Welcome to the 21st Century Teaching and Learning web page. The purpose of the site is to supply you with information on Freeport School District's pedagogical approaches to 21st Century Teaching and Learning. The webpage contains links to district documents such as the 21st Century Teaching and Learning Matrix and a variety of other educational articles/videos related to 21st Century Teaching and Learning.
  
FSD145's 21st Century Teaching and Learning Matrix can be found by clicking on the following link: FSD 145's 21st Century Teaching and Learning Matrix 
 
FSD145 is proud to announce a newer version of our 21st Century Teaching and Learning Matrix. This version is referred to as the SubMatrix. The SubMatrix contains components C and D from the original matrix, but we believe the SubMatrix is a valuable resource with a laser focus on 21st Century Teaching and Learning. Please click on the following link to access the SubMatrix: SubMatrix

Our goal is to embed 21st Century Teaching and Learning strategies across all subject areas by implementing the following four pedagogical approaches:
  • The 4 C's (Communication, Collaboration, Critical Thinking, and Creativity)
  • Inquiry-Based Learning
  • Short Focused Research 
  • Project-Based Learning 

On November 10th, Freeport teachers created visual representations on how the four pedagogical approaches fit together. Please select the links below to view their representations.
