My problem of practice is that my learners were not learning and growing to their fullest potential in both content and necessary future ready skills – 21st century and process skills to prepare them for postsecondary life outside of my classroom. I teach many high school learners with exceptionalities. I sought to alter my instruction and ensure that learners’ learning opportunities were meaningful. My aim was to improve my ability to teach and assess learners’ future ready process skills in my high school biology classroom. The specific future ready process skill of focus for this study was interpersonal communication.

In this study, learners were exposed to future ready skills in activities using the POGIL (Process Oriented Guided Inquiry Learning) framework.
