Today I just picked up my issue of EdDigest from the post office and quickly noticed an article on Critical Thinking Skills for the new workforce we are currently teaching. It is amazing, we are preparing students for jobs that have not even been invented yet. I thought about this upcoming school year. I immediately started thinking as I was reading the article, am I able to incorporate "(the four Cs)" they refer to, into my curriculum? I'm sure it's going to be pretty easy to incorporate the Effective Communication skill, as I am a Reading teacher this year. But, how are my colleagues fairing? It is very crucial for us as educators to keep abreast of current research trends for the future of the students we are teaching. It would be very disheartening to have taught a student 12 - 15 years and they are not able to use any of what they learned.
