Since the curriculum is one of the basic elements of effective teaching and learning, Manarat Riyadh International Schools adopt the idea of enriching the educational process with additional curricula (teaching skills) which aim to improve and enhance students’ performance and increase the effectiveness of learning as our top priority is to assist students to achieve their full potential.
Philosophy of Additional Curricula Selection
The design and objectives of the additional curricula (teaching skills) in Manarat Riyadh International School reflect the educational philosophy – intentionally, the curriculum experts at our schools have developed these curricula to build a variety of educational and cognitive methods such as project-based learning which includes different life and cognitive strategies and skills through which students work on multi-faceted projects known as (discoveries).
How Additional Curricula are Taught and Followed ?
The teachers at Manarat Riyadh International School have been trained to teach these curricula alongside the basic curricula and create effective educational services and support which enhances students’ learning in the context of general education and beyond.
Our Additional Curricula Teachers work on:
Teaching science and mathematics curricula as advanced curricula that encourages learning with understanding
Linking new knowledge to what is already known by introducing concepts in a logical order that builds on previous learning within and across grade levels
Focusing on depth of understanding rather than widening content coverage by providing students with multiple opportunities to practice and demonstrate what they learn in a variety of contexts.
Designing learning activities models, in a real or imitated way, that allow students to experience problem-solving and inquiry in situations derived from their personal experience and real-world applications
Linking and integrating between the disciplines has provided students with opportunities to link learning at school with the issues and experiences which appear prominently in their lives outside the classroom.
