  1. Knowledge and skills to gather, analyze, and apply information/ideas.
  2. Knowledge and skills to communicate effectively within and beyond the classroom.
  3. Knowledge and skills to recognize and solve problems.
  4. Knowledge and skills to make decisions and act as responsible members of society.
