Redirect questions to sources, not answers That’s a great question, where do you think we could find the answer? 3. Be consistent - both in PBL, and daily learning Don’t introduce everything at once Do I need 6 sources? Would it strengthen your paper?
  18. Start Small • Test the waters to understand your students: ➡The drawing test ➡Pretest on technical and academic skills. • First problem or project - focus on finding resources and independent work
  19. Maximize Class time d o w h a t y o u d o b e s t : T e a c h
  20. Maximize Classroom Time What can student NOT DO at home? -Flip your classroom -Invite community speaker -Make pre-class preparation critical to class time activity -Reimagine what the classroom looks like!
  21. The Challenge: Limit yourself to 10 minutes a day of entire-class instruction. Not for everyone: Teach a day without speaking. You’ll be amazed at what you learn about your teaching style, and your students.
  22. Classrooms can look like:
  23. Differentiating M e e t i n g t h e d i v e r s e n e e d s o f l e a r n e r s
  24. PBL - Differentiated Lesson Quick wins for meetings varied student needs: Peer Learning Groups A small group of students are working together on a problem/ project. Groupings are by skill level, and problem is specific to the needs of students. Scaffolded Problems PBL lessons fall on a continuum. Some students will walk through the lesson, others may sprint. They will finish in different places, and that’s okay.
  25. Who needs what? What if you could spend an extra 5 minutes a day with each of your struggling students? You can! • If you are a sage-on-the-stage: Clone yourself. • Student-directed learning frees you up to focus on student support. • If you use Blended Learning - Teach students to find the right level of content
