How to teach other subjects (Math, Science, Computer, etc.) in English?
In Siriwat School according to the English Program, some subjects are taught only in Thai as Thai Language, Career, Religion; some subjects are taught both in Thai and English such as Math and Science, and some of them are taught only in English as Computer and Health.

While teaching a topic in a second language one of the most important components is establishing concrete ideas on students’ minds, according to this aim, we use activities, projects, new teaching strategies and connections of topics among each other and daily life.

Teaching Math in English:
As known Math is an abstract subject, so as Siriwat School we convert the abstract knowledge to concrete ideas by making activities, solving problems by using different ways, giving examples from daily life situations.

In Kindergarten and Primary Sections, drawings and materials are used to construct mathematical thought. The activities taken from different books and internet sources are completed with students, so students enjoy while learning. The word problems are chosen from daily-life situations which prevents students to think math separately from the life. In addition, the basic mathematical terms of math and geometry are taught in this stage.

In Secondary Section, students and teacher follow the same book that is determined by the school at the beginning of the semester, but teacher enriches the lessons by solving more problems taken from different books from different countries. This enables students to have a better understanding of the topic and look from different perspectives to the same topic. In the lesson, worksheets of the related topic are given as homework or review, so teacher can follow students’ learning at home. Moreover there are Math projects given to tie up Math topics with daily life.

Also, both primary and secondary section mathematical terms are given every week, and the learning is checked by the teacher. Likely, students are challenged by international competitions.

Teaching Science in English:
Science lessons in Kindergarten and Primary Sections are based on demonstration, group work and discovery learning. Teacher covers each topic by using at least one of the mentioned methods. In the lessons, the examples are either given by the teacher or collected by the students with the guidance of the teacher. For each level, group work is made which enables students to learn how to work cooperatively in an effective way.

In Secondary Section, science teaching is project-based. In each term, teacher prepares a project schedule for each level and students submit their projects in the given time. Teacher teaches the topic and students submits a project about the topic at the end, so students learn and use the science terms effectively. Also, by using project-based learning students can apply the scientific facts and formulas to real life. Every year, in the second semester there is a project competition named Young Scientist Project, and students can join to this competition with their best project, to see their place in the school.

Teaching Computer in English:
In Siriwat School, computer lessons start in Kindergarten. In Kindergarten and Primary Sections computer lessons based on basic properties of computer usage. Each topic is taught by a game that includes the main idea of the topic. Teacher does not follow a fixed book, but teaches the topic computer based and by the help of worksheets. Drawings, colorings, and materials are used. Especially mouse and keyboard usage is taught.

For secondary section, lessons are based on computer at all. At a first step students learn to use Microsoft Office, and according to the level, Computer Programming, Flash Animation, Photoshop is taught. Students prepare projects of each topic, individually and cooperatively. The exams are on the computer, and each student has a final project at the end of each semester. Students are challenged by international competitions.

Coordination between subjects taught in Thai and English (such as math and sup. Math, science and sup. Science)
In Siriwat School the curriculum designed by Thailand Ministry of Education followed. For the topics that are taught both in Thai and English, teachers work cooperatively. At the beginning of the semester, teachers who teach the same subjects in English and Thai (as Math teacher and Sup Math teacher) come together and prepare a schedule for the semester based on the Thai curriculum. So, students learn the same topic in Thai and English at the same time, which prevents the confusion of topics and terms.

Moreover during the semester, every week teachers who teach the same subject in Thai and English meet with the head of the section and discuss the topics, teaching procedure, students’ learning and difficulties, exercises, exams and projects to construct a better understanding.
