Develop University-Assisted Community Schools as an outgrowth of Educational Innovation Labs
CDP3 - Inclusive decision making
Humans across cultures and from early in childhood display a diversity of often strong moral beleifs and related actions in the world. Understanding the diversity and commonalities in human moral reasoning can be seen as a prequisite for engaging in public discourse on highly contentious and complex social or ecological issues. Schools can work to ensure an iterative, scaffolded, interdisciplinary curriculum that support adaptive understandings of diverse perspectives in moral psychology.
Our interdisciplinary teacher’s guide outlines our educational design concept. It provides introductory readings around core concepts of human sciences and ideas for exploring them in the classroom.
How do you start a conversation about improving your school? Our collection of conversation starters is a good place to start.
Students can and should be involved in the science-informed processes of community-based cultural evolution within their own school. Because this can be a complex task, schools should have some form of Community Science Lab (CSL), a group of students that are supported in more systematic approaches to school improvement through educational design thinking.
