The Partnership for 21st Century Skills - Home. (n.d.). The Partnership for 21st Century Skills - Home. Retrieved April 13, 2010, from http://www.p21.org/

Summary: The Partnership for 21st Century Skills is a national organization created by the U.S. Department of Education alongside several high tech and educational companies and the NEA. They are working with states, districts, and schools to integrate critical thinking and problem solving, communication, collaboration, and creativity with current curriculum standards to prepare students to become globally competitive. This website provides tools and resources for anyone interested in 21st century skills.

Evaluation/ Reflection: This website is a great starting point when looking for ways to connect students to the skills they will need to be successful in a global economy. This partnership between education, community, and business seems to be the model for education reform throughout the U.S. Many states are using this program to redefine education in the 21st century.
