    No-Nonsense Overview of What 21st Century Students Need to Know

    As a school teacher and now school principal, I have always been interested in innovation and school reform. There is no doubt that our intense focus on multiple choice testing and traditional skills brings into question whether we are really preparing our students for the challenges of a new century. If you believe that, then the next question is, "What kinds of learning should we be asking our students to do?" Trilling and Fadel's book answers that question loudly and succinctly. This book may not go into a great deal of depth or explanation as to why these skills are important, but it does provide an excellent overview and brief explanation of these skills. Obviously if one wants to look deeper into why these skills are important, there are other more comprehensive arguments for 21st century learning. This book is an excellent guide specifically for the educational professional, but also for anyone else who cares about the future of our students. I can see that my copy of this book will be placed close by for future reference.
