High School Elective Critical Thinking Course

Changes happening within the system

After completing lecturer training program, lecturers will have the opportunity to enter high schools and vocational schools to lead elective courses for students.

Lead For Taiwan emphasizes creating a comfortable and open space for discussions, allowing high school students to experience interactive and question-based teaching methods within their schools. This encourages students to be more confident in expressing their ideas and inquiries. The course also provides students with more opportunities to communicate with others, collaborate on project preparations, learn teamwork, and practice their expressive abilities. As a result, students transition from merely receiving information to adopting a learning model that involves absorbing, digesting, selecting, and producing knowledge.
