The introductions to both the English language arts and mathematics CCSS include descriptions of 21st Century Competencies. These cognitive and psychological aptitudes are described in the English language arts standards as "Capacities" and in the mathematics standards as "Practices.". These are referred to as "Habits of Mind" which operate in tandem with the academic content in the standards. These "Habits of Mind" offer a portrait of students who will graduate socially aware, civic-minded, as literate citizens who are ready for college, career and life in the 21st Century.
