The Challenges of Bringing Essential Skills Learning to Students
Creating a system that can accommodate a wide range of learning contexts across a state can be difficult. Teachers and leaders in New Hampshire share how they are tackling the integration of essential skills (aka Work Study Practices or deeper learning) into their classrooms.
Building Essential Skills Today (BEST) for the Future is an effort to elevate the teaching and assessment of essential skills in our schools. Check out the project’s new video to hear what teachers and education leaders in New Hampshire are working to improve student essential skill learning.
BEST is a dynamic group of teachers and leaders in four New Hampshire school districts (Laconia, Rochester, Sanborn and Souhegan), the New Hampshire Learning Initiative (NHLI), JFF (Jobs for the Future), the Center for Innovation in Education (CIE), the New Hampshire Department of Education, and KnowledgeWorks and with funding from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation.
