'SAVE' StudentsTN00605A1.gif (2512 bytes)

by  Ecology and Environment (English) Study Project  

A plan, successfully applied by some schools, to 'SAVE' the low-motivated students in their study of the English Language and other academic subjects.

Under the Ecology and Environment (English) Study Project, the students are creating their own interest in learning by doing research and making their own reports, or exhibitions, or videos, etc. They become self-motivated, not only in supporting the nature or environment protection, but also in studying English as a media to publish their findings.

The study project consists of our provision of teachers (NET or local) and course materials to train your students in 3 to 6 months (about 20 hours' program) to do research and field study, and enhance students' English in producing written study reports or exhibitions or other outputs.

The Ecology and Environment (English) Study Project works out according to:

1.  the Life-Wide Learning (Extending, Enriching, Enabling) as formulated by the Education Bureau,

2.  the need of New Senior Secondary Curriculum (Drama, Short Stories, Poems and Songs, Popular Culture, Workplace Communication, Sports Communication, Debating, and Social Issues)

3.  the resources and support from the HK Wetland Park of Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department

Some outputs of students' study project already done by some schools can be viewed throughWetland park logo(1).jpg (9100 bytes)


Study projects can be sustainable every year. Their reports can be uploaded onto the internet.

Therefore, more exposure and recognition in an international platform will be entertained by students.
