Students and parents want schools to give young people chances to think creatively, communicate effectively, and solve real problems. Employers and colleges want high-school graduates who can organize their time, work on teams, and confront complex tasks without giving up. These skills can be taught. They can be assessed. And classrooms become more equitable, dynamic, and personal when these skills are at the heart of all teaching and learning. In this session, participants will explore resources that can be used to help schools build unified, competency-based systems for teaching transferable skills. We will also look at student work together in order to collaboratively determine what proficiency looks like in these essential skills.
