Limited Capacity seats available

Self-direction includes a set of skills that students can learn through project work.  However, teachers must explicitly plan and teach students to set criteria, make decisions, plan, and self-evaluate their work.  Teaching for Intellectual and Emotional Learning (TIEL) will provide a framework for teaching the thinking and social emotional skills that students develop through project work.

Participants will learn how to:
• Set criteria with students
• Plan a project over time
• Teach students to use criteria to evaluate a project
• Use the TIEL framework for teaching a wide range of thinking and social emotional processes through project work

For this session, teachers need to bring a unit that they would like to transform into a project-based unit or an idea for a new unit that can include a project that they can plan.
