Student Work

Taco Time at IES Södertälje

This week in Home Economics we have been making tacos, guacamole and salsa all from scratch. 

The students have been demonstrating their knife skills, group work and planning. They were given free reign to season and spice, and completed their cooking without assistance and under time pressure, just like on masterchef!

Mr Furie The Home Economics teacher:

I'm super proud of their work and their skills. Home Economics teaches the students how to live in the world after school. They are currently all working on their own menu for their final test. We will also be organising a cooking club and house competition for after autumn break.

Feeling hungry? Check out Mr Furie's easy recipe to try yourself at home:

Political debates in Swe/SO

This week our Swedish and SO lessons were filled with political debates. 

Teacher Mr Haraldsson explains: 

"The aim of the course is to create a deep level of knowledge about the Swedish governmental parties. The students are taught about democratic values, their effect on society and their right as individuals. In this specific task, the students are also trained in rhetoric, and perform presentations in front of the whole group."

When asked how the students have found the course Mr Haraldsson replied:

"The students absolutely love to talk about political institutions, and love to show their knowledge verbally. They are really passionate about the topic and for the freedom to speak openly and express themselves. Several students have already shown an amazing ability to express their point of views."
