GC symposium to focus discussions on 21st century literacy

(Continued)

MILLEDGEVILLE —

“The Wednesday evening event is going to be very positive appreciative inquiry approach to the question of, “are we making progress in Baldwin County in our educational system?,” said Kaufman, who will moderate the academic achievement panel discussion. “While the three R’s, reading, writing and arithmetic, informed 19th and 20th century teaching, 21st century education must add the four C’s, which are critical thinking and problem solving, communication, collaboration and creativity. We must prepare students for multiple careers and the ability to adapt to change.”

At 8 p.m., the public can share ideas and have an input in the conversation about literacy within one of four discussion groups focusing on health, nutrition and fitness literacy, race as a factor in Baldwin County’s education culture, workforce development, and the key literacy skills needed and expected as students move into the 21st century.

“I hope people not only gain appreciation for a variety of literacy information, but I hope they are inspired to become involved in their local communities to advance literacy for those who don’t have a formal education and those who are in schools,” Kaufman said.
