Establishing an International School


In 2016 the Arab Center for Research and Policy Studies –Tarsheed (ACRPS-Tarsheed) founded the Arab International Academy  (AIA) to establish a distinguished international private school that adheres to the highest global and Arabic standards of education. Consequently, AIA is distinguished by its unique educational programs, ones which balance between Arabic and international curricula. Planning and preparations for the school were achieved by recruiting exceptional Arab and international academic and administrative professionals from around the globe. To ensure the growth and sustainability of its teaching initiatives, Tarsheed helped AIA adopt the required policies, procedures, and evaluation tools to help monitor, control, and grow its academic programs and its administrative support. As a result of our efforts and the dedication of the AIA team, the academy obtained its International Baccalaureate (IB) certifications for all its programs: Diploma programme (DP) for grades 11 & 12, middle years programme (MYP) for grades 6-10 and primary years programme ( PYP) for grades KG-5.

 

Authoring History Books:

 

 

ACRPS-Tarsheed authored a series of history books for grades six to ten in Arabic  -- which are essential for teaching history in school. Work started on these books through a series of workshops organized by ACRPS-Tarsheed that also comprised a group of history professors and researchers from different Arabic countries in addition to several educational consultants and specialists of social studies curricula.

 

Workshops participants determined the contents’ learning objectives of general history based on the required knowledge and skills students ought to acquire, especially ones related to research, investigation, critical thinking, and communication. They stressed the importance of adopting modern educational strategies. These strategies place students at the center of the learning process and avoid relying on memorization and indoctrination.   In addition to the school textbooks, the participants emphasized the necessity of using several different educational sources such as original documents, photos, museums, historical monuments, and films. They devoted considerable time to examine the table of contents and the sequence of the academic content which includes historical subjects, basic concepts, and sub-concepts. Based on the results of these workshops, the authors prepared detailed outlines to clarify which topics will be expanded. After the scientific review committee approved the outlines, the authors commenced authoring the history books, which included various accompanying learning activities related to the academic units.
