Incorporating Emerging Content


The framework established by the Partnership for 21st Century Learning guided much of the work as we revised the WV Content Standards and Objectives. The classrooms teachers who revised the content standards and objectives in all content areas participated in professional development that would increase their understanding of global awareness; financial, economic and business literacy; civic literacy; and personal health and wellness. This emerging 21st century content was integrated into the content standards and objectives when appropriate. Furthermore, WVDE has been working with classroom teachers to design instructional resources that promote student understanding of the emerging contents at all grade levels in all subjects. These resources are posted on Teach21.
