  • Supporting measures

Teaching: lesson preparation, lesson observation and sharing, etc.

Small Class Teaching

Objectives:

  • Increased focus on student-centered and interactive learning approach, e.g. teacher-student and student-student interaction.
  • Increased care given to individual differences in learning
  • Enhanced support for students’ growth

Class arrangements:

Six classes in each level.

S.1-3: 26 to 28 students in each class

S.4-6: 26 to 30 students in each class

Lesson Preparation

Students finish the pre-lesson preparation tasks according to the teachers’ instructions. Then, the tasks are either marked by the teachers before class, or shared and discussed by students in class. With the constructive feedback provided by teachers, students’ learning effectiveness is therefore enhanced.

Objectives:

  • To use knowledge gained in the pre-task to help students construct new knowledge
  • To enhance students’ enthusiasm for learning; arouse “curiosity”; provide students with learning expectations; and allow them to learn in a problem-solving way
  • To strengthen the interaction in class, which allows students to become more engaged

Collaborative Teaching


Collaborative teaching emphasizes the mutual learning and interaction among colleagues. Teachers of the same subject and same level jointly design teaching plans and solve teaching problem. Teaching effectiveness is enhanced.

Objectives:

  • To establish a mutual learning, mutual support and reflective learning atmosphere among teachers
  • To establish a valuable teaching material database
  • To enhance teaching effectiveness

Facilities:

1. Campus Flora
2. Orchard
3. Ecological Pond
