SRV International School is dedicated to fostering real-life connections through inquiry-based learning. By integrating the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into the curriculum, students are encouraged to explore and address global challenges authentically. Through this approach, the school nurtures a deep understanding of the SDGs and equips students with the critical thinking and problem-solving skills needed to make a meaningful impact in the world.
In the Unit of Inquiry, student self-reflection plays a pivotal role. It empowers students to introspect and evaluate their learning journey, identifying strengths, areas for growth, and personal connections to the subject matter. Through self-reflection, students develop metacognitive skills, fostering a deeper understanding of their own learning process and promoting a sense of ownership over their education. This practice cultivates lifelong learning habits and enhances their ability to apply knowledge meaningfully.
In the Unit of Inquiry, teacher reflection is a fundamental aspect of reflection to feed forward. Teachers critically assess the effectiveness of the teaching-learning strategies, curriculum design, and student engagement methods. This introspective process enables them to refine their approaches, adapt to students' needs, and enhance the overall learning experience. By analyzing outcomes, and identifying successes, and areas for improvement, teachers continually evolve their teaching techniques, ensuring that each Unit of Inquiry optimally nurtures students' intellectual growth and inquiry skills
At the conclusion of a unit, parent reflection provides a valuable perspective on their child's educational journey. Parents assess their child's progress, the unit's impact on their understanding, and the relevance of the content. This insight informs parents about their child's development, allowing for informed discussions and support at home. Parent reflections also foster a deeper connection to the school's curriculum, encouraging collaborative learning and reinforcing the significance of the educational partnership between home and school.
