Step 5: Focus Your Curriculum, Focus Your Assessment

September 2013 — In Step 5, the emphasis is on integrating the 4Cs (communication, collaboration, creativity and critical thinking) into curriculum and assessment. Although curriculum and assessment are interconnected, Step 5 is covered over two webinars. Valerie Greenhill, Chief Learning Officer of Edleader21, and Barbara Stein, Director of Strategic Partnerships for P21, moderated two panels of education leaders who shared strategies and tools that can be used to embed the 4Cs into curricula.
