How do Mind Missions build the 4 Cs?
Mind Missions are designed to encourage the development of the 4 Cs and provide engaging social studies and language arts learning. In each lesson, students Collaborate, Communicate, think Critically and design Creative solutions. Then, they reflect on their mission success and personal growth. In the process, students build social-emotional skills.
Mind Missions uses a framework to support the 4 Cs in every lesson. Students team up, brainstorm, read a Social Studies story, solve a related problem creatively, assess their solution, and reflect on learning.This process is repeated in each lesson so that students practice and gain essential 21st century competencies.
