  • In chat, tell where you’re from/role in edn
  • Do survey; explain roles; everyone can go farther/deeper
  • Record N2Ks
  • Brain break!
  • Doesn’t necessarily mean letting same friends work together. Help them develop real collaboration skills, figure out how to contribute to team, resolve their own conflicts. Help them develop voice to disagree w/classmates, to not like someone else’s idea (and say why), to disagree or build on. Takes courage. Shoe design examples: had to bond in short time, pitch in a way that brought out all their ideas, contributions. High pressure—but effective. “Courage” was main takeaway.
  • Start w/kernel of project ideas that come from students’ passions or questions. (Corner of whiteboard, suggestion box) Engage students as reviewers—would they want to do a project? How improve it? Involve students in planning assessment: write rubrics together; assess work samples; define excellence
  • Discussion
  • Facilitator; we’re in this together—it’s “our” project, not mine or yours
  • End in mind: Ideal graduate? What preparing students for?
