The 3Cs

Character:

Confidence, vivacity and cheerfulness are the most important traits within and can be developed by Edify schools by being generous with praise and making the child responsible towards animals and plants, play active games, watch cartoons, listen to music and dance. The rules of games train children to control their behavior and encourage the development of qualities such as patience Purposefulness, observation, reasoning and logic.
Under the school’s guidance the children learn to be independent, patient and decisive where the children are taught to reach their goals by dividing difficult tasks into several smaller steps.

Competence:

Edify schools develop these qualities by having a student centered learning environment i.e.by giving them responsibilities, opportunities to explore the society, holding field trips, journaling, preparing group and independent projects and dramas. Sports and physical education enables the children to self regulate their emotions and de-stress to learn about personal rights and honoring their own perceptions and increasing positive self talk, goal setting and responsibilities.

Content:

Knowledge gained without implementation has no standing hence the knowledge gained by the child is practiced in his/her day to day activities. The rich inquiry based curriculum is a significant and relevant subject matter acquired for the real life skills and taught through the following subjects, Languages, Mathematics, Science and Technology, Social science Visual Arts, Music and Drama, Environment Education, Physical, Social and Personal Education.
It is an integrated study of the above mentioned subjects where the child participates in real life experiences. The focus is on application of knowledge through inquiry, experimentation, research and discovery. In this process they become knowledgeable and understand the significance of the gained knowledge. It is through constructive learning methodology academic brilliance is inculcated in every child.

Assessment in 3C :

Assessment is the gathering and analysis of information about student performance. It identifies what students know, understand, can do and feel at different stages in the learning process.

Learners Constructing MeaningAssessment is integral to all teaching and learning. Thoughtfully and effectively guiding students through the six essential elements of learning:-

The displaying of Character,
The understanding of Concepts
The acquisition of knowledge,
The mastering of Competence,
The development of Content,
 And the decision to take responsible Action.

Everyone concerned with assessment – students, teachers, parents, administrators, and board members – must have a clear understanding of the reasons for the assessment, what is being assessed, the criteria for success, and the method by which the assessment is made.

The 3C describes the taught curriculum as the written curriculum in action. Using the written curriculum, and in collaboration with colleagues and students, the teacher generates questions which guide structured inquiry and instruction.
These questions address the eight key concepts which help lead to productive lines of inquiry.
Assessment focuses on the quality of student learning during the process of inquiry and instruction and on the quality of the products of that learning.

Assessment is, therefore, integral to the taught curriculum. It is the means by which we analyze student learning and the effectiveness of our teaching and acts as a foundation on which to base our future planning and practice. It is central to our goal of guiding the student, from novice to expert, through the learning process.

The assessment component in the school’s curriculum can itself be subdivided into three closely related areas:

  • Assessing – How we discover what the students know and have learned.
  • Recording – How we choose to collect and analyze data.
  • Reporting – How we choose to communicate information.
