As the adoption of the Common Core Standards progresses throughout the nation, it becomes clear that higher-level thinking is no longer a choice, but instead it is a fundamental part of teaching students 21st Century Skills and preparing them for the future.
According to www.corestandards.org, students who meet college and career readiness are “self-directed learners, effectively seeking out and using resources to assist them, including teachers, peers, and print and digital reference materials.”
