Teacher's Day: Innovative practices take the lead

Loo Mee Lan from SJKC Taman Connaught, Kuala Lumpur, who chose to educate her pupils on protecting the environment through project-based learning, says that such method needs a lot of planning.

“Not many school heads understand the benefits of project-based learning. Those who don’t tend to write them off as a waste of time,” she says.
But Mee Lan considers herself lucky as the learning method has caught on in her school. In fact, her project on environmental literacy has been an annual event that the entire school participates in.
