The Engagement Gap
300,000 US Students
Academic, Social & Emotional
Bored everyday in class!
Material not interesting
Not relevant
No teacher interaction
+ Discussions, debates, projects
We know how
people learn

The Common Core
Supports 21 Century
Common Core and P21
A turning point in the
standards movement
A common baseline for
academic knowledge and college
& career readiness skills
A foundation - not the “ceiling”
in expectations for student outcomes
in the 21st century
How P21 Framework & CCSS Connect

Created with P21 State Partners
and Member Organizations with
contributions from numerous state
education leaders who have already
begun Common Core implementation

P21 and Common Core
Common Core and P21
CCSS explicitly integrate higher-order thinking
skills nationally for the first time
Creativity, life skills and 21st century themes
are implied within CCSS
CCSS focus on what is most essential and
represent a baseline starting point for
21st century learning
ELA Key Design Considerations
Common Core and P21
A focus on results rather than methods
Leaves room for teachers, curriculum
developers, and states to determine how
goals should be reached
Teachers are free to implement best
practices to provide students with tools
and learning experiences to meet
P21 Framework & ELA
Rigorous content & development
of specific 21st Century Skills:
“Integration of Knowledge and
Ideas” in Reading
“Research to Build and Present
Knowledge” in Writing
“Comprehension and Collaboration”
in Speaking and Listening

Common Core and P21
21st century learning environments are
guided by standards, but require curricula
and assessment systems that allow students
to think critically and creatively, to
collaborate and communicate effectively,
and to apply these skills to the real world
Educators must design curricula and
assessments that:
Emphasize authentic real world problems
Engage students in inquiry and exploration
Provide opportunities for students to apply
what they know in meaningful ways

and a Proverb for
21st Century Learning
A 21st Century
Learning Promise
I promise to do all I can
to keep the spark
of curiosity, creativity and learning
alive in every child;
to help all children
discover their talents,
develop their passions,
deepen their understanding,
and apply all this to helping others,
and to creating
a better world

How to Achieve Happiness?
Ancient Chinese Proverb
If you want happiness for an hour –
take a nap.
If you want happiness for a day –
go fishing.
If you want happiness for a month –
get married.
If you want happiness for a year –
inherit a fortune.
But if you want happiness for a lifetime –
help someone else.
