21st Century Themes

Mastery of fundamental subjects and 21st century themes is essential for students in the 21st century. In addition to the fundamental subjects like math, science, history and others, we believe schools must move beyond a focus on basic competency to promoting understanding of academic content at much higher levels by weaving 21st century interdisciplinary themes into curriculum. 

We are focusing initially on Health Literacy & Environment Literacy.


HEALTH LITERACY

  • Obtaining, interpreting and understanding basic health information and services and using such information and services in ways that are health enhancing
  • Understanding preventive physical and mental health measures, including proper diet, nutrition, exercise, risk avoidance and stress reduction
  • Using available information to make appropriate health-related decisions
  • Establishing and monitoring personal and family health goals
  • Understanding national and international public health and safety issues

Environment Literacy

ENVIRONMENTAL LITERACY

  • Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the environment and the circumstances and conditions affecting it, particularly as relates to air, climate, land, food, energy, water and ecosystems
  • Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of society’s impact on the natural world (e.g., population growth, population development, resource consumption rate, etc.)
  • Investigate and analyze environmental issues, and make accurate conclusions about effective solutions
  • Take individual and collective action towards addressing environmental challenges (e.g., participating in global actions, designing solutions that inspire action on environmental issues)
