Common Core & 21st Century Skills
Currently, school leaders across the country are faced with the full integration of Common Core State Standards as well as developing curriculum across all content areas which promote the development of the 21st century skills of communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and creativity. Thanks to Partnership for 21st Century Skills, school and district leaders can now turn to the P21 Common Core Toolkit, which will assist them in aligning both Common Core State Standards with 21st Century Skills. In the 48-page toolkit, leaders who are interested in implementing Common Core Standards in ways that will infuse the 4 C’s will find:
A high-level summary of how the P21 framework and the Common Core State Standards support each other
Common Core / P21 Examples
Lesson starters that illustrate “what it looks like” to align instructional practices with both the common core and P21 skills
Common Core Resources
Compilation of useful links for states and districts working to implement the Common Core State Standards
Compilation of background reading on the issue of assessment and the 4Cs
