Adolescent / Erd Kinder
“The Greatest Gifts We Can Give Our Children Are the Roots Of
Responsibility And The Wings of Independence”
The adolescent program feeds the need to learn math, science, humanities and language work they do in the classroom to translate into what they need in their daily life through experiential learning. This program allows children to see their own role in everything, they are active doers, not passive watchers or listeners.
This curriculum focuses on three factors, Academic development which is combined with opportunities for real-world experience, through seminars and group discussions which help them to express their ideas and delve into deeper specific academic areas and the second factor is the Creative expression learning is not restricted only to academics, other forms like art, music, writing, drama which is a part of their curriculum. The final one, Occupational training which prepares children to the real world. The curriculum incorporates life skills and we at Sarvvam provide carpentry, sewing, food preparation, microeconomy, and farming as part of their curriculum. The unique feature of this program is engaging science concepts with practical real-world way, involvement in community service projects.
We believe education should not be restricted and restrained to academics within four walls. Learning to contribute to society is part of the curriculum, where the adult plays the role of a mentor and allows an opportunity for the child to explore the real world.
Occupation refers to the plan of study for adolescents which is based on their immediate environment and follows a genuine inquiry. [Inquiry-based learning]. They are interdisciplinary projects, with clear goals, that encompass the basic elements of academic study needed in the area and a ‘hands-on’ approach to solving it which benefits the entire community.
Humanities projects help build in the adolescent foundations of the culture that are needed to become a contributing member of society. This encompasses many subject areas with some common elements of history and language. As all human culture is a study of the story of humans finding ways to meet their needs, all subjects grow out of it.
Micro economy deals with the introduction to production and exchange. It introduces to the adolescent the first glimpse into the economic value their work holds for others.
Community service deals with the adolescents actually taking care of the environment for the benefit of the whole community. T his is done through daily and weekly chores that are needed for the functioning of the place This is a key element, being able to contribute to the whole community and knowing a particular chore needed one’s input to be accomplished gives adolescents the true feeling of being a valued member of the community. This also includes service learning outside of the immediate environment. Sustained interaction with the larger community and finding their individual ‘worth’ in society is crucial to the adolescent’s self-perception and personality. This section has a strong focus on inclusivity and acceptance of self and others.
Self-expression plays a large role in the creation of the character and personality. It also identifies for the adolescent the ‘self ‘he/she is searching for. Through expressing his/her ideas, emotions he/she builds his/her self-image and finds his/her uniqueness.
Riding is one of the skill developments that the child learns from the horse and horse learns from the child.
