Strategy: Lifelong-Learning Standards

Integrating non-cognitive standards into instruction to help Learners thrive as people

Context

Lindsay Unified School District has developed non-cognitive standards called “Lifelong-Learning Standards,” which are integrated into learning modules across all schools in the district. Lindsay Unified believes that mastery of these standards will be necessary to develop as an adult who can thrive in the 21st century. These standards are:

  • A Well-Balanced Person (The Personal Sphere)
  • A Self-Directed, Lifelong Learner (The Learning Sphere)
  • A Caring, Compassionate Person (The Relationship Sphere)
  • A Civic-Minded Person (The Civic Sphere)
  • A Responsible Global Citizen (The Global Sphere)
  • A Quality Producer & Resource Manager (The Economic Sphere)
  • A Culturally Aware Person (The Cultural Sphere)
