Our students continue their development on the strong bases which are laid in ALKEV primary school about academic and behavioral policies, in the light of educational and behavioral activities in ALKEV secondary school, towards to our academic and behavioral policies.
In our secondary school, all curricula are prepared with the integration of national and international teaching programes and the policy of ALKEV curriculum.
In our school, two basic frameworks are used in the education planning process. The first is Understanding by Design (UbD); It is a planning framework based on a retrospective design approach, focusing on deep learning and transfer. Owing UbD, effective and active learning experiences are guaranteed for all students.
The second basic framework is the Universal Design in Learning (UDL) program which focuses on the principle of “Individual differences are the norm, not the exception”. This approach aims at differentiation, not standardization in education, and develops alternatives for each student’s differences to teaching and learning. This approach also provides students with the opportunity to choose; diversifies the content, process and learning products in teaching. It maximizes the learning level of each student by removing the barriers to learning with different teaching methods.
