Future-Ready Fluencies for 21st Century Learners

Grade Level
One important contention drives this course’s purpose: schools need to evolve to fully prepare students for the future. To guide this evolution, we look to skills, or “fluencies,” to help students grow in proficiency as they see and interact with the world. The text authors offer six skills, or fluencies – Solution, Collaboration, Information, Communication, Creativity, and Global Citizenship – to replace the traditional focus on the three “R’s.” In this informational and practical course, you will collaborate with a colleague to identify connections between fluencies and content, and create a tool to track your findings for later planning. You’ll understand how to create fluency-based activities using problem-based learning, and you’ll design an authentic assessment to measure student success. Finally, you’ll leave this course full of fresh ideas for progressive teaching using the fluencies to keep learning relevant, applicable, engaging and future focused.
