This is the introduction overview lesson to our “Exploring the Six Cs / 21st Century Skills” unit.
The Six Cs are a bunch of skills that you can use at school, at home, at a job… pretty much anywhere. They’re learning skills that some people think you’re going to need to be successful in the 21st century.
This year, you’re going to be learning a lot of stuff in class. You’re going to be learning about English, Math, Science, Geography, Phys Ed, Art, Music, etc.
- The provincial / state curriculum tells us what you’re going to learn at school.
- The six Cs are about HOW to learn and do things.
The six Cs are things that everyone can do, and should do. And, if you can start to learn and develop these skills at school, you’ll find you can apply them at home, in relationships, now, and in the future.
Today’s lesson is just an overview of what we’re going to be doing for the next few weeks. It’s a road map so you know where we’re headed.

Thursday June 11, 2020 update: How do you teach students the difference between fair and equal?
- If we say that we don't see colour and everyone is equal, just look at your pencil crayons. Do some colours get used more than others - even though colours are "equal"?
- Fairness does not mean treating everyone the same. Fairness means respecting differences and giving everyone what they need so that everyone has equal opportunity.
- When we say everyone gets treated "equally" so things are fair... that usually means we stop asking ourselves if things are actually fair by looking at outcomes.
- My anti-racism / social justice / citizenship debates lesson package is currently 50% off right now to support teachers discussing recent events in the US.
- ⭐Thank you to the many teachers who have downloaded it this past week. It's important to address these issues in a way that acknowledges and support all of our students.
