21st Century Skills

The 21st Century Skills Are A Must!  Tie Them Into Your New Curriculum

Now that Ohio has joined other states in the Partnership for 21st Century Skills consortium, school districts are strongly urged to integrate these skills into their curriculum. If Ohio students are to be successful citizens of the global marketplace, they must master such high-demand skills as collaboration, financial literacy, civic awareness, environmental consciousness, and the effective use of media and information. These skills must be thoughtfully integrated into the curriculum as part of every classroom.

Although several “lists” of 21st Century Skills are circulating, the “Partnership” list is one of the most comprehensive. The EdFOCUS team will help you incorporate these skills into your curriculum using developmentally appropriate “work habits” and “products” at each grade level and within each content area.
