Integrated Humanities (IH) is a junior grade subject under the key learning area of Personal, Social and Humanities Education (PSHE).
Students will be able to understand and develop knowledge and skills about the issue-enquiry approach and curriculum, to develop higher order thinking, plan their own process of learning and seek their own answers, and to develop multiple perspectives on controversial issues in daily life. Students will nurture a reading habit in various areas of Integrated Humanities. They will develop the generic skills, demonstrate a global perspective and understand their rights and responsibilities in society and environment. They will have a healthy personal development, and are able to relate harmoniously with others.
Through an issue-based approach and incorporation of current affairs, daily life examples and world-wide scenarios, the teaching and learning activities are highly interactive, interesting and flexible.
