Welcome to HSSE Online!
Current Issue: Volume 8, Issue 2 2019

The social studies scene in Singapore is rapidly evolving. Revised curricula are being rolled out together with renewed accentuation on more active and engaging pedagogies and deliberate emphasis on enabling and empowering every student to become an independent learner, a critical thinker and a culturally sensitive citizen. This edition of HSSE Online brings together ideas from teacher educators and practitioners on student-centred pedagogies, particularly, inquiry-based learning that aim to achieve these citizenship education goals.

An Inspiring Quote

"[Open-mindedness] includes an active desire to listen to more sides than one; to give heed to facts from whatever source they come; to give full attention to alternative possibilities; to recognize the possibility of error even in the beliefs that are dearest to us."

~ John Dewey, How We Think
