Pearlman, Bob
New Directions for Youth Development, n110 p101-112 Sum 2006
When one walks into the classrooms at New Technology High School (NTHS) in Napa, California, he or she will see that students there are always at work: writing journals online, doing research on the Internet, meeting in groups to plan and make their Web sites and their digital media presentations, and evaluating their peers for collaboration and presentation skills. NTHS was founded in 1996 as a twenty-first century school. A task force led by the business community but including educators and civic leaders studied best practices throughout the United States and launched a school with that aim. This article describes how NTHS employs project- and problem-based learning and outcomes-based assessment, features that makes it an exemplary twenty-first century school. (Contains 6 endnotes.)
