Sec.4Q 2011 Integrated Humanities


Introduction

Dear Students,

This website is set up for you as part of the Future School initiative to introduce a more participative and dynamic learning environment.

Although the topics in the Modern World History and the Social Studies syllabi remains unchanged, the methods of instruction, learning activities and modes of assessment have changed to accommodate a more personal style of learning.

Likewise, students must change their learning styles and learning attitudes accordingly in order to learn better in this new environment.

Hence, students must be independent to check on the website regularly. You should not only respond to the lessons posted but also to initiate new posts by themselves and to challenge each other in their search for understanding of the topics.

Occasionally, extension activities will be included so that students can build upon the formal lessons and develop renewed interest in learning more about the subject than what has been taught in class.
