This text adopts experimental pedagogy, most notably, its setting in a backstory, of an ordinary boy (Jeremy Shum LLB Laws), who though was a college student by day, is a secret agent by night. He also plays the protagonist, who lives a double life as a secret agent, posing as an ordinary schoolboy by day. Other notable but hypothetical non-existent characters are:
Beezus Quimby BEng (Civil) - Living a double life as a secret agent posing as superstar Hannah, Beezus is the foil. A preppy cheerleader by day, she is an unlikely friend of Jeremy.
Sophie Winzar MBBS - Unlike Beezus, Soph is tactful in everything she says, and is Jeremy's unlikely girlfriend. She is completing her hospital residency on field.
Adopting as framework, Shum’s Three Forces ((1) Written syllabus at a requisite but encompassed standard; (2) Communication adopting kinesthetic, auditory and visual cues; (3) Arousing interest in students to continue furthered search), our trials have encompassed:
* Teach on a need-to-know basis, sticking with a core essential syllabus
* Keeping language short and simple, not assuming loquacious jargon
* Organization of logical arguments clearly with supported evidence
* Appropriate symbols, metaphors, music, illlustrations, parables and humor to make learning fun for young folk
o Required learning material in black. Dynamic back story in grey
o Key concepts are in green
o Key concept words are underlined
* Facebook feedback learning to help develop knowledge
