What is a Unit?

A Unit is a collection of lessons (Topics), displayed in a teacher interface, for the purposes of planning and delivering language to a classroom. The classroom lessons (Topics) may have ‘tech’ activity sequences for the student to complete on their device, or may be directed solely to teachers. Each component of the lesson can be aligned to the national curriculum and include areas for assessment.

Click on ‘Units’ in the ‘Teacher resources’ menu to access a list of available units.

Click on the ‘Eye’ icon (right side of page) to preview the unit in the teacher interface.

The below image is an example of a Unit, displayed in the Teacher interface.
