Problem Solving
Problem solving in the 21st century calls for the development and application of the skills of analysis, higher order thinking, and collaboration. Logical reasoning, insight, perseverance, and creativity must be in a good problem solver's repertoire of strategies.
Good interpersonal skills will enable you to interact and deal with others in a responsible and effective way. These skills will improve your ability to work in a group and to communicate well in both face-to-face and virtual interactions.
Lifelong Learning
Life in the 21st century calls for you to have skills that you can use in many learning contexts, especially when facing new situations or circumstances. Lifelong learning will oblige you to embrace and manage a wide range of technological and print-based resources in your work.
Perspective Taking and Empathy
Perspective taking and empathy are skills that will help you understand and identify with the situations and feelings of others. Being able to see another's point of view and weigh other perspectives will enable you to deal more effectively with complex social and emotional concepts and dilemmas.
Advocacy and Argumentation
Advocacy and argumentation skills allow you to strategize and collaborate with others about effective ways to express ideas orally and in writing. These skills help you to create persuasive messages in print, electronic, and graphic forms to promote ideas and issues.
Leadership calls for you to take a stand and become an advocate for what you believe in. Good leadership skills allow you to put in place your ideas for ways to contribute to and become a positive influence in your family, school, and community.
Media and Technology Literacy
Mastering information technologies allows for greater communication with others. Understanding how media texts are created and being able to interpret and evaluate the messages they contain are essential skills for life in the 21st century.
Creative skills allow you to see the world in a new way to go beyond boundaries and establish your own ways of perceiving and interpreting. As you develop these skills, you consolidate your understandings of concepts, produce unique ideas, and conceive innovative solutions to problems.
Interface: Assessment and Evaluation
Interface embeds assessment for, of, and as learning throughout.

Focused assessment and evaluation support for every unit, selection and online multimedia bundle.
