It is interdisciplinary, project- based, and research-driven. It is connected to the community local, regional, national and global. Sometimes students are collaborating with people around the world in various projects. The curriculum incorporates higher order thinking skills, multiple intelligences, technology and multimedia, the multiple literacies of the 21 st century, and authentic assessments. Slide 11 21stC Curriculum The classroom is expanded to include the greater community. Students are self-directed, and work both independently and interdependently. The curriculum challenges all students. The curriculum is not textbook-driven or fragmented, but is thematic, project-based and integrated. Skills and content are not taught as an end in themselves, but students learn them through their research and application in their projects.
