Senior - Wing Curriculum and Pedagogy
“Learning is a lifelong process, it must be sought for with ardour and attended to with diligence”
K.R.Mangalam World School follows the curriculum mandated by India’s Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE). The Senior School follows the 21 st Century Skills of 4Cs in its approach towards teaching – Excellence through enhanced Communication, Collaboration, Creativity and Critical Thinking in sync with the motto of the school ENGAGE. LEARN. INNOVATE. Through the use of cutting edge technology and innovative practices students are promoted towards independent thinking and learning.
Classes IX to XII comprises the Senior School catering to the age group of 14-18 years. The school follows a 5-day week schedule with school timings from 07:50 a.m. to 2:15 p.m.
The Senior School curriculum enhances critical thinking skills through observation and self-reflection. Assignments are designed based on Bloom’s Taxonomy, focusing on problem-solving through analysis, evaluating options and arriving at plausible solutions. It encourages decision making and aims at creating
global citizens and leaders of tomorrow. We also use the flipped classroom approach, where students watch instructional videos and read relevant material on their own, and use class time to practise applying concepts and working in small groups with the teachers.
The pragmatic approach combined with a variety of activities like Project Based Learning, Experiential Learning, Excursions, and Student Exchange Programs, aid better understanding and makes learning productive. The faculty acts as a guide and facilitator for all team-based projects and group discussions, making students independent logical thinkers.
The National Education Policy 2020 has affirmed that competency-based learning is integral to develop the creative and critical thinking capacities of students to meet the challenges of the 21st century proactively. It emphasises on equipping students with problem-solving skills, analytical skills, and conceptual clarity.
