“The authors have provided a much needed guidebook for assessing some of the most important fluencies that lead to deeper learning.”

James A. Bellanca, President, Illinois Consortium for 21st Century Schools

“The crucial new skills and mindsets that learners need to flourish in 21st century life are clearly explained in this book. Crockett and Churches not only describe fluencies and explain their importance but also provide examples of assessment rubrics which will enable teachers to implement these fluencies in the classroom. This book will inspire and challenge teachers.”

Dr. Therese Keane, Senior Lecturer in Education, Swinburne University

“Crockett and Churches break down the four walls of the traditional schoolhouse and open up the world to teacher and student by creating global citizens. The project ideas contained throughout the book would make the cost worth it alone but add to that the comprehensive rubrics the authors include and the ways to create critical thinkers. They show step by step how to create life-long learners.”

Todd Stanley, Gifted Services Coordinator, Pickerington Local Schools

“How to assess 21st century fluencies enables educators to become activators of learning as they promote student mastery and skill development of the 7 Cs (creativity, critical thinking, collaboration, communication, character, cultural & ethical citizenship, and computer & digital technology).

“A very timely how-to book for educators looking for support in preparing students for the 21st century fluencies of solution, information, creativity, media, collaboration, and global digital citizenship.

“A must-read for educators changing their pedagogy to fit 21st century learning!

“How does a teacher utilize the assessment of 21st century fluencies to implement a learning environment conducive to preparing students for this new global society? This book is filled with exemplars of how to do it”
