The Metropolitan College of New York System of Education is
now being used from K-12 in schools throughout the country.
All school subjects are focused on the semester's Purpose. Instead of taking classes separated by subject area, students take classes which incorporate the core subjects and are called Dimension of Learning, Action, and Assessment. These Dimension classes also teach students how to use knowledge and skills to achieve their Purposes through research, goal-setting, effective communications and teamwork.
The five Dimensions of Learning, ActionSM and Assessment are:
Students identify, examine, plan, implement and evaluate the achievement of their Purpose. In this process, they use mathematics, geography, history, the language arts, science and other knowledge, as well as the complex skills of planning, synthesizing, problem-solving and creativity to achieve their Purpose through a Constructive Action.
Values and Ethics Dimension
Students examine perspectives from history, literature, philosophy and government to help bring ethical considerations into the decisions they make to achieve their Purpose through Constructive Action.
Self and Others Dimension
Reading and writing skills, literature and the creative arts help students increase their understanding of themselves, communicate effectively and develop productive relationships with people of all ages and cultures as they achieve their Purpose.
Students develop a theoretical and practical understanding of the systems of which they are a part, including the family, community and the world at large. In Natural Systems Dimension classes, students examine the natural sciences and technology. In Social Systems classes, students examine history, civics, geography and other aspects of the social sciences, to work more effectively with these systems in achieving their Purpose through Constructive Action.
Students develop critical skills for higher education, adulthood, citizenship, leadership and the workforce. These include mathematics, computer and technological applications, physical skills and statistics.
