Teaching & Learning
The Raffles classroom fosters a passion for lifelong learning through the following approaches:
- Authentic: Draws on real-world knowledge of local and global contexts
- Learner-centred: Encourages active participation, exploration, discovery and collaboration among learners
- Process-focused: Emphasises ways of thinking and the development of disciplinary skills in the various fields
- Integrative: Builds on the inter-connectedness of ideas across disciplines
Hence, teaching and learning here is always Learner-Centred, Teacher-Facilitated with continuous feedback and support.
The videos below depict typical scenes in an RGS classroom of how these principles are applied.
