21st Century Literacy project
21st Century Literacy can mean many things, but basically it is the skills students need to succeed in school and the workplace in today’s world. Our focus is on the reading and writing skills teenagers need and can be taught using journalistic methods and new digital tools. Other educational groups focus on other elements of 21st Century literacy, including digital media production, transmedia, and content creation.
We choose to focus on text, and our curricular units will help you to do so in your classroom.
