When we started this project, the leadership team identified six core principles that should live in whatever curriculum resources emerged from the work. They are these:
- Creation (media creation) products authentic to me, to others, and using real world tools.
- Perspective Taking
- Collaboration – with social interactions sometimes required in a unit, and sometimes not
- Revision & Feedback
As members of our teams are now teaching and planning and revising and designing and growing and learning and wondering together, I feel a need to return to these six core ideas, and flesh them out a bit, maybe ask some questions about them. So over the next few weeks, I intend to write a little more about each one here on the blog, and ask teams and teachers where and how these principles are emerging and taking root in the work.
How and where are you seeing these principles in our design together? How and where might they be missing and underdeveloped? Please let me know in the comments.
