While staying within the Department of Education’s changing curriculum guidelines, CI has consistently sought to enrich and infuse the school’s curriculum delivery with innovative approaches such as Howard Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences(MI), Wiggin’s and McTighe’s Understanding by Design (UBD) approach, Arthur Costa’s and Jenna Kallick’s Habits of Mind (HoM) and Martin Seligman’s theory of Positive Education.
Today’s students need a repertoire of knowledge and skills across all content areas that are more diverse, complex and integrated than any previous generation. This is also true for civic life and work life. It is no longer enough for students to master the 3 R’s (Reading, Writing and Arithmetic). The new global society is full of challenges – global warming, economic meltdowns, rapidly increasing technological changes, internationalization of work. As educators prepare students for this new global society, teaching the core content subjects—math, social studies, the arts— must be enhanced by incorporating critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity.
