Praise for 21st Century Skills

"Trilling and Fadel describe in very readable, practical terms how to infuse 21st century skills from standards all the way into the classroom. The DVD is full of wonderful 'a-ha' moments to illustrate the possibilities. A terrific traveling companion for educators, parents, and business and government decision makers concerned about the future of our kids." —Paige Johnson, 2009 Chair of the Partnership for 21st Century Skills; Global K–12 Manager, Intel Corporation

"Hooray to Bernie Trilling and Charles Fadel for demystifying 21st century skills. Thisbook makes clear why education must change: to help prepare students to meet complex challenges, fulfill their civic responsibilities, and live fulfilling lives. Full of crisp descriptions, 21st Century Skills persuasively shows why policymakers and educators should run—not walk—to implement 21st century learning designs. As Trilling and Fadel simply put it, it's time to give all students the chance to learn how to build a better world."—John Wilson, executive director, National Education Association

"Trilling and Fadel lay out a comprehensive understanding of what is meant by 21st century skills. Read this book with a note pad—you'll be jotting down ideas for how to use the information in your school district. A must-read for superintendents, curriculum directors, and teachers." —Anne L. Bryant, executive director, National School Boards Association

"Trilling and Fadel take the 21st century skills debate beyond rhetoric, providing a substantive, compelling, and engaging argument for the skills and competencies that our children need to succeed in a Knowledge Age economy. The skills they describe are the essential lifeblood of a productive, engaged, and intelligent citizenry—this book is a must-read for skeptics and enthusiasts alike!"—Margaret Honey, president and CEO, New York Hall of Science
