Confident Competent Citizens
Mind Missions curriculum inspires outcomes that empower students to become confident, competent citizens for the 21st century. Students become confident when they design and present original solutions to open-ended problems. When design strategies fail, students learn that mistakes are a part of learning and the importance of perseverance to achieve mission success. In this way, Mind Missions acts as a social emotional elementary curriculum to promote a growth mindset.
Each Mind Mission encourages students to develop competence in collaboration, communication, and creative problem solving for 21st century success. Students are also empowered to become strong citizens by learning from the leaders of the past and participating effectively in their classroom community. Mind Missions prepares students for the future using the lessons of the past and challenges for the 21st century.
Students build social emotional skills as they learn to collaboratively problem-solve. They learn to take risks, accept input, overcome setbacks, and present outcomes. Then, they reflect on the experience to improve outcomes for the future. Mind Missions provides social emotional elementary curriculum to support student confidence.
