Looking for a balanced approach to teaching to engage all learners and revive a thematic approach to teaching? Ready to use your creativity and remember the joy of teaching?

Come learn how to create a Project Based Learning unit. PBL is an engaging and effective teaching method that motivates students to develop deep knowledge about content and provides teachers a framework for launching meaningful, authentic projects.  PBL is a research-based, effective method for integrating subjects and motivating all students. This session will start with a PBL unit simulation based on a relevant, timely adult topic:  teacher burnout and wellness. In this engaging session you’ll experience the steps of a PBL unit and then use tools to plan how to launch your own PBL unit.

Session will focus on:

*the steps for crafting a Project Based Learning unit

*new protocols to structure classroom conversation and support classroom management

*differentiated ways to help students read and build background knowledge

*formative assessment to empower student reflection and growth

*integrating technology to support differentiated project ideas

*strategies to collaborate and access community resources to enrich your     teaching

 

PLEASE BRING A DEVICE and potential social studies/science curriculum topics for your January/February 2020. Your facilitator will be Dr Megan Keiser, Associate Professor of Education at Brevard College. For more information, contact April at aspencer@wresa.org
