20% Projects Produce
Student Engagement and Creativity
My classroom needs to change!
To be engaging and relevant.
How can we do this in a meaningful way?
Typical 20% project
Begin with a driving question. What do they wonder about?
Interesting to them= buy in!
Hardest to develop. Not a google answered question/problem! This can take several class periods.
Come up with a project that is of interest to you. Will hold your attention for a long period of time.
Key: Student interest- not teacher directed
Teams or individuals- Must be similar in interest- direction.
Why 20% projects?
own topics, timeline, products, presentation
guided toward topic, scheduled timeline, similar products, etc.
20% = one day /week
Fridays in my classroom
