Learning and Innovation Skills at Park View Prep

The 21st Century Skills, or Learning and Innovation Skills, are "increasingly are being recognized as the skills that separate students who are prepared for increasingly complex life and work environments in the 21st century, and those who are not." (from p21.org)

These skills are commonly known in education as the 4 Cs: Critical Thinking, Creativity, Communication, and Collaboration.

Park View supports the application of these skills through:
1.  Thinking Maps- Graphic organizers used for different thought processes
2.  Cooperative Learning- Model to practice skills to work with others
3.  Creativity Fridays- One hour each week for students to work on projects which include media, technology, careers curriculum, the arts (fine, performing, music, etc.) or other activities which foster creativity
