Opening 2018 at Amun Shea with fun and games!
Starting off 2018 with fun and games- bubbles
Fun and games are actually techniques and applications for Problem Based Learning (PBL). The 2018 school year just began at Amún Shéa Center for Integrated Development and we are back with new techniques to deepen our PBL program. Our teachers just went through an intensive training course and we begin the year with a focus on “The Production and Implementation of Creative Ideas”.
Personal leadership (because before leading others we must learn to guide ourselves), creative communication and scientific experimentation are the key components to be introduced and developed as fundamental to this focus.
To fully implement this year’s focus, we have organized our PBL program into three main areas: Physics, Biology, and Art and Communication. This will actually mean much less “classroom time” and much more experimentation. The greenhouses, fish growing tanks, vegetable garden, laboratory and other installations increasingly become our classrooms.
Innovative and relevant education towards building a hub of development in Morazán is our goal. This is only possible with your financial help, as we are working in one of the economically depressed areas in El Salvador. Please share this with family and friends. We greatly appreciate your support for this project. A special thank you to those with recurring monthly donations, something we can count on and look forward to receiving.
