How can I support my child as they work on Projects?

As a parent/guardian, you may be wondering what to do after you've learned about the Projects your child is working on.

We encourage you to use the Academic Check-ins at Home resource.

At the end of a Project, you may also want to:

  • Ask your child the essential questions from the Project to learn more about their perspective and understanding of the subject matter
  • Ask your child what they learned about the Enduring Understanding statements from the Project and how they learned them
  • Discuss with your child your own opinions and experiences on the subject matter
  • Reflect with your student about how well they managed their work and time during the completion of this project. Did they turn each Checkpoint and the Final Product in on time? If yes, what actions did they take to make that happen?

You don’t need to be an expert on the Content Knowledge covered in your child's Projects in order to support them well. The best way you can support your child is to help them reflect, explain their work, and become a better self-directed learner.
