Framework for 21st Century Learning: A Vision for 21st Century Student Success====21st Century Learners have the actions, attitudes, and skills that allow them to communicate, collaborate and create effectively.====

Well developed 21st Century Learners have specific capacities in:

  • Creativity and Innovation

  • Communication and Collaboration

  • Critical Thinking, Problem Solving, and Decision Making

  • Digital Citizenship

  • Research and Information Fluency

  • Technology Operations and Concepts

Effective 21st Century Educators offer authentic, relevant learning experiences that support the development of these skills.

As you explore the North Carolina Professional Teaching Standards, you will find that these practices and expectations for students are interwoven into the standards set forth for North Carolina teachers.

Understanding the Standards

Teacher Evaluation Rubric


  • Standards Self-Assessment
  • Standards Poster Activity

Activity #3 - Standards Self-Assessment



a) Take five minutes to review the North Carolina Professional Teaching Standards.

As you read about each standard, reflect on your personal strengths and areas for improvement. Using a notecard at your table, rate yourself in order of the standard with which you feel most knowledgeable to the standard with which you are the least comfortable.

b) Make your way to the poster with the standard of your greatest strength. Share with others in your Standard Group why you have chosen this standard as your strength. On the top of the poster, each participant should graffiti write experiences, expertise, or other reasons each thinks this standard is his/her strength.

c) Make your way to the poster with the standard that is your second greatest strength. Read the information already on the poster. Repeat the steps in "b" above by discussing with colleagues your rationale for ranking this standard your second strongest. Then, add any additional thoughts to the top of the poster.

d) Now, move to the poster that you chose as your weakest standard. Read the comments other participants have added to the poster. Discuss with colleagues why you think this standard offers you the most potential for growth. At the bottom of the poster, add reasons why you are least comfortable with this standard.


Activity #4 - Sample Behaviors and Personal Commitment

On the reverse side of your note card where you ranked your level of strength with each standard, take a few moments to think about areas for improvement.

Reflect on the group conversations, your own self-assessment, and the standards themselves.

Take five minutes to write a personal commitment for the 2012-13 school year.
