IN PURSUIT OF EXCELLENCE

“Excellence is an art won by training and habituation…We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then is not an act but a habit.” Aristotle

A model for defining and achieving excellence in schools is one that focuses not only on the traditional three Rs but also three other Rs. The traditional three Rs include reading, ‘riting, and ‘rithmetic. We need to focus on other three: reasoningresilience, and responsibility. These latter three Rs complement and enhance the first three.

Reasoning

Reasoning is a broad term that encompasses the comprehensive set of thinking skills that a person needs to be an engaged, active citizen of the world. These skills include:

  • Creative thinking to generate new and powerful ideas
  • Critical and analytical thinking to ensure that the ideas are good ones
  • Practical thinking to implement the ideas
  • Wise thinking to ensure that the ideas help build a common good.
