Posts from the ‘Documents’ Category
As an emerging teacher I had a strong passion for project-based teaching and learning. I taught the life sciences, and this strategy made a great deal of sense to me. My students were engaged and were mostly interested in the classroom content and using it to help develop their products. I did not realize my issue with this strategy until years later as a facilitator of professional learning. My problem was that whenever I assigned a project, my students were creating this product for me. I had neglected an important aspect of project-based learning; the audience.
