Every new program we launch has months of research built in to it. After extensive research, we then put ourselves in the shoes of the students while preparing the lesson plans. Each lesson plan that our teachers use has many embedded 'interaction points' interlaced, which our teachers use to infuse brainstorming exercises in class. Our carefully crafted and detailed lesson plans allow the teachers to ask pertinent questions that stimulate the curiosity in our students.
In Technology (as an example), while building the curriculum, we frequently introduce experimentation junctures where students explore and figure out diverse ways of solving a particular problem. Instead of the teacher telling them how to proceed, they use our lesson plans to stimulate discussion and encourage students to figure out their own unique way through.
Hundreds of hours of research goes in to prepare our curriculum, the richest you will find...and we keep innovating and improving upon them constantly.
The most unique classrooms you will find
We hire teachers very selectively and are proud to have attracted some of the best teachers from the Charlotte area. Our teachers infuse the classroom with energy, collaboration and make it one of the most engaging learning atmospheres you will find. All our teachers help continuously enhance our teaching methodology by providing feedback and driving improvement on a constant basis.
We are data driven and our teachers record weekly feedback on a variety of parameters on all students. This helps us in two areas:
1) We can provide very pertinent feedback to parents on the growth and development of their child
2) Teachers know where to focus for every child - in a very information driven approach
We are the only Technology enrichment provider you will find who is focused on your child's planned growth in developing them as creative thinkers, problem solvers and leaders in technology
What do our classrooms look like
In our classrooms, you will find a lot of hand raising, diverse set of ideas and thoughts flying all across....students experimenting, making mistakes and learning as they go along....The energy is palpable. Students learn as much if not more from each other's diversity of thought, as they do from the coach.
Strive for perfection
We strive for perfection...and we learn fast from mistakes
At Thinking Feet, we are never satisfied with status quo...we always strive to perfect ourselves and in the path towards perfection we fail ... many times. What you can be assured of though is that when we fail, we learn fast and bring out a even stronger enrichment service for your child along the way.
When we launched our first Technology program in Sep 2014, we had outlined a certain scope to cover in the first class. When the first class ended, we could not cover even half of our goal. The reason...we had a hypothesis of what the class discussion will look like, but we were pleasantly surprised by the amount of engaging discussion we were able to generate in the class. While we could not cover the entire scope of what we had planned for in the first class, the class benefited immensely from the amount of engaged discussions they had. And we learnt and got better at pacing of class materials
Hold us to the highest standards you can think of, we always strive for that.
