Escola Concept has four main pillars that guide the teaching and learning practices within the community.
16 HABITS OF MIND
At Escola Concept we strive to develop mindful, caring, and joyful citizens who are committed to their personal growth, the growth of others, and the growth of their community.
The set of 16 problem-solving strategies called the "Habits of Mind" are used as a foundation to support this positive mindset that permeates our community of learners.
At Escola Concept, the slogan "Learning the meaning of learning" comes to life through the Thinking Culture. Learners are continuously stimulated to pose questions, develop their curiosities and share impressions.
The approaches and techniques for teaching these skills are called Visible Thinking Routines. They began to be researched at Harvard's Project Zero and are taught to Concept's educators by one reference in the subject, Mark Church, the co-author of "Making Thinking Visible" (Harvard).
Escola Concept selected the most integrated, relevant, meaningful, and purposeful international curriculum that aligns with who we want our learners to be: happy, action-oriented, and inspired individuals who seek to better the world we live in.
Fieldwork Education provides our thinking and learning environments with three different curricula appropriate for the grade levels we serve: the International Early Years Curriculum (ages 2 to 5), the International Primary Curriculum (ages 5 to 11), and the International Middle Years Curriculum (ages 11 to 14). Fieldwork Education currently has an international presence in over 2,000 schools, distributed among 98 countries, with over 15,000 teachers.
