The Assessment Gap in Career and College Readiness — Whole Child Education


The Assessment Gap in Career and College Readiness — Whole Child Education
(Click link above to go to this article.)

 This is an interesting article and we see this in our school system also with the students. Education needs to work on building on Critical Thinking Skills. It is no longer acceptable for students to just know information but they also need to be able to apply what they know. Also I think Dr. Schmoker brings up good points about if we want to close the achievement gap that we need student to be able to Read then Talk about what they read and then to be able to write about it in a meaningful way.
