The teacher ensures that all components of the lesson (e.g., learning activities, assessment, homework) contribute to the lesson objectives and to student mastery of the standard(s).  Learning time is maximized for all students.  Instruction activates students’ prior knowledge and experience, and supplies background knowledge.  Students respond to opportunities provided by the teacher to make connections between the lesson and personal experience.
