My latest Fusion blog post describes a student who was ahead of her class and ahead of her time when it came to developing 21st century skills – Hermione Granger of the Harry Potter series. Though there were a few teachers in the series who weren’t very appreciative of Hermione’s many admirable qualities (notably Severus Snape, Dolores Umbridge, and Sybil Trelawney), I imagine a majority of non-fictional teachers would be quite charmed to have Hermione in their class! Read this post to learn more about how to encourage your own Hermiones, Rons, Harrys, and other students to communicate, collaborate, create, and think critically.
