Our Network Schools
Support for Network Schools
Culturally Responsive Education Benchmarks (CREBM) is at the heart of the C-for-Chinese@JC Project's support to our Network Kindergartens. It provides a holistic framework guiding schools to confidently embed and embrace culturally responsive teaching. We have also developed a range of curriculum support and professional development courses with an aim to support Chinese language learning and socioemotional learning of both Chinese-speaking and ethnic minority students.
The C-for-Chinese@JC Project has developed the structure of the CREBM and the supporting curriculum promoting Chinese ability and socioemotional competence of Chinese-speaking and ethnic minority students. The curriculum will include detailed lesson plans, interesting storybooks, fun-filled games, engaging songs and rhythms, home activities, and other teaching and learning materials.
32 Network schools of this phase will support the pilot and validation of the CREBM. The Project will also provide on-site support to 32 schools in stages, visiting these schools, familiarising teachers with our curriculum, helping schools develop additional teaching and learning materials and integrate our work into their existing curriculum to address their students' unique needs.
The CREBM will be fully validated and further disseminated together with the supporting curriculum to more schools so more teachers and students can benefit from the work.
Every Network School will receive a Seed Fund of HK$100,000. The school will use the fund to develop teaching and learning materials and host culturally responsive activities to support the development of ethnic minority students.
