Social Studies ‘O’ Level Tuition Programme Overview
Social studies is a compulsory subject for humanities in secondary school and carries a equal (50%) weighting in contribution to the O Level Examination assessment format.
Drawing on aspects of society that are of meaning and interest to the students, our Social Studies Tuition programme seeks to ignite students’ curiosity to inquire into real-world issues that concern their lives. Through inquiry and authentic learning experiences, we aim to help students attain relevant knowledge and understanding about these issues, develop critical and reflective thinking skills, and appreciate multiple perspectives.
Ultimately, this programme seeks to inculcate in students a deeper understanding of the values that define the Singapore society, nurture dispositions that will inspire them to show concern for the society and the world they live in, and demonstrate empathy in their relationships with others.
Skills imparted in our programme
Our tuition programme curriculum content is organised around three Issues and is anchored in a set of Knowledge, Skills and Values Outcomes. The three Issues correspond to societal issues that have been shaping Singapore society and the world and were selected with these considerations in mind
1. the need to respond to the ‘new diversities’ in society.
2. the need to strengthen the heart of an economically vibrant nation.
3. the need to grow an informed, concerned and participative citizenry.
The knowledge, skills and values acquired through a study of these Issues will enable students to enrich and deploy their competencies to respond to real world issues and in the process, strengthen their values as citizens.
