11/7 Office, Collaboration, Hixson

Started the day working on my Project Based Learning Certification:

  • Watched the Webinar
  • Took some notes:
    • Be intentional with who is in your groups
    • Analyze strengths and weaknesses of students
    • groups can range in size to the amount of work you have to complete.  Groups can be from sizes of 2 all the way up and over 10
    • Small groups can transition to large group or whole class projects
    • Voice and Choice are crucial - but also rely on the maturity and responsibility of students
    • Starting students with the roles they want to take will allow the groups to form
  • Chose the Project I will be modeling and sharing called "Choose your own adventure"
  • Completed Yourteams assignment
  • Contacted WGHS SS re veterens day activities
  • Worked on St. Louis Science Leadership Consortium website
