An Ohio high school next fall will be home to a new academy featuring a student-centered, project-based curriculum, designed to teach students to use 21st-century skills. The instructional model at the new Renaissance Academy at Scott Hill High School will be based on the book, "A Whole New Mind," by Daniel Pink, focusing on six concepts: empathy, design, story, symphony, play and meaning. "It will allow our more creative, 'right-brain' students, who may not succeed in a traditional classroom, to experience school in a whole new way," teacher Soula Palassis said.
