The Importance of Language: The Partnership for 21st Century Skills and AASL Standards
Formanack, Gail
School Library Media Activities Monthly, v25 n1 p28-30 Sep 2008
Members of the school library media profession are fortunate to have new direction from two organizations that seek to define the type of educational experiences that will best benefit students as they prepare to continue to learn, live, and work in the 21st century. Both organizations, American Association of School Librarians (AASL) and the Partnership for 21st Century Skills, frame an educational experience that goes beyond traditional academic learning while putting a greater emphasis on critical thinking and problem solving. As the debate and commentary continue regarding the new "AASL Standards for the 21st-Century Learner," it is important to compare the language used in both organizations' documents. This article presents an examination of the language used in both organizations' documents.
