An Educator’s Guide to the 'Four Cs'
Preparing 21st Century Students for a Global Society: An Educator’s Guide to the “Four Cs”
All educators want to help their students succeed in life. What was considered a good education 50 years ago, however, is no longer enough for success in college, career, and citizenship in the 21st century.
Over the years it became clear that the framework was too long and complicated. To resolve this issue, we interviewed leaders of all kinds to determine which of the 21st century skills were the most important for K-12 education. There was near unanimity that four specific skills were the most important. They became known as the “Four Cs”:
- critical thinking,
- communication,
- collaboration, and
- creativity.

The International Middle Years Curriculum (imyc)
The IMYC is a curriculum that focuses foremost on student learning. It provides a rigorous, structured yet flexible teaching framework for 11 to 14 year olds to improve their learning and inspire and engage them throughout an often precarious learning and developmental period.
This is achieved through a range of themes to which subjects contribute interdependently providing a coherent and relevant learning experience.
"The IMYC shows real understanding of the unique philosophy and approach to learning that students at this developmental level require,” says Alison Lipp, Curriculum Coordinator at the American International School of Rotterdam, one of the first schools to have taken on the IMYC.

The Children’s Plan (UK) Dec08 ... Building brighter futures
Our aim is to make this the best place in the world for our children and young people to grow up. This is why we created the new Department for Children, Schools and Families six months ago, and why we announced that we would draw up this first ever Children’s Plan, to put the needs of families, children and young people at the centre of everything we do.
We are setting ourselves ambitious new goals for 2020, and we will report back on the progress we are making on the Plan in a year’s time. With schools, children’s services, the voluntary sector and government all playing their part, we can ensure that every child has the best start in life, we can back all parents as they bring up their children, we can unlock the talents of all our young people and we can ensure that no child or young person is left to fall behind.

Lesson plans, demonstration videos and inspiring messages from LTTA artists are now offered on-line through this site.
We combine the arts with all academic subjects, and our students learn the interconnectedness of all things.
We teach math through visual art, language through song, science through dance, and social studies through storytelling.
We combine learning with creative expression to develop the whole child.

The International Primary Curriculum
http://www.internationalprimarycurriculum.com/
The International Primary Curriculum is the most exciting curriculum project with which we have ever been involved.
Like everything we have done, the IPC is oriented to the future. It helps children develop the knowledge, skills and understandings they will need in their future lives. But it is also built on an awareness of the present reality. It provides the support teachers need now. In doing so, it frees teachers to focus on what is really important in the classroom ?how children learn, rather than the endless preparation and planning of basic work.
The IPC has been in development since 1998. We are grateful for the involvement of many teachers, not least those in schools operated by Shell International. It was our involvement with Shell that gave this project such a kick-start. Shell continues to provide an annual grant towards the International Primary Curriculum? development although the IPC is now a fully independent organisation.
