Rethinking Readiness: Deeper Learning for College, Work, and Life
Heller, Rafael, Ed.; Wolfe, Rebecca E.; Steinberg, Adria
Harvard Education Press
"Rethinking Readiness" offers a new set of competencies to replace the narrow learning goals of No Child Left Behind and, in chapters written by some of the nation's most well-respected education scholars, explores their implications for schools. Today's students must cultivate the full range of intellectual, interpersonal, and intrapersonal capacities that have been grouped together under the banner of "deeper learning." "Rethinking Readiness" focuses on how educators and policy makers should move forward to provide the educational experiences that students need to become truly well prepared for college, careers, and civic life, including changes in curriculum, teacher evaluation, and student assessment. As state leaders chart a new course for K-12 education in the Every Student Succeeds Act era, "Rethinking Readiness" offers a succinct and compelling vision for a new agenda for school reform so future generations can prosper in a rapidly changing world. After an introduction by the editors, contents include: (1) How We Got Here: The Imperative for Deeper Learning (Jal Mehta and Sarah Fine); (2) The Power of Work-Based Learning (Nancy Hoffman); (3) Preparing for Civic Life (Peter Levine and Kei Kawashima-Ginsberg); (4) Equal Opportunity for Deeper Learning (Pedro Noguera, Linda Darling-Hammond, and Diane Friedlaender); (5) Deeper Learning for Students with Disabilities (Sharon Vaughn, Louis Danielson, Rebecca Zumeta Edmonds, and Lynn Holdheide); (6) Deeper Learning for English Language Learners (Patricia Gándara); (7) Ambitious Teaching: A Deep Dive (Magdalene Lampert); (8) District Leadership for Deeper Learning (Meredith I. Honig and Lydia R. Rainey); (9) Toward Systems of Assessments for Deeper Learning (David T. Conley); and (10) Deeper Learning in the Age of ESSA: Ideas and Recommendations (Rafael Heller, Rebecca E. Wolfe, and Adria Steinberg). An index is included.
