Project-Based Learning for District Schools -- ROOM 215

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Before teaching at a charter school devoted to project-based learning, I spent three years creating and implementing projects with my second and third grade students in a district school. During that time, students published a book on Amazon, produced an activity book to distribute at local businesses, and played an active role in their local school board election -- meeting candidates, registering voters, and knocking on doors. In each project, I followed a similar process: posing an essential question, providing scaffolds for difficult texts, facilitating interviews and field work opportunities, teaching any necessary skills, leading critique sessions, and helping students prepare their work for public consumption. The results were experiences that fostered deeper learning and engaged students, while allowing them to exceed grade-level standards. Please join me for an extended conversation in which I discuss my system for planning and executing projects in a context with relatively more constraints and share resources.
