As high school students in our ESL program reach upper years, they're assigned more critical thinking tasks and project-based assignments. Rather than being directly presented with content, students are invited to dig deeper into global and societal issues that affect the world around them and to reflect critically on their place in it, through research, discussion, analysis, and reflection. 

SHES Open House

Parents got to play the role of students at this year's open house, while students took on the role of teacher as they led their parents through various stations and activities. Let's see what they've been up to in ESL class this year!

Living in Taiwan during COVID-19 is…honestly, pretty normal.

 

These creative ESL students were challenged to showcase their collaboration, critical thinking, and story making skills by creating impromptu skits. In small groups, they worked together to plan their skits using their own creative writing books, including the characters, setting, and problem, as well as making props to help act out their stories - all in one day!
