Science and Geography, 4-12
The 21st Century Skills Maps for Science and Geography shows how integrating problem solving, communicating and critical thinking into science and geography classes supports teaching and prepares students to become effective and productive citizens. The Partnership for 21st Century Skills collaborated with the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) and the National Council for Geographic Education (NCGE) to create the frameworks. The maps are the third and fourth of a series. The last map, for math, will be released later this year. The maps are awareness tools that show what 21st century skills look like in core subjects. The teacher-created vignettes help guide classroom practices in grades four, eight and 12, which link science and geography to the skills required for college and work.
