Any online search for "21st-century skills" produces a wealth of graphics, lists, and tips. The internet is a treasure trove of literacy activities that build upon these skills, including the abilities to read, write, synthesize information, make critical judgments, and present learning. But what about students who do not engage eagerly in reading and writing, resisting because of lack of skills, confidence, or interest? Kindling a spark of interest can be difficult, and the last thing we want to do is extinguish it.
