WCSD graduates who are College and Career Ready require sound content knowledge along with key 21st Century Competencies. Careers of the 21st Century demand that we graduate citizens with highly-developed learning skills, along with the ability to collaborate, innovate, think critically about real-world problems, and use technology strategically and capably. WCSD's new Guide to Planning Instruction for 21st Century Learners provides a framework for schools and teachers seeking to maintain a focus on content standards while supporting students' development of 21st Century Competencies.
