The 4 C's of Education

What are the 4 C's?


  • Collaboration
  • Communication
  • Critical Thinking
  • Creativity

These are four of the most important 21st century skills we can teach our students. Each quarter will we focus on a different component of the 4 C's. This quarter our focus will be on collaboration and communication. As your planning your lessons think of ways you can incorporate collaboration and communication into your activities. Click on the link below to watch a short video explanation of the 4 C's. Keep scrolling down to find ideas on how you integrate collaboration and communication in your classroom. Thank you Tracey Waid for allowing me to borrow some of your amazing ideas!
