While books may prove to be stepping stones, but the relevant meaningful learning comes from the real world. Phenomena occur everyday that delve into new horizons and perspectives. Everything in the world today is contextual, based on interpretation and circumstances.
The World Academy lays emphasis on building the understanding in their students of the world around them instead of passing on information. The classroom teaching learning is structured around relevant contextual issues and solutions are designed through collaboration. The students engage in research and dialogue in the class with their peers and mentors while constructing their understanding of the world.
Real World CurriculumTM is broadly classified into the following, all of which students at the World Academy go through:
Contextual knowledge of subjects such as Mathematics, Sciences, Humanities and Commerce. The learning standards are designed after studying the various curricula of the national and international boards and contextualized to the learners needs.
Learners are encouraged to question, share and express their ideas and views. Ideas are shared and discussed and analysed before reaching a conclusion.
Creativity is not taught but is inherent in all. It is important to provide space to the learners to explore their inherent talents and to nurture it further and that is what our classrooms do.
The learners are put in situations that enables them to analyse, evaluate, explain and restructure their thinking. They learn to build perspectives and different viewpoints.
Learners are assigned tasks that are worked through projects and group work. Interdependence is encouraged while the students are also developed into independent learners.
A better understanding of how our world functions by understanding relevant topics in Economics, Politics, History, Religion, Geography and Culture.
The approach of the Real-World Curriculum is on Problems, Projects and Questions versus the traditional school curriculum approach of Facts, Skills and Disciplines. This approach reflects itself in the delivery of content in the school. Teachers create challenges and interesting questions for students to discover answers to. The questions and challenges are real-life situations that students would eventually face in their lives. Students are constantly involved in doing projects that would let them utilise their learnings.
