Future Researchers Interacted with Dr. Harfouch via Skype and Inquired into Digital Divide - High School

27 January 2015

 

 

Though conducting research is considered a challenging experience to high school students, it is highly rewarding and advantageous since it enables students to embark on a sophisticated inquiry mission that sharpens their critical thinking skills on the personal and social levels. Under Unit 1 conceptual lens of “divide”, Grade 11 students have explored the historical aspects of divide in American literature, mastered online research skills and tracked a number of reliable primary and secondary resources to find credible answers to their inquiries on the current divide in the fields of education, social interactions, economy, and family ties. Aspiring authenticity and credibility, we held a Skype Conference with Dr. Antoine Harfouch, a Lebanese professor at Paris Ouest Nanterre La Defense University and at Paris Dauphine University. It is worth mentioning that Dr Harfouch coordinates the Information Systems course at EDHEC (business school). He is considered an expert in the field of divide since he has recently conducted a research entitled “Antecedents of the Digital Divide in Lebanon”, so conferring him was valuable since he is a primary source that quenched our students’ thirst for knowledge. He supplied students with up-to-date information about their country and the world and raised many questions that motivated students to launch another journey of quest in order to attain deep understanding of the topics and come up with a research paper that reflects their profound knowledge and “inquisitive” profile.

Attention! Live Footage in the Streets of Beirut - High School

19 January 2015

 

 

Have you ever tried to get away with something while you were in your car thinking that no one will be spying on you? Well, let us tell you that you are mistaken since Lebanon actually cares about road safety! On Thursday, Dec. 18, the Road Safety Committee went to Beirut to meet Captain Michel Moutran, the chief of the Traffic Control Center, with whom we first met on Twitter. Since we barely had an idea on what we might encounter, all our classmates were amazed as we entered that control room, where we recognized rows of computers with viewing cameras. At the far end of the room stand surveillance TV sets, all previewing live footage of what’s happening in the streets of Beirut. We observed an officer working on one of the PCs and witnessed him maintaining multiple traffic lights according to the amount of traffic occurring on a specific street. All this footage is stored and kept highly confidential, in case needed as evidence of an accident of some sort. Therefore, if you ever get in an accident that you try to escape from, you will eventually have to deal with the consequences since you will be caught on tape! We also discussed road safety issues in our community with the captain and came up with plans that can be easily implemented in the near future. We must say we were all astounded at the effort the Lebanese government has put to ensure road safety through the use of electronic surveillance system!

Grade 7 Performance Task on Peacemaking- Middle School

12 January 2015

 

 

Challenge 20/20 is an Internet-based program that pairs classes at any grade level from schools in the U.S.A. with their counterpart classes in schools in other countries. Together, the teams try to find local solutions to one of 20 global problems. This year, HHHS adopted Challenge 20/20 whereby several global issues were divided among different grade levels in the middle school division. Peacemaking is one of the global issues that countries worldwide are struggling to attain; therefore, 7th graders were split into groups and given the opportunity to choose one conflict highlighting its social, academic, and economic effects on a country and recommending solutions to it. Not only did our students deeply tackle this issue, but they also had the chance of communicating with an international school- Columbia School; consequently, they enhanced their global awareness about conflicts and resolutions. Their creativity was reflected through the usage of different visual aids and scene making in the presentations they conducted as a final outcome of the project that strengthened their beliefs in the significance of peace around the globe.

Grade 6 Performance Task - Middle School

12 January 2015

 

 

NAIS Challenge 20/20 is a project that HHHS adopted this year whereby major global issues were tackled in different grade levels in the middle school division. The issue of “Biodiversity and Ecosystem Losses” was a concern for Grade 6 students, who inquired about the importance of sustaining biodiversity and became aware of the threats that the world has encountered due to ecosystem losses. Sixth graders communicated with American students from the partner Webb School in Tennessee and shared simultaneous concerns towards this global issue. After three months of rich input, our students were divided into heterogeneous groups whereby they had to choose one country, inquire about its biodiversity rate, and propose some solutions to this problem. The students’ varied presentations that were interactive and creative reflected their mastery of the concepts and their devotion to serious work.

