When Work is Play: Investigating Student-Centered Project Time

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

In this high-stakes accountability climate, how is learning made visible when students actually get to choose, design, and reflect on their own questions, projects, and collaborations?

How do teachers use descriptive review to reflect on the ways we nurture authentic choice while also holding expectations?

You will leave with inspiration, tools, and habits of work and mind for cultivating children's work-play, and for engaging in collaborative inquiry with your colleagues.
