European International School

How are we to accomplish this?

  • To meet this objective while, at the same time, maintaining academic demands, we need to constantly innovate and incorporate new methodologies that enable us to move further, towards the personalisation of learning.

methodologies

What will we do to achieve this?

  • To promote this methodological change, time management is crucial within the classroom, and hence, the importance of the timetable model chosen.

Why the rotating schedule model?

  • Because it enables us ….
  • To apply different methodologies in the work sessions such as cooperative-collaborative work, Flipped classroom, Design Thinking or Project Based Learning (PBL), among others.

  • To balance and allow more time for those subjects that require more space, procedures and time (art, music, laboratories, physical education, technology).

  • To enable the teacher to segment the class session in order to attend to the different paces, dynamics and methodologies within a single session.

  • To regularly practise the acquired knowledge in the classroom, encouraging the pupil to do more in-class work, both individually and as part of the group.

  • To facilitate mentoring among peers, and with the teacher, on a regular basis.

  • To cater to the diversity of the student body, regardless of language or learning level.

  • To encourage interpersonal relationships and work on emotional development.

  • To enable working in a multi-intelligence scenario.

  • To enhance and consolidate personal skills such as critical thinking, resilience, empathy, adaptability, teamwork, communication, etc.

The time frame

  • rotating schedule
    This timetable is designed to respond to the needs of the programme, while maintaining some basic features, such as:
  • The same number of minutes and classroom sessions, per academic year.

  • The same schedule for arrivals and dismissals.

  • rotating schedule

    The same timing for breaks, lunch and extracurricular activities.

  • This rotating timetable model is at the service of the school’ s curricular programme and is characterised by two features: the days that make up the academic week and the minutes that make up the sessions.

35 sessions in a 7-day cycle

5 sessions a day

25-cycle academic year

175 school days

  • Timetable model according to the educational phase:

  • Throughout the Secondary stage:

  • The school year is distributed in 25 cycles of 7 days instead of the current 35 weeks of 5 days.

  • Five class-sessions per day and a 10-minute home room.

  • School hours: from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

  • Throughout the Baccalaureate, IA-Levels and AHS stage:

  • Students receive either 4 or 5 class periods per day (depending on the day and subjects chosen) and a 10-minute Home room.

  • School hours: from 8h to 15h10.

  • To drive this methodological shift forward, time management in the classroom is crucial, which is why the timetable model chosen is so important.
