In my dream school, curriculum would be planned collaboratively by the 6 staff members on each team, with four focus areas:
  • creative, compelling communication
  • academic inquiry and research
  • service learning and civic engagement
The a more developed set of outcomes would be specified on all six levels, with language for these standards developed by the teachers on each of the teams. Traditional or conventional subject areas, such as math, English, science, and social studies would be taught in interdisciplinary, when-needed focused ways. The curriculum would be project-based.
