One of the hallmarks of a Northbridge International School Cambodia education is our focus on inquiry in our instructional processes. Students at every level are provided the opportunities to deeply explore concepts and practice inquiry based skills like communication, critical thinking, and investigation.
A visitor to any classroom in our Secondary Individuals and Societies Department will see the inquiry based teaching in practice. For example, in the Grade 10 I&S classes students are currently exploring the impacts of the Cold War and the ideologies of Capitalism and Communism on modern societies. Part of this exploration involved the students studying the process of land development for the use of biofuels in the country of Tanzania.
Students designed questions, researched case studies, and in the end debated the decision of the Tanzanian government to sell village lands throughout the country to biofuel developers from the United Kingdom. At the end of the exploration they reflected on how the case study of Tanzania connected to the Global Context of Sustainability and Development.
Finally, they brainstormed together the ways in which the debate over whether or not land should be used for private use and profit or only for the local society reflects the historical tensions between Capitalist and Communist ideologies of the past.
