There are four major features of Curriculum 2.1:
Internationally driven standards in mathematics, Reading, and Writing: Mathematics, reading, and writing are based on the rigorous International Standards. These standards describe the content that students must learn at each grade level and are designed to help 21st century students compete favor-ably with students around the world.
A focus on teaching the whole child: The curriculum provides more instructional focus on subjects such as Science , Technology , Engineering , Arts , Mathematics , Phonetics , Robotics , Physical health education, literacy, music, reading, social studies, and writing.. Students will receive instruction across all subjects in elementary school.
Integrated Thinking, Reasoning, and Creativity: The integration of thinking and academic success skills—or those skills that contribute to students’ ability to creatively solve problems collaboratively, interpret multiple perspectives, analyze complex data, and understand connections among a variety of ideas—is the unique aspect of Curriculum 2.1. These skills have been identified in the educational research as the tools necessary to thrive in the 21st century knowledge-based global economy.
Communication of student progress through a “standards-based” report card: The elementary school report card is aligned with the concepts and topics taught in Curriculum 2.1 each marking period. The quarterly report card provides feedback to students and parents throughout the year about how well students are meeting academic standards compared with grade-level expectations.
Curriculum 2.1 through pedagogies deeply engages students and helps them develop the skills they need to thrive in school and beyond.
