Indicator 4

Prior to each unit of study, teachers communicate to students the school’s applicable 21st century learning expectations and related unit-specific learning goals to be assessed.

What to Look for:

  • teachers articulate what students are expected to know and be able to demonstrate
  • teachers explain which of the school’s 21st century skills and expectations as well as content-based understandings and applications of knowledge that are required
  • teachers identify in all types of assignments using classroom and electronic postings, oral assignments, and major projects the specific 21st century learning expectations and/or course-specific expectations
