This chapter focuses on POGIL's extension and application in non-science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines. POGIL has been used in a wide variety of non-STEM disciplines such as marketing, German language, financial literacy, information literacy, aviation, programming, entrepreneurship, urban education, and family science. The ACTFL standards are often referred to as the five Cs because they are centered on communication, cultures, connections, comparisons, and communities. While the Search Strategies and Information Evaluation activity involves teamwork and critical thinking, it is primarily designed to help develop information-processing skills. The Standards document states that it “provides a framework for assessing the information literate individual”. Knowledge practices are the learning goals related to each threshold concept. Based on the success of using POGIL in L2 learning and information literacy, and the evidence of learning in many other non-STEM disciplines, instructors in middle school, secondary education, and post-secondary education, in any discipline, can and should consider using POGIL in their classroom.
