Skills for Success, an update!

As you know our skills for success program focuses on 5 essencial skills we believe all our students should have. These are our updates on each of them:

 

Emotional Intelligence:

Talks have been given to adolescent students and their parents to provide some tools that will allow them to manage the pressures and challenges of the pandemic and reduce cases of drug addiction, violence and early pregnancy.


Spanish literacy / English language competency:

  • Spanish: The program for the most part was suspended due to the pandemic. In the primary schools and the secondary school, efforts have been made to promote reading in students, mainly by sending reading material home and assisting children through phone calls, giving readings assisted by WhatsApp and giving sporadic personal tutorials. In highschool, students are encouraged to practice their reading and writing skills through the Zunun platform.
  • English: The effectiveness of the Dual Immersion program has been greatly reduced. English classes are carried out through reading and writing assignments. The lack of volunteers diminishes the direct contact our students had with the english language.


Math and Science: 

Our main vehicle for transferring these skills -PBL (Project Learning) - is currently suspended in all three schools.

 

Arts, Culture and Identity Skills:

Activities for developing these skills have been reduced to reading assignments and student reporting. 


Digital Citizenship Skills:


Parents in general have reached high levels of conviction about the benefits of the use of technology in the delivery of content and personalized assistance to students.
Teachers in the secondary/highschool have acquired important skills in delivering content through social networks such as WhatsApp and Facebook; and platforms like Google Meet, Classroom, and Zoom.
In high school all teachers have been trained in the use of educational platforms. The students have already gotten used to working with these tools and have begun a journey towards their academic leveling.
