For an overarching and experiential curriculum, our students go on excursions, visit theatres and museums, consult experts, build models, partake in experiments (i.e. Jugend forscht), and work on presentations. The students usually form groups in which they work and present a topic independently. They practice social behaviour, share responsibilities, and learn from each other. That is why we so often form teams: in sport (i.e. ‘The Hunger Run’) where fair play and teamwork are an integral part of each lesson, but also in all other subjects.
In addition, we organize cross-curricular games in the form of historical and geopolitical simulations with our sister school at Phorms Gymnasium Berlin Mitte. These activities allow students to slip into strategic roles for a day and practice political thinking or give speeches before a gathering of peers.
