OHIO JOINS PARTNERSHIP FOR 21ST CENTURY SKILLS

Internet access to primary source documents and original artifacts is transforming teaching methods for students at all levels of education across the U.S. These materials provide opportunities for students to develop creativity and critical thinking, problem solving, and communication skills. In October, Governor Strickland announced that Ohio was poised to become the 14th state to join the Partnership for 21st Century Skills (P21), the leading national organization focused on integrating 21st Century Skills into core subjects. The Hayes Presidential Center, with its emphasis on education through its collections of primary source photographs, documents and original artifacts, currently assist teachers in integrating these very skills into their curricula. They are at the core our new Curriculum Connections program, "We the People" Initiatives, Internship Programs, distance learning collaborations, exhibits , and our Ohio History Day partnership. Follow this link to our Education Page. You will find links to a multitude of online resources recommended by the Ohio Council for the Social Studes for integrating 21st Century Skills into Social Studies Curriculum.
