This report documents the second of two studies on teaching and learning generic skills in high school. The initial exploratory study (MDS-066) examined classroom instruction in both vocational and academic classrooms where teaching generic skills is an instructional goal. The authors hope this study will contribute to future thinking about teaching generic skills and provide a starting point for designing curricula and courses that teach these important skills. The study should be of interest to educators, policymakers, and researchers who are involved in efforts to reform secondary schools in ways that better prepare students for education, work, and lifelong learning.
