I agree with Wagner's 7 survival skills for school. I agree that Problem Solving and Critical thinking are very important. To me this means the ability to think beyond the surface of a situation, to be able to analyze the information and come to a conclusion about it. This is a very important skill for life that will allow students to become the leaders of the future. The second survival skill is collaboration. This skill is extremely important. The ability to work with others to further a goal and to be a productive member of the collaboration is very important as it is what a lot of businesses are looking for in their employees. This will also allow them to be good citizens who can contribute to society as a whole. Another survival sill is the ability to adapt. This is very important as it will help the students to be able to face any kind of situation that they may encounter in the future by being able to adapt to it. Students also need to be able to have initiative. They need to be able to figure out what is needed before it is needed so that employers' will see them as valuable employees. We need to help students to develop their written and oral communication skills so that they will be able to be coherent when they are talking to others. This will allow them to get any ideas they have to other people and to be able to collaborate with others effectively. Students also need to be able to access and analyze information. This means that they need to be able to understand and interpret any information they are given and be able to utilize the information where it is needed. The final survival skills are curiosity and Imagination. These I would say are the two most important survival skills that Wagner talks about. Curiosity is very important as it will make students be incredibly motivated to learn on their own. Imagination is important as it will allow students to think of their own ideas and to be able to innovate and become leaders in their fields. I think that these survival skills are sufficient. I would work with my students by giving them multiple activities over time to allow them to develop these skills. I would start off by scaffolding the activities then as time went on I would remove the scaffolds so that they develop their skills even more. I would like to especially make sure that I develop my students Creativity and Imagination because I believe that students need these skills the most.
