Life Skills Curriculum
The Four Domains in Life Skills
Our D-PREP Life Skills curriculum is a unique curriculum created for our school that includes the following domains:
- Self & Social Awareness & Management
- Life Mindset (D-PREP Values) & Universal Truths
- Active Citizenship
We utilize teaching & learning strategies such as practicing mindfulness & self-awareness, emotion regulation through carrying out social experiments and hands-on learning activities, and help students to develop the D-PREP values of courage, openness, compassion, resilience, ethics, adaptability, thankfulness, optimism, respect, and self-awareness (CO-CREATORS).
Students are also taught about the science behind the brain’s neurological processes and engage in observations and discussions regarding the connection of the brain’s physiological make up and how it affects our ability to regulate ourselves.
Our life skills curriculum also includes the practice of creative and analytical thinking skills to plan their life both at and beyond school as well as practical life skills that would be needed in all careers such as presentation and public speaking skills.
The ultimate goal of life skills is to help students experience their own inner power and the realization that they are more than capable of creating their own realities and achieving successful livelihood.
They will also realize that the joy and success of co-creating together is far more meaningful and valuable than that of individual success alone.
