Some of you might be thinking what is CAS, right? Creativity, Activity, and Service (CAS) is a required fundamental element of the prestigious IB curriculum. CAS in particular serves the purpose of giving IB schools the chance to “provide students with the means to learn through experience and how to conduct acts in the service of others.”
The three components of CAS, which are frequently entwined with specific activities, can be summarized as follows:
Being one of the the pillars of the IB curriculum, CAS offers students distinctive life experiences. For CAS projects, the educators serve as facilitators while the students take full ownership of the process. The responsible teachers monitor the event’s development and offer assistance when difficulties arise. Because it is where learning occurs, we want children to think independently and face the appropriate challenges, hence garnering a plethora of other advantages out of this meaningful activity:
The world’s top universities look for more than simply subject-matter proficiency to enable students to fill dynamic roles once they decide on a career path. Because of what they learned in school, IB students are prepared to meet the demanding demands of university life when they graduate from high school. They are equipped to handle difficulties both within and outside of the classroom.
