Primary Grade Teachers (K-2) - The 4 Cs of 21st Century Learning

PRESENTER:  Greta Scharp - Mount Calvary, Waukesha

The job market of today's global economy requires a strong command of soft skills. Trusting the old adage, "Everything I ever needed to know I learned in kindergarten," it is up to us primary grade teachers to provide a solid foundation in soft skills. This collaborative sectional utilizes critical thinking to communicate a  general what, why, and how overview of the 4C's of 21st Century learning.  Together we will creatively explore ways to educate, encourage, and equip our primary grade students with skills for life and eternity.
