Junior Form Curriculum
Junior Form Liberal Studies provides opportunities for students to explore issues relevant to their living in a wide range of contexts. The coverage includes contemporary issues, media resources in simpler and easier context. It helps students to make connections among different disciplines, examine issues from a variety of perspectives, and construct background knowledge, relevant vocabulary and cultivate their logical thinking and skills in identifying the causal relationship. Meanwhile, project learning and various generic skills are integrated in the curriculum.
The implementation of project learning as one of the four key strategies in the curriculum reform of basic education to help students to achieve the goal of “learning to learn”, has enabled them to develop many skills for conducting enquiries. The open and flexible curriculum framework will be adopted at school as a part of students’ learning experience, thus equipping them with generic skills and helping them to connect knowledge from different fields.
