Fundraising event: Outdoor Movie Night

High School - 16 June 2016

 

 

What is more emotionally rewarding than acting generously towards your community while having fun at the same time? On June 4, 2016, the HHHSMUN team applied this formula by organizing a fundraising event, an Outdoor Movie Night in the campus of Houssam Eddine Hariri High School. The event was about watching the movie, The Giver, during which there was also selling of snacks that the HHHSMUN team worked on preparing themselves.
This event came as a kind of contribution to support the HHHSMUN Program which works on organizing an annual MUN conference and its extended activities such as hands on activities which the team is planning to add to next year agenda.
Such a decision of holding this philanthropic event is a result of the team’s realization that it is essential to enrich and enhance the MUN experience to reach other social life aspects. The MUN is not just a conference or debate sessions about global issues. It is not just about awards and prizes.The MUN is about translating the United Nations vision which involves offering a helping hand to our surrounding and to be active members within our local and eventually our global community.
At the end of the day, the team felt the joy of contribution on many levels. They succeeded in holding an event which is rare for schools to hold due to its demanding preparations. They also acted as generous individuals who offered fun and support to the school community, an act which will resonate in other local contributions.

The Age of Realism: Profound Insights and Interactive Sessions - High School

15 June 2016

 

 

In his science fiction book “I Hope I Shall Arrive Soon”, Phillip K. Dick, an American novelist and short story writer best known for his science fiction short stories, commented on his belief towards reality by defining it in a peculiar way. Dick wrote, “Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away.” Bearing that in mind, Grade 11 teachers, Mrs. Zeina Dbouk & Mrs. Huda Kaeen, and I passionately started the journey of designing Grade 11 Literature Unit Planner of The Age of Realism. In that unit, students are expected to explore how America experienced rapid industrialization, urban growth and social change after the Civil War (Houghton Mifflin Company- Collections- 2015- USA). To reach the crafted generalizations, we commenced the unit with the following essential question, “What is worth realizing in our community?” and conducted several whole-classroom or group discussions where students shared their perspectives towards the unsentimental, bitterly ironic and often harsh or grotesque reality that humans might encounter and commented on the fact that socio- economic factors might affect the way people think, choose or act. One of the issues students showed much interest in discussing was the issue of drug abuse and its negative impacts on teenagers in particular. >>>MORE

Early People - Middle School

11 June 2016

 

 

Because authentic learning has always been the aim of HHHS teachers, Grade 6 students had the privilege to visit the “Frere Site” in Sidon to unleash the mysteries of archaeology and link it to their Social Studies lesson about “Early People”. Dr. Claude Serhal, who is currently a Special Assistant at the British Museum and has been directing the British Museum/Directorate General of Antiquities of Lebanon excavations in Sidon (Lebanon) since 1998, volunteered to guide our students through their rich journey and showed them the tools used, the extracted artifacts, and the museum which is under construction. This experience left a prominent impact on our students, and they certainly appreciated their city more once they learnt about its “hidden treasure”.

Grade 8 Third Annual Conference on Freedom of Expression and Speech

Middle School

9 June 2016

 

 

Women Empowerment, social inequality, child abuse, immigration and freedom of speech are among a list of many significant topics tackled by Grade 8 learners as an integral component of their Annual Conference. As a part of their syllabus and a culmination of the acquired attributes of this grade level, the learners enthusiastically prepare themselves for the big day, whereby they stand on stage to deliver their 90-second speech as representatives of countries illustrating their stands and practices towards the targeted topic. To enhance their readiness for that day, learners undergo a minimum of 20 training sessions on crafting and delivering the speeches, in addition to writing their position papers in the form of well-organized argumentative essays. Eighth graders passionately read about the suggested country’s position towards that issue, utilize their research skills and ICT to find reliable sources that enable them to defend their claims, intensify their information literacy in a way that would help develop the learners’ higher order thinking, learn to respect others’ perspectives, and finally collaborate in groups to accomplish artistic handicrafts that could reflect the heritage of the designated nations. >>>MORE

LAU Training Sessions on Writing Centers Sparked our Motivation to Establish HHHSWC

High School - 2 June 2016

 

 

April 13, 2016 marked the day when we heard about the Secondary School Writing Centers. During the first training session, the idea seemed quite peculiar and almost extraneous due to several obstacles that might obstruct the establishment of a writing center at secondary schools including the rigid schedules, the location and the competent personnel. Despite the negative vibes, the goal behind a writing center seems worth facing all the challenges. To start with, what is a writing center? A writing center is a place that offers students assistance on their papers, essays, research papers and projects by consultants. An integral goal of a writing center is to help writers to learn. Bearing this in mind, we became enthusiastic about establishing a writing center that greatly align with the school vision and started eagerly crafting its proposal. Since the school aims at enhancing the learners’ abilities to reason logically and think critically, use technology effectively, and understand the relationship between learning at school and its practical application in life, the writing center would foster the learners’ thinking, communication, self-management, social and research skills. >>>MORE

Empowering Teachers as Leaders through Mentoring, Peer Coaching and Planning  

School Activities - 31 May 2016

 

 

Sergiovanni and Staratt (2002) claimed that capacity building requires building teachers’ leadership, a critical mass of teachers who feel collectively empowered to engage in “the slow but exciting work of transforming the school into a better environment that enhances professionalism and promotes improved learning” (Sergiovanni & Staratt, 2002, p.156). Research has also found that “effective leadership” is accompanied with values such as empowerment, power distribution, innovation, communication and commitment towards shared decision making. From this standpoint, we make sure to prepare our teachers to be leaders through empowering them to take leadership roles. Our teachers were engaged in peer coaching as a relationship-based adult learning strategy intended to promote and support the teachers’ awareness and teaching practices and provide collegial support through reciprocal classroom visits. Another area for teachers’ empowerment includes interdisciplinary planning through preparing lessons in partnership with fellow teachers under the same unit that of civil war. >>>MORE

Power of Reading  - Preschool

31 May 2016

 

 

“If you want your child to be intelligent read them fairytales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairytales” Albert Einstein
Believing in the power of stories, we as teachers are fully dedicated to choose the most suitable stories and books for children. Reading stories helps children develop confidence, cope with different feelings, and develop language skills. Through imaginary games and storytelling, children are more likely to adapt to learning habits, develop their communication skills, and improve their vocabulary. Furthermore, stories help children learn about concepts such as shape, size, space and color, up and down, inside and outside, numbers and the names of objects.
This year, we, KG2 teachers, started a new unit on stories under the theme “How we express ourselves”. We arranged the physical environment to provoke inquiry, promote exploration and discovery, and allow students to synthesize, analyze and manipulate with different stories. The students had the freedom to explore different ways of telling a story or expressing a feeling. The learners used role-play to retell stories and they acted out scenes of their favorite characters. >>>MORE
