Pedagogy & Curriculum
Students learn best when given the opportunity to make discoveries, find patterns, and think critically about new ideas. That’s why Heads Up Learning depends on student-centered pedagogy to drive meaningful learning.
Four themes traverse the year’s literacy learning for French and for English learners: citizenship, environmentalism, community activism, and human-tech relationships. Students across grade levels take a unique focus on the core themes, incorporating state standards of social studies and science for holistic and cross-curricular learning.
By the end of their last year with Heads Up, learners have insights into core issues across the globe, historical context of cause and effect, and agency to use their own voice as we look to the future of communities, technology, and the natural world.
