Transforming Classrooms


man with sign for transformed classroomsThe Task

Your mission is to:

Select a piece of classroom instruction you already feel comfortable teaching. Consider a new unit that’s evolving or an existing unit you’ve used for years.

Examine your existing instructional materials in-depth and identify ways that it can be enhanced by:

  • focusing on essential questions and content,
  • building testing connections,
  • incorporating proven teaching and learning techniques, and
  • integrating effective technology tools and resources.

Create and implement this project-based learning environment with your students.

Reflect on the experience. Then, build an electronic scrapbook documenting your experience enhancing your instructional materials and trying them out with students in your classroom.

Share your experience with others.
