3. Subject Content
Stage 1-Age 2-6 (Golden Foundation):Students will build a solid foundation in Basic Interactive Communication Skills(BICS).
Stage 2--Age 7-9(Objective Achievement):Students develop Cognitive Academic Language Proficiency (CALP) through acquisition of content reading.
Stage 3--Age 10-12(Competency Beyond):Students apply critical thinking skills in studies of all core curricula. They will continue to develop Cognitive Academic Language Proficiency (CALP), and demonstrate mastery in Common Core State Standards (CCSS).
Common Core State Standards(CCSS)
Best Learning English adopts mainstream elementary school textbooks developed by McGraw-Hill Education, which are entirely built upon the Common Core State Standards (CCSS).
The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) are one of the most significant initiatives in American education in the 21st century. The CCSS are developed in response to increasing demands and requirements for content knowledge and reading complexity in reading, math and science in entry-level college courses at universities across the country, including Ivy League schools such as Harvard University and Columbia University. We believe that all levels of students can (and should) engage in critical thinking. Language barriers and limited knowledge of subject matter should not restrict students from this important work. Critical thinking is a vital component to 21st century skills and the foundation to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS).
We care –two words pretty much sum up how Best Learning strives to serve its customers and treat its employees.
Being an after school language training institute, we care about the intellectual and emotional well-being of our each and every one of our students no less than their own day school. Character counts –knowledge and skills are merely wasted education without character. We believe the best way to foster wholesome characters is through actions of love and care in our every day teaching. We have formally adopted the Positive Behavior Support (PBS) system across our classroom, and seek to model appropriate behaviors and replace undesirable behaviors through positive reinforcement. Our teaching staff engages in various charity events to teach our students about the importance of citizenship and voluntarism.
We care about our employees. Best Learning is one of the very few businesses in China where foreign employees often outnumber local hires. Imagine a young, ambitious, and yet very personable working environment. Our foreign teachers usually build up very close ties with their students, parents, and colleagues. Beginning and intermediate Chinese courses are provided to our foreign teachers. For Chinese employees who would like to improve their English, the centers arrange for daily English classes and language partner programs. Besides, both Chinese and American professionals make up our highly committed HR team, who understand the nitty-gritty of moving to a new country and are quite efficient in helping foreign teachers navigate through the transition process by tackling problems such as visa, and housing assistance.
