The purpose of this post is two-fold:
- see title–that pretty much explains it
- I hope to expand my learning network, so feel free to comment if you subscribe to this blog, but by all means SHARE THIS with your own network! I’d love to meet the people that make my people so darn interesting.
Here’s the task:
Imagine that for some reason a school decided to eliminate content-specific departmental structures. Rather than learning Art, Science, and Spanish, students learn a set of core skills and content that will prepare them for the next levels of learning, a life of citizenship, a successful career, and a life worthy of the investment of time living it.
What do you consider the essential learnings or essential questions that students would explore throughout their academic studies?
Whether you’re an educator, a parent, whether you work in public sector, private sector, or don’t work at all, I’d love to have your input.
Comment below, reply to others’ comments, challenge me and others, combine ideas. Have fun. I hope it’s not just me and the crickets…
