Read the project description to get a detailed understanding of the project so that you can follow along with your student. Some of you may be thinking: After I see the projects my student is working on in the platform, what do I do next? Answer: Ask them lot of questions.
- What is the project and checkpoint asking you to do?
- What’s the work product you’re working on? Show me.
- What is your evidence for the skills being measured in your work product?
- What score do you think you will get and why?
- What could you do to improve your work products?
At the end of a project:
- Ask your student the essential questions to learn more about their perspective and understanding of the topic
- Ask your student what they learned about those the enduring understanding statements and how they learned them
- Discuss with your student your own opinions and experiences with the topic
You don’t need to know the content knowledge or have answers to their projects to support your student well. The best way you can support your student is to help them reflect, explain their work, and become a better self-directed learner. To do that, you just need to know what projects they are working on in their platform and ask A LOT of questions.
