L&S,CS,LS

The Department of Life & Society

The Department of Citizenship & Social Development

The Department of Liberal Studies

The departments strives to foster students to become independent scholars with critical thinking and the ability to analyze contemporary issues in multiple perspectives; to cultivate students’ respect and appreciation towards various stakeholders in the society understanding their diversified cultures and demands; to facilitate students’ development on positive moral standards and values building up on the knowledge and concept for coping with the ever changing world in the future as responsible citizens in the society. Aligned with the medium of instruction of our school, English is used in both junior and senior form classes enabling a platform for the transfer of knowledge between different subjects and the connection to the global society.

Curriculum Information

Junior Curriculum 

S.1 to S.3 classes adopt a modular approach by introducing various modules in Life and Society curriculum, providing a solid knowledge foundation to students before their promotion to senior forms. Combined with learning and thinking skills, students will be equipped with both the fundamental concepts and skills for their senior secondary years. 

Senior Curriculum

Our senior form curriculum is based on HKDSE syllabus. A scaffolding approach is adopted to bridge the difference between junior forms and public assessment. Students will gradually develop their ability to handling public assessments and apply their knowledge and skills developed in S.1 to S.3.

Outside the Classroom

The Taiwan Leaning Trip jointly organized by the Visual Arts Department and the Liberal Studies Department: A group of senior form students had the opportunity to explore the other side of this city immersing themselves in the local streets and culture at Easter 2016.

 

Public Lectures, Workshops and Competitions: We encourage our students to develop a deeper understanding on specific topics by participating in public seminars, training workshops and inter-school competitions.

OLE Activities: To bring Liberal Studies into daily life, we organize visits to different organizations. Each S.4 and S.5 student will have the chance to join at least one outing activity throughout the year. Organizations visited in the past two years include:

Economics

The Department of Economics

Suggested by the popular Japanese anime ‘Fullmetal Alchemist’, the fundamental principle of alchemy is the “exchange of equal values”. Interestingly enough, this principle of alchemy somehow corresponds to an economic principle – whenever people want to satisfy their wants, they would have to make sacrifice. Such sacrifice refers to a core concept of economics – opportunity cost.

Economics is a very intriguing subject in a sense that its concepts and theories could be verified or applied in every aspect of daily life. By developing students’ basic economic knowledge and skills, and an awareness of different values, this subject will help them to make rational economic choices for their own lives and evaluate decisions made by different parties in society.

Curriculum Information

Senior Curriculum

 

  • To develop students’ knowledge and understanding about 

  1. fundamental economic theories, basic economic problems faced by every individual and society.

  2. the underlying considerations and forces in the economic decisions that need to be made by individuals, firms, institutions and governments.

​​

  • To develop students’ skills on

  1. interpreting economic information presented verbally, numerically or graphically.

  2. applying their economic knowledge to a variety of problems and issues in a range of economic contexts.

  3. analysing information through the use of economic concepts and theories.

  4. communicating economic ideas and informed judgements in a clear, logical and appropriate manner.

developing students’ value and attitude so that they may communicate economic ideas and informed judgements in a clear, logical and appropriate manner.

Outside the Classroom

Our department also actively seeks learning resources outside of classroom including workshops and seminars organised by external organisations. Our students are encouraged to participate in events, such as research competitions organised by the Hong Kong Association for Economics Education, Econschool, and the Youth Economic Forum co-organised by The Chinese University of Hong Kong and the Education Bureau, to broaden their horizons.

Geography

The Department of Geography

The Department of Geography aims to develop students’ knowledge and understanding of:

  1. how natural environments influence human activities, and how human activities impact on natural environments;

  2. the changing development of geographical phenomena and issues in terms of space and time;

  3. the characteristics of major natural environments and human activities through analyzing the processes and interactions with and between them.

  4. the importance of being active and responsible citizens.

Curriculum Information

Junior Curriculum

The junior curriculum is wide-ranging and topical. The core modules are Using Urban Space Wisely, Living with Natural Hazards and Food Problems. The elective modules are Changing Climate, Changing Environments and map reading skills.

Senior Curriculum

TTCA students taking Geography in their senior years will be studying a compulsory syllabus which includes Living with Our Physical Environment, Facing Changes in the Human Environment and Confronting Global Challenges. The electives available for students are Dynamic Earth and Weather and Climate.

Fieldwork-based study will also be covered in the learning and teaching of both the compulsory and elective parts.

In both junior and senior years, students are expected to develop:

  • geographical enquiry skills, including the ability to:

  1. identify and ask questions from a geographical perspective;

  2. locate, select and extract appropriate information and data from primary and secondary sources;

  3. present and organise information and data – which involves the ability to use the appropriate techniques for summarizing using the appropriate formats, such as texts (e.g. reports, tables, summaries, etc.) and illustrations (such as maps, diagrams, models, sketches, and graphs)

  • generic skills of communication, critical thinking, problem-solving and creativity through geographical enquiries, in particular, the ability to:

  1. select the appropriate means of effective communication;

  2. draw out meaning from information and determine whether the information should be trusted;

  3. analyse problems through logical reasoning, and determine the optimal course of action from a number of alternatives;

  4. view situations from different perspectives and adopt the appropriate approaches to analyse problems.

Outside the Classroom

The Geography department firmly subscribes to the view that this subject is at its best when exploring outside the classroom through local and overseas field trips.  Our students have explored numerous places including Cheung Chau, High Island Reservoir, Ma Shi Chau, Po Toi Island, Tung Chung River and Sharp Island.

 

The topics we covered in the past years are ‘The Geology of Cheung Chau’, ‘The Geology of Sharp Island’, ‘The Geology of Ma Shi Chau’, ‘The Geology and Coastal Landforms of High Island Reservoir’, ‘The ecology of Tung Chung River’ and ‘The Geology and Geographical Landscapes of Po Toi Island’.

 

Our students are provided with opportunities to overseas field trips in collaboration with different departments including a Canada trip to see the aurora co-organised with the Physics department and a cultural exchange trip in North Korea co-organised with the department of Chinese History.

 

In the coming years, we are going to explore more field trip sites for our students. We would also like to hear from you about any new ideas and insights for learning outside the classroom.

History

The Department of History

The Department of History at TTCA is established with the aim to:

  1. To enable students to discover where they stand in the contemporary world through understanding the origins and development of ancient and modern events.

  2. To enable students to develop the skills of critical thinking, making sound judgments and effective communication though exploring historical issues

  3. To enable students to understand the characteristics and values of their own culture and appreciate the shared humanity and common problems of the world’s population.

Curriculum Information

Junior Curriculum

S1 to S3 students at TTCA travel from ancient civilizations, through the Medieval Period, Renaissance, Industrial Revolution, the French Revolution and to the two World Wars. The curriculum aims at developing students’ understanding of basic historical concepts – such as cause and effect, change and continuity, and similarities and differences.

Senior Curriculum

When students move on to S4 to S6, they are ready to study the inter-relations of major events and movements that have occurred in Hong Kong, China, Japan and Southeast Asia and the world in the 20th century. They will be equipped with the skills to distinguish facts form opinions; detect biased viewpoints, ambiguous assumptions and unsubstantiated arguments; and present proper historical perspectives, and logical and coherent arguments through the proper selection and organization of historical data.

Outside the Classroom

We always encourage our students to learn outside the classroom. We organize museum visit for students to broaden their understanding of history. Through the Oral History workshop from the Hong Kong Heritage Project, our students can understand the local history from a new perspective.
