Overview

Discover new options for instruction and school design that reflect the needs of 21st Century students!

This visionary resource challenges current assumptions that drive school curriculum and facility planning and helps readers create a new vision for high schools. The authors first explore how the traditional industrial model high schools fails to meet the learning needs of today's students. Then they present ten alternative models that emphasize 21st Century learning skills and are organized around five critical questions to help guide development of these new learning environments:

  • What should instruction and learning look like in a 21st Century school?
  • How can technology foster this kind of learning?
  • What non-instructional components are required?
  • How can time be used differently to support our vision?
  • How can physical facilities be organized to turn this vision into reality?
