Secondary classes are driven by large amounts of content specific standards and expectations as well as high stakes exams where passing grades are necessary to graduate high school. Teachers and students can find it difficult to navigate the world of high stakes testing while still using inquiry based approaches to teaching and learning. This session will provide participants with strategies for using authentic real world problems in their classes to help students foster critical thinking skills while still mastering content needed for these high stakes tests. An emphasis will be on differentiation and student centered learning. Participants will walk away with resources and digital tools that can help make the transition to a student – centered, problem based learning classroom environment possible.
