Session Description

By using the concept of projects to demonstrate student knowledge (product, presentation or performance), participants will learn how this instructional strategy addresses learning goals for both English Learners and students served in the Special Education programs. Participants will develop cross-curricular units that embed research to investigate or find a solution to a real-world issue or situation while also helping students demonstrate the 4Cs- cooperation, collaboration, critical thinking and creativity. The participants will also learn how to develop rubrics for assessment and how to design cooperative learning groups.
