21st Century Literacies

21st Century Literacies


The term "21st Century Literacies" refers to the skills needed to flourish in today's society and in the future. This site focuses on four such literacies, which it labels: information, media, multicultural, and visual literacy. The site contains many resources, both bibliographic and Web-based, to assist you in your quest to learn and/or teach these literacy skills. The tools presented here are based on a 21st Century Literacies Framework and seek to promote the skills, knowledge and attitudes to help students develop effective lifelong literacy awareness, seeking, management and presentation strategies. Under each literacy area is a chart with rich lessons, divided by grade levels.
