Language Arts Educators Map Out 21st-Century Skills

Education Week's "Digital Directions" publication makes note of the new Partnership for 21st Century Skills announcement: A new resource created by the National Council of Teachers of English and the Partnership for 21st Century Skills provides English teachers with practical tips for how to infuse their classes with 21st-century skills. The resource offers many examples, such as encouraging students to produce movie trailers for classic novels, having them start a thread on an online forum about a local issue, or showing students how they can collaborate with members of the community in a digital-storytelling workshop.
