Standards for 21st Century Learners
AASL Learning Standards broken down for Educators
Inquire, Think Critically, and Gain Knowledge
This is your student's first chance to start the inquiry based process to find the answer to a question. Students should be able to follow what they already know and make connections to the real world while using several forms of media, group work, and persistence to solve their problem.
Draw Conclusions, Make Informed Decisions, Apply Knowledge to New Situations, and Create New Knowledge
Here your students will learn how to organize their new knowledge. Through collaboration with others and different forms of technology, students will be able to act on what they've learned. They'll be able to figure out what is useful and what they can disregard.
Share Knowledge and Participate Ethically and Productively as Members of Our Democratic Society
Learners will use writing, speaking, and technology skills; besides others, to showcase what they discovered in the inquiry process. All work will be done ethically, responsibly, and respectful of others opinions.
Pursue Personal and Aesthetic Growth
Learners will read and respond to literature while making connections to other texts as well as the world around them. Students will be able to seek the opportunity for growth by choosing appropriate materials and developing personal criteria for their work.
