The Whole Child. Info Brief, Number 51
McCloskey, Molly
Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development
What is the best educational approach to prepare today's students to become tomorrow's leaders? How do we equip today's students with 21st century skills necessary for success? These important questions face parents, educators, policymakers, and communities. ASCD proposes a new whole child approach, supported by research, to provide the foundation for success in school, the workplace, the community, and life. The current educational climate focuses on students' success in reading and math, two vital subjects. However, the educational experience should be made up of more than just these two subjects. ASCD proposes a broader definition of achievement and accountability that promotes the development of children who are healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged. This "Infobrief" addresses some critical questions and provides an in-depth look at the central tenets necessary to improve education for all children.
