Nueva has long supported an interdisciplinary approach in which learning is authentic and focused upon students’ interests and needs. Nueva classes encourage students to tackle messy, complex problems in which construction of knowledge is a practice shared by students, teachers, and environment. However with the emergent nature of our curriculum, which evolves each year, Nueva had developed little documentation, consistency, or understanding of continuity of different content and skills strands between grades and disciplines. This session will focus on the process of mapping PreK–12 learning experiences and opportunities. It will pay particular attention to how standards can be used to inform the development of a comprehensive and holistic program.
