Crescent School in Toronto, Ontario
Crescent School partnered with CCR to employ 4D School cutting-edge practices and research to bring its Portrait of a Graduate to life. Crescent’s mission features 4-Dimensional Competencies such as critical thinking, ethics, and leadership. To ensure graduates leave with those traits, Crescent’s partnership with CCR focuses on utilizing a systematic approach to move from the intent to teach competencies to evidence of learner proficiency.
Crescent teachers and leaders work with 4D Coaches to:
- Foster a culture of intent focused on a shared destination
- Ensure the explicit presence of Competencies in curricular and extracurricular activities by determining those that are best suited for them utilizing the 4D Framework of Competencies and Subcompetencies
- Support the development of quality competency-infused lesson plans
- Establish evidence of success benchmarks and feedback opportunities through the use of 4D Growth Rubrics
Every day reveals new challenges that today’s students will need to face—from climate change, to the risks and opportunities of artificial intelligence, to increasing social injustices, and political hyperpartisanship. These challenges make the work conducted at 4D Schools like Crescent all the more paramount.
