The 4Cs

"In an increasingly complex, demanding and competitive 21st century, students need to learn more than the 3R’s they are tested on in school. It’s time to help them go “above & beyond”, by embracing the 4Cs – communication, collaboration, critical thinking and creativity." 
“Above & Beyond” was written by NY Times #1 best-selling children’s book author/illustrator Peter H. Reynolds (The Dot, Ish, The North Star.) Peter is a tireless champion of creativity and innovation in the classroom.

Hey Ms. Paige Baggett. My name is Alexandria Thompson and I attend the University of South Alabama, I am in EDM 310. I really enjoyed watching the video "How Do You Go Above and Beyond". It really shows how students and teachers should think outside the box and use everything around them to accomplish projects.
