In this assignment, you need to think about 21st century support systems, the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), and International Society for Technology in Education Student (Links to an external site.) (ISTE-S) standards and their relationship with quality instructional planning, delivery, and learner achievement. Using the Framework for 21st Century learning (Links to an external site.) as a resource, you will redesign or modify a prior activity, such as a lesson plan or curriculum project, that you created in a prior course.

As needed, refer to your program learning outcomes (PLOs) list (MACI, MAECEL, MAED, MASE, MATLT).

NOTE* Before you select the PLO’s you will highlight in this assignment, be sure to read the final assignment for this course to ensure that you will cover each of your programs PLOs adequately.
