7. Sample - 21st Century Skills Maps
The Partnership for 21st Century skills has forged alliances with key national organizations that represent the core academic subjects, including Social Studies, English, Math, Science, Geography and the Arts. As a result of these collaborations, the Partnership has developed these maps to illustrate the intersection between 21st Century Skills and the various content areas. The maps will enable educators, administrators and policymakers to gain concrete examples of how 21st Century Skills can be integrated into subjects.
