Duprey - Project-Based High School Government: Rigor and Engagement

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

Inspired by everything you've heard at BLC? See how one high school teacher moved from the theoretical to the practical.

Take Alan November's frameworks for building learning communities and examine a real classroom's attempts to put Alan's principles into practice. Specific assignments, project design, student work samples, and areas for continued improvement will all be shared. A rural AP US Government class (in an AP-For-All school) will serve as the case study. In this session, I will compare and contrast my class before and after attending BLC. See how three units were transformed from worksheets to dynamic projects with students documenting their own learning using blogs, digital magazines, and recorded conversations. Successful and less successful student work will be shared, including reflections on improvements for next year based on this first year experience.
