  • The core problem is that our education and training systems were built for another era, an era in which most workers needed only a rudimentary education. It is not possible to get where we have to go by patching that system…We can get where we must go only by changing the system itself.” – “Tough choices or tough times: The report of the new commission on the skills of the American workforce – Executive Summary. Available http://skillscommission.org/pdf/exec_sum/ToughChoices_EXECSUM.pdf
  • Brainstorm activity – links to word doc: How can schools better prepare students for their future? LOOK FORS: Deeper thinking – problem solving – creativity

  • Show Slide: Textbook: = passive learning Primary Sources = Active Learning Scenario1: Close your eyes & imagine…teacher says “open your textbook to page 372 and read to page 395. Answer the questions at the end of the chapter. Active or passive learning? Or
  • Scenario 2: What do these primary sources make you wonder about? What questions do they raise in you? How can they help you understand this era in history? What clues can you follow to find more information? Active or passive learning? Can you start to see a connection between the AASL Standard: Inquire, Create, Participate, Grow – and working with primary sources? BACK TO THE STANDARDS DOCUMENT Let’s look a little closer at how the AASL Standards provide a roadmap for this kind of active learning. Looking at the organization of the Standards I’ll be walking your through a modified “unwrapping” process fairly quickly – to help lead you to a better understanding of just what these standards are saying students should know and be able to do. Four strands of learning are delineated in Standards for the 21st-Century Learner – Skills, Dispositions in Action, Responsibilities, and Self-Assessment Strategies. Examine these in the first standard. (Turn Page) Learners use skills, resources & tools to Inquire, think critically, and gain knowledge. ASK: What is a phrase we might use to represent “inquire?” – ASK QUESTIONS
