TEACHING METHODOLOGIES

In the process of imparting knowledge and honing skills for the students, the international teachers at SNA Marianapolis integrate various advanced teaching methods to enhance students’ understanding and retention, as well as facilitate the application of learned knowledge into real-life situations. Below are some of the methods our teachers employ in their lessons.

  • Project-based Learning (PBL) revolves around immersing in practical projects aimed at addressing real-life issues. Rather than passively absorbing information, students actively engage by delving into subjects of their interest, brainstorming innovative solutions, and putting their ideas into action.
  • Interdisciplinary Approach involves integrating multiple disciplines or subject areas into a cohesive learning experience. It emphasizes connections between different fields of study, allowing students to see how concepts, skills, and perspectives from various disciplines intersect and complement each other, fostering a holistic understanding of complex issues.
  • Learning by Doing is an experiential learning approach where students learn through active engagement in real-world tasks or activities. Students actively participate, experiment, and apply concepts in practical contexts, which enhances their understanding and retention of knowledge.
  • Teamwork Time refers to dedicated periods during the learning process where students collaborate in groups to achieve specific learning objectives or complete tasks. It provides opportunities for students to develop teamwork skills, communication, and problem-solving abilities while working towards common goals, fostering a cooperative learning environment.
  • Reflection Station is a designated space or activity where students engage in self-reflection and metacognition to deepen their understanding of learning experiences. It may involve journaling, discussion prompts, or guided questions to help students reflect on their learning process, achievements, challenges, and areas for growth, fostering self-awareness and continuous improvement.
