New Senior Secondary Curriculum (NSS)
As the NSS curriculum is implemented, many teachers are seeking ways to help students engage in meaningful, curriculum-related activities. While Crossroads’ experiential programmes connect to all aspects of the NSS, teachers have shown particular interest in those relevant to Liberal Studies, OLE, English and Life-Wide Learning.
Many of the simulations connect directly to Liberal Studies modules. Curriculum support material, with pre- and post- lesson plans, is also available for some of our more popular programmes.
Volunteer service opportunities are available in support of the OLE objectives.
Although many x-periences are available in Chinese, many language teachers prefer the English option, since it offers students use of the language in an environment where it is naturally spoken.
Many of the programmes at Crossroads also help to encourage the concept of life-wide learning.
