8What happens over time?Let’s consider a 66 year old born in 1943 who began school in 1949Decide if your card is an event that relates to:1940’s1950’s1960’s1970’s1980’s1990’spresentTime: 8:40 – 9:00 – Slides 3 & 4
9Select a card and discuss with your table group in which decade the event occurred. Move to the decade you think represents your time period.Check the list to see if you are in the right decade. Move to the correct group.Share your event during the group sharing
10Now let’s consider a child starting Kindergarten in 2009 This child was born in 2004.This child was not alive when 9/11 occurred.The United States has been at war for this child’s entire life thus far.We will need to educate this child for a life that will bring retirement in 2069 or later.
11What might life look like in 2069? Examine your card and locate the year on the back of the cardWhen your group is called, share your fact with the groupWe need to be ready for the 21st Century!
13The Key Elements of ………21st Century Learning acknowledges the importance of traditional core subjects, but expands them with missing elements that make the core subjects relevant to the world in which students live and eventually may work.
15This report was developed by a new public-private coalition known as the Partnership for 21st Century Skills.
16The report states, “Literacy in the 21st century means more than basic reading, writing, and computing skills”.As writer Alvin Toffler points out, “the illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn.”
17The new North Carolina Professional Teaching Standards were developed using the 21st Century Partnership’s MILEGuide. (Milestones for Improving Learning and Education)This MILEGuide describes the skills and knowledge required of students in the 21st Century.
18NORTH CAROLINA’S Educational Pipeline In North Carolina, for every 100 9th grade students……70 students graduate four years later.…41 students enter college.28 students are still enrolled in their 2nd year.…19 students graduate with either an Associate’s degree within three years or a Bachelor’s degree within six years Source:
20Future-Ready Students For the 21st Century The guiding mission of the North Carolina State Board of Education is that every public school student will graduate from high school, globally competitive for work and postsecondary education and prepared for life in the 21st Century.
21To accomplish this mission, North Carolina Public Schools will: Produce globally competitive studentsBe led by 21st century professionalsBe healthy and responsibleLeadership will guide innovation in NC Public schoolsBe governed and supported by 21st Century Systems
22How are the NC Professional Teaching Standards different from the Core Standards adopted in 1998? The most significant difference is ALIGNMENT!SBE mission and goals21st Century Skills and KnowledgeResearch from Teacher Working Conditions SurveySchool Executive and Superintendent StandardsEvaluation InstrumentsProgram approval for Schools of EducationProfessional Development
23New Standards for Teachers, Principals & Superintendents! GS 115C requires the Commission to review and propose standards for teaching in North Carolina.In August 2006 Chairman Lee charged the Commission to review and align the standards to reflect the State Board’s newly adopted mission and goals.The Commission is composed of 16 practicing educators.
24North Carolina Professional Educator Evaluation Systems Their purpose is to support and promote effective leadership, quality teaching, and student learning.The design is a growth model to improve instruction and enhance professional practice.The evaluation instruments are based on the Framework for 21st Century Learning and the Standards
25They are flexible enough to be fair to teachers and school executives of varying levels of experience and in school settings.The rubrics are formative in nature based on a rating scale from developing through distinguished.Multiple data sources, artifacts, and evidence will be used in assessing educator performance.They will provide the basis for performance goals and professional development activities.
26Still to come: Evaluation systems for: Superintendents Assistant PrincipalsCentral Office Staff & other school personnelStandards for School Boards
27The teacher performance evaluation process will: Serve as a measurement of performance for individual teachers.Serve as a guide for teachers as they reflect upon and improve their effectiveness.Serve as the basis for instructional improvement.Focus the goals and objectives of schools and districts as they support, monitor, and evaluate their teachers.27
28The teacher performance evaluation process will: Guide professional development programs for teachers.Serve as a tool in developing coaching and mentoring programs for teachers.Enhance the implementation of the approved curriculum.Inform higher education programs as they develop the content requirements for higher education programs.28

67In Standard 3 at the Accomplished level, “teachers deepen student’s understandings of 21st century skills and help them make their own connections and develop new skills.”How will teachers begin to work toward this level of accomplishment with today’s traditional classroom environments?
68School design is a critical issue in most school districts these days. School districts in the U.S. built thousands of schools that intentionally mimicked the industrial forms that had so sweepingly transformed the workplace. As historians Tyack and Cuban point out, “this factory approach to schooling has been remarkably durable over time: children enter school at he same age, are sorted into age-based grade levels, exposed to standardized curricula and textbooks, assessed at fixed points, and expected to progress at the same rate as their peers. Even today, many school buildings can be hard to tell apart from the factories they were built to resemble.”QUESTION: “WHAT WOULD A 21ST CENTURY SCHOOL AND CLASSROOM LOOK LIKE FOR LEARNING TO TRULY THRIVE?”
