Students at GISW are taught using the method curriculum from fifth through tenth grade. This curriculum teaches the students skills which are not limited to the individual subjects in which they are taught, but also facilitate the students’ overall learning and enriches their education in general. The methods are incorporated into learning exercises which are practiced in each of the different subject areas:
o German: reading comprehension, marking, structuring
o Math: time management, learning and retention
o NaWi: Class work, visualization, i.e. with learning posters and journal design
o Spanish / French: methods of foreign language teaching
o History / Computer Science: information retrieval using books and new media
o Art / Computer Science: poster design (as opposed to learning posters)
o Class Officers: team development
o German / Social Studies: rhetorical foundations, techniques of a successful presentation
An Example of This Training Method in the Tenth Grade:
The training focuses on the practical use of various speech and conversational situations (such as speech, lectures, discussions, debates) under rhetorical aspects. Within the training days appropriate situations will be prepared and tested. The various presentations are, inter alia, accompanied by video footage and then evaluated. The aim of the training days is the development of a theoretical framework and the production of practical conversational histories which will improve and cement the language skills of our students.
