    is21videoVideo introduction to Issues 21, featuring Series Editor 
    Jeffrey D. Wilhelm

    Issues 21 is a dynamic, cutting-edge literacy series that dares students to imagine a world where change is possible and, when equipped with the right knowledge, skills, and tools, they can make it happen.

    Issues 21 offers teachers the resources they need to meet content and literacy needs while making learning provocative and meaningful. Each book features an essential question that provokes an examination of an issue from different perspectives. Students will have opportunities to discover innovative ways of understanding, confronting, and addressing issues they really care about; and to develop 21st century competencies: critical thinking, creativity, communication, collaboration, character, and ethical citizenship.

    There are four categories: Health, Environment, Human Rights, and Culture & Media, allowing the resource to be used in multiple curriculum areas. All of the 24 titles offer engaging, thought-provoking texts and visuals such as mind maps, graphics, and photographs. Each book is divided into three sections:

    � Step 1�The Issue 
    � Step 2�Game Changers 
    � Step 3�Take Action

    The teaching support focuses on questions that address the intersection of curriculum, identity and self, and social justice.

    Each student book...

    Is an interdisciplinary resource raising issues that build on literacy, media literacy, science, social studies, and math.


    Develops 21st century skills, as well as crucial reading, writing, and oral communication skills necessary to navigate today's rapidly changing media-driven environment.
    Promotes an inquiry approach to engage and deepen student understanding.
    Integrates a social justice piece where students will evaluate existing power structures, events, and practices from multiple perspectives; they will make decisions and take action to address issues personally, locally, and globally.

    Creates opportunities for students to discoverinnovative ways of understanding, confronting, and addressing issues they care about.
