How Does Our Curriculum Work?
Our classes are designed to be a part of the momentum that drives their life upward. In short, our program is like giving an extra tool kit for your child to stand out in a group of peers who excel in the same set of STREAM (Science Technology Robotics Engineering Arts Math) skills. Our curriculum is divided into three series – Engage, Energize and Empower.
The ENGAGE Series
The Engage series aims to turn children into curious learners by introducing them to interesting ideas. Instead of staying hidden in the crowd children learn to build a sense of engagement and purpose in their thoughts and actions.
The ENERGIZE Series
The Energize series aims to inspire children to identify and build on their strengths. Children learn to become autonomous, take ownership of their choices and become dependable performers.
The EMPOWER Series
The Empower series is designed to transform children into high achieving adults. Children learn to find happiness and meaning in contribution, find the root of their problems and learn to overcome them.
What Is Our Teaching Methodology?
At Future STRONG, we don’t believe in telling children what to do. Instead, we guide them with open ended questions and prompts that help them reflect on their thoughts, find new perspectives and enable them to perform self guided actions.
I - The Method
At Future Strong we teach children concepts like confidence and communication skills through small group role-playing exercises formulated by a panel of experts of early childhood development certified teachers, social psychologists and counselors.
II - The Execution
Our tools are language and emotion and our environment is alive with people, ideas and situations. We offer after school programs with small classroom sizes. We also offer in-person individualized learning plans and crash courses if your child wants to develop a particular skill.
III - The Impact
As our children work towards tangible goals, you will find them giving elevator pitches of their interests, their ideas and their goals. The assessments they complete will show you the depth of their knowledge, leaving your children with lessons learnt outside of school that last a lifetime.
What skills will children learn?
In a world where super-intelligent machines built by us are dictating our emotions and predicting our desires, we must raise our children to deal with unpredictable change and process information overload. With tools that develop mental flexibility and emotional balance, we can ensure that they learn to listen to themselves first and use their power to choose with integrity and responsibility.
Here are the skills that children will learn at Future STRONG.
Why Do Children Need These Skills?
Our children need more than Aptitude skills to become great professionals. Employability Skills, like collaboration, team work and negotiation will help them shine in work place and in real life. Having a great attitude, a confident communication style and a value system can enable them to live up to their complete potential.
Here are the 6 areas of personal and communal life that need to be in harmony:
Our Class Structure
At Future STRONG our curriculum has no textbooks, no tests and no wrong or right answers. Our class structure includes discussing the topic of the week in the form of stories, questions and worksheets to reinforce values, critical thinking and enrichment of character. Every class we teach has a unique take away – it equips the child to take a new thinking approach to learning.
Here are the contents of our classes.
This is a brief introduction of the topic to set the intention of what the class is about. This will tell the children what they will be able to know, do and understand at the end of the class.
This interactive session will help children think about the topic in the form of questions. As we brainstorm, children will be able to quantify their learning in the form of answers.
Stories give us the “why” for what we do with our lives. Unlike facts and figures, concepts told in the form of stories have the ability to stick with us and are truly our life long lessons.
During the lesson, students will collaborate in groups of three or more to solve problems in real life scenarios. This will help them put into practice the depth of their understanding of the topic.
Relevant thought exercises can help children comprehend difficult concepts. At the end of each lesson, children will fill out a worksheet that shows their understanding about the topic.
Homework will require children to put their comprehension into life long application. Because attitude, discipline and instinct can only be measured through actions and experience.
What makes human potential COMPLETE?
We believe that human potential has two aspects, a skill set for professional excellence – aptitude, and a tool kit for personal excellence – the right attitude needed to face real life, something that the curriculum at Future STRONG equips our children with.
