Framework for 21st Century Curriculum and Assessment
Updated February 2013 Adopted by the NCTE Executive Committee November 19, 2008 Context for NCTE’s 21st Century Literacies Framework In the 1990s, the National Council of Teachers of English and the International Reading Association established national standards for English language arts learners that anticipated the more sophisticated literacy skills and abilities required for full participation in a global, 21st century community. The selected standards, listed in the appendix, served as a clarion call for changes underway today in literacy education. The NCTE definition of 21st century literacies makes it clear that the continued evolution of curriculum, assessment, and teaching practice itself is necessary: Literacy has always been a collection of cultural and communicative practices shared among members of particular groups. Elements of the Framework Implications of the Framework for Assessments Appendix: 1. 2. 3. 6. 7. 8. 10. 12.
