Real-World Projects: How do I design relevant and engaging learning experiences? (ASCD Arias)
The longer students stay in the school, the less engaged they are in the learning process. Among students who describe school as boring, a key complaint is a lack of relevance.
Project-based learning has the potential to reverse this trend, but real-world project-based learning doesn’t happen by accident. With careful planning, teachers can design more relevant learning experiences and also address key content.
In this webinar, author Suzie Boss will outline strategies to help you plan for more authentic, relevant learning experiences. She’ll discuss how to design academically rigorous projects that are ripped from the headlines; why relevance doesn’t mean “all about me;” and how to use the 3 A’s to guide students toward meaningful action.
