Once the Ministry of Education removes the t-score, secondary schools will screen students differently. The importance of EQ, influencing skills and leadership will come to the fore. Even before setting up The Collaboration Corner, Dr. Pet had been quietly teaching her students EQ, influencing and leadership. This is increasingly paying off during the DSA selections.
This child did not take part in Olympiads. She loves to draw, and is crazy about marine animals of all sorts. She started off quiet, dreamy and did not make eye contact. After the first lesson, I complained that she was not paying attention. She later became one of my strongest leaders, and most enthusiastic students.
SST has 2 parts to its selection process:
- academic testing
- team interview
(1) a team of students work at a team task
(2) a team of students discuss a topic
Low EQ kids who cannot work in teams fail the team interview.
