A curriculum to develop social awareness and creative thinking.
Presenting to adolescents a world full of meaning, bringing about a consciousness of the world they live in, developing a taste for culture & creativity, and to synthesize thinking are the ideals that we hold at ERSM.
7th & 8th grades (secondary I & ii)
At the time of puberty, the interest in humanity and the world at large awakens in the adolescent. The curriculum for grades 7 and 8 will meet this awakening. Students will study the great discoveries and inventions, which are the dawn of the modern scientific development.
They will discover the planetary world in relation to material and economic conditions.
The continued introduction of science through the observation of the basic phenomena is complemented by the introduction of chemistry in 7th grade and biology in 8th grade. Physics continues to unfold over these years, enabling teachers to integrate students' experiences to their knowledge of the human being. For example, the concepts of optics will be used to understand the functioning of the eye.
Moreover, the play that is acted out in the 8th grade will be the crowning experience of the class from Grade 1 to 8 and will favour the synthesis of the arts (speech , music, scenery, costumes ...).
Internships and practical experiences
Through workshops offered in schools, such as copper work, weaving, bookbinding and carpentry, we allow students to experience his action on matter by manoeuvres of professional quality.
