Session Strands

Across the PLC, schools and districts are placing students at the center of their work in a variety of ways
and elevating student voice in the learning process. These sessions will highlight practices, strategies, and structures designed to position students as leaders of their own learning.

How do you build on pockets of innovation to transform a system to prepare every student for college,
career, and life in the 21st century? Many members have developed a Portrait of a Graduate that provides a strategic direction for the redesign of the overall educational experience for students. This strand will highlight effective strategies for developing a Portrait of a Graduate, aligning systems to support that vision, as well as practices and dispositions essential in leading 4Cs transformation work.

EdLeader21 believes that the 4Cs are essential for EVERY student. EdLeader21 member schools and
districts are working diligently to remove barriers and provide ALL students with access and opportunities to develop the 4Cs. These sessions will focus on what it means to apply an equity lens to 4Cs implementation.

A variety of teaching and learning models, methods, and practices create a context for the 4Cs. From
designing interdisciplinary units to creating authentic learning experiences, these sessions will focus on effective ways to integrate the 4Cs into curriculum, instruction, assessment, and professional learning.
