Ready and Able: College, Career, and Citizenship in the 21st Century
The demands of meeting all district, state, and national requirements often seem to leave no time for preparing students for anything else. Yet teaching solely to the test will leave students ill-equipped for college, careers, and citizenship. Download this month's Whole Child Podcast on Monday, March 28, to hear an engaging conversation about powerfully preparing young people for the demands of the future.
You'll hear from staff and a student from the winner of the 2011 Vision in Action: The ASCD Whole Child Award, Quest Early College High School, along with Jay Mathews of the Washington Post as they discuss strategies for preparing students for college, careers, and citizenship.
