HSC Humanities | A global citizen in quest of truth and empathy for Man and Nature
The Humanities Department sees the curriculum not just as a platform for teaching academic content and skills, but also as a pivotal vehicle for character-building, social-emotional learning and National Education.
Our students are engaged through learner-centered lessons that are inquiry driven; experiential learning through local and overseas learning journeys and geographical/historical investigation projects, as well as the consistent use of Assessment for Learning (AfL) strategies.
In addition, elements of Differentiated Learning (DI) and Multiple Intelligences are adapted for use by our committed and innovative teachers. They also tap on students’ existing knowledge through effective questioning techniques, hence helping them see the connectivity to new learning, and encourage them to make their own conclusions, thereby building up their self-confidence. Students also engage in collaborative research- based projects on various topics to enrich their learning experiences, stimulate their thinking, cultivate their ability to articulate their thoughts, and promote team spirit.
One of the Department’s signature programmes is the annual Hai Sing Humanities Week held in Term 3 where we showcase our students’ projects and works, in addition to various fringe activities such as Jeopardy Quiz and Trails. In addition, our students also embark on experiential learning through our HEW learning journeys.
