The Paradigm Shift: The World is Changing

Essential Questions

  • What is our vision of learning in the 21st Century?
  • What changes are necessary (as a school, team, grade level, department) to respond to "the shift"? And, what should not change?
  • How do we create a culture that supports, owns, and executes the vision (faculty, admin, parents, students)?
