Lucente - The Struggle is Real: Lessons Learned From Our First Year Of Passion Projects

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Hear from three secondary teachers as they explain the challenges and successes of implementing passion projects in the classroom. Learn how to let go of control in the classroom in order to give students ownership of their learning, by encouraging students to research and explore whatever they want (while still covering the curriculum)! You will walk away with an understanding of how to get started, how to prepare, and how to overcome passion project challenges. Presenters will show video footage of students in action and examples of student work.
