In our English and Global Citizenship Module, we use Stanford Mobile Inquiry-based Learning Environment (SMILE), which is a collaborative learning system that develops a high level of thinking in the process of freely asking and answering questions through the creative discussion.

In our Global Citizenship Module, we read the books from the 1001 Stories Project. 1001 Stories facilitates the creation of empowering stories from underserved local communities, and allows children’s creative voices to be heard while developing their literacy skills.
We use film clips, Youtube videos, and other outside sources to supplement the curriculum and further engage our students.
