Greenstein, Laura
The Common Core State Standards clearly define the skills students need for success in college and the 21st century workplace. The question is, how can you measure student mastery of skills like creativity, problem solving, and use of technology? Laura Greenstein demonstrates how teachers can teach and assess 21st century skills using authentic learning experiences and rigorous, varied assessment strategies. Based on the best ideas of renowned experts in education, this book provides a framework and practical ideas for measuring: (1) Thinking skills: critical thinking, problem solving, creativity, and metacognition; (2) Actions: communication, collaboration, digital and technological literacy; and (3) Living skills: citizenship, global understanding, leadership, college and career readiness. Included are numerous rubrics and checklists, a step-by-step model for developing your own classroom assessments, a lesson planning template, and sample completed lesson plans. "Assessing 21st Century Skills" gives you the tools and strategies you need to prepare students to succeed in a rapidly changing world.
