 Transdisciplinary Skills

 

Daily opportunities are provided at school for students to practice  these transdisciplinary skills that are valuable for learning inside and outside of the classroom. These skills are called “transdisciplinary” because they are like multipurpose tools that can be used by students across all subject areas to be successful learners.

From Kindergarten – 5th grade, teachers help students learn how to use the following skills.
• Thinking Skills
• Social Skills
• Communication Skills
• Self-Management Skills
• Research Skills

Parents can support student use of these skills outside of school by referring to them with their children at home and in the community. As with any tool, the more purposeful, guided opportunities we have to use it, the more skilled we become in its use!