Des lettres extraordinaires - Elementary School

24 December 2014

 

 

Les apprenants de la classe de grade 3 ont reçu des lettres de la part de ceux de la classe de grade 8, dans lesquelles ils leur ont posé en français, des questions à propos d’eux-mêmes et de leurs familles.
Avec un grand plaisir, les élèves du cycle primaire ont répondu, aux questions, en écrivant des lettres aux apprenants du gr8 et en éprouvant de la curiosité à les reconnaitre. Pour cela, ils sont allés à l’école complémentaire pour rencontrer leurs amis en gr8 et leur délivrer leurs réponses.
Cette activité était organisée dans le but de rendre l’apprentissage du FLE plus amusant et d’encourager les apprenants de Grade 3 à réaliser leur tâche de performance d’une manière motivante sous le thème «Qui nous sommes».

اللغة العربية - Middle School

20 December 2014

 

 

تشكّل اللّغة معجزة الفكر، فبها ننطق بأفكارنا، وهي أداة التّفاهم، ومحفظة التّراث وحافظة المفاهيم ومن خلالها تنتقل المعارف بين أبناء الأمّة الواحدة، ويتمّ التّقارب والتّفاهم ونقل ما يشاؤه الإنسان. وتبني اللّغة الأمّة وتحمي كيانها. وإن كانت للغة هذه الأهمّية، فاللّغة العربيّة لها الأهمية الكبرى لأنها معجزة العرب، فالله سبحانه وتعالى اختارها واصطفاها من بين اللّغات كلّها لكتابه المجيد، بالإضافة إلى أنّها أداة التّعارف بين ملايين البشر المنتشرين في أرجاء المعمورة، وهي ثابتة في أصولها، متجدّدة بفضل مرونتها. وقد عظّمها بعض المفكرين والأدباء والكتّاب قائلين بها ما لا يُقال، ومنهم: الفرنسي إرنست رينان الّذي قال: "اللّغة العربيّة بدأت فجأة على غاية الكمال، وهذا أغرب ما وقع في تاريخ البشر، فليس لها طفولة ولا شيخوخة ". كما عبّر الألماني فريتاغ عن أهمّيتها قائلاً:" اللّغة العربيّة أغنى لغات العالم".
انطلاقًا من أهمّية اللّغة العربية الّتي تتمتع بخصائص عديدة من ألفاظ وتراكيب وصرف ونحو وأدب وخيال وثراء لغوي، تعرّف المتعلّمون إلى أهمّية لغتهم الأم؛ فهي بحر واسع من المفردات والتّراكيب >>>MORE

Science in the Program of Inquiry - Preschool

17 December 2014

 

 

It was really a worth experience when we attended the IB Primary Years Programme workshop: “Science in the Programme of Inquiry” held at International College, Beirut, Lebanon in September 2014.
This workshop provided us with the opportunity to reflect on our practices as we teach science within the units of inquiry. This time, we looked at our program of inquiry from the lens of the five big ideas in science: Cycles, Systems, Dynamic equilibrium, Forces and Energy, and Adaptation and Evolution. These big ideas can be addressed in every transdisciplinary theme through the PYP key concepts and related concepts. Looking at our science content from this perspective also allows us to provoke scientific thinking and inquiry by integrating children’s literature. Teaching and learning through inquiry and using visible thinking routines that promote students’ inquiry support scientific thinking and the development of transdisciplinary skills in science as well.
Taking our learning further, we were eager to share our knowledge with PYP teachers at school. Our presentation took place on December 6, 2014. However, reflecting on our science curriculum will remain ongoing in order to ensure the continuous development of our science related practices to better address the five big ideas in particular and conceptual thinking in general.
