SELF-TAUGHT (SSST) MOTHER TONGUE PROGRAMME
The School-Supported Self-Taught (SSST) mother tongue Literature course at San Patricio Toledo is offered in partnership with MIH E-ducational Services Limited.
MIH has many years’ experience in sourcing highly experienced and highly qualified IB Literature educators and setting up online tutorial collaborations between these teachers and our mother tongue Literature students.
MIH caters for over 60 languages and works with close to 100 IB schools around the world. Besides providing our school with top quality online mother tongue tutors, MIH also supports ISSPToledo in the administration and implementation of the SSST course.
Through this partnership our mother tongue Literature students receive expert guidance on the various literary works studied and on the course concepts, and the students also produce a number of practice assessments on which they receive detailed qualitative feedback and which prepare them for the final IB assessments.
International School San Patricio Toledo and MIH E-ducational Services Limited collaboratively design an annual Scope and Sequence plan for this course, and both the in-school SSST Coordinator (Mr Brotherton) and all the mother tongue tutors follow this course outline throughout the two years. This ensures that all the mother tongue Literature students receive the same high-quality educational experience as the San Patricio students who have a classroom teacher for their Group 1 Language course (English and Spanish).
