the increase of accountability tied to standardized testing and No
Child Left Behind’s emphasis on basic skills and knowledge as well as
the goal for all students to be technologically literate by the end of
eighth grade, teachers are faced with the challenge of complying with
legislation and preparing their students to succeed in the 21st
The purpose of this project is to create an
accessible tool that educators can use to find lesson plans that
address their grade level’s content standards as well as 21st century
skills. What originally started as a database of lessons has evolved
into a website for teaching and learning 21st century skills. This
website will include information on 21st century skills, a database of
lessons, methods for assessing 21st century skills, a bulletin board
and additional resources for teachers.
My hope is that this website will become a place for educators to collaborate and contribute their successes.
Lainie congratulations on your new Web site! I will promote it among the teachers I work with and share it with the pre-service teachers I teach. Awesome job. This will be avaluable resource.
