Tony Wagner, Coordinator of the Change Leadership Group at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, writes in the October 2008 edition of Educational Leadership that "students need to master seven survival skills to thrive in the new world of work." Many of the seven skills are similar to the NETS for Students published in 2007. As you read through the Mr. Wagner's seven skills, which do you see as being most vital in your classroom? Which do you think are already tested or encouraged by our current curriculum? Which ones do you see our curriculum moving towards? Or which do you see our curriculum hindering?
