CALVERT COURSE FEATURES
In AES, our ESL courses help the students develop their fundamental abilities to read, write and speak English, so as to engage in the studies of the Calvert courses. In the Calvert program, the students in Taiwan will learn various subjects such as math, geography, social studies, science, etc---all in English, just like the students in America.
WHAT CALVERT PROVIDES
Each teacher has their own set of detailed Lesson Manuals that give direction and support to ensure that every student will realize his or her full potential. Each student will be given their own set of textbooks, workbooks, reading books and supplies according to each grade level. In addition, Calvert students will be given access to online lessons and activities provided by the Calvert Program.
HOW THE CALVERT PROGRAM WORKS IN AES
Calvert’s time-tested school curriculum is built on the principle of subject integration. For instance, while students are learning about a plant’s life cycle in Science, they are reading about Seasons in Language Arts and discussing Geography by comparing plants and weather in different places. The Calvert program starts with a rich foundation of reading, writing, and arithmetic. That foundation is then layered with history, science, music, geography, and the arts to ensure no gaps in instruction.
