Workshop – Deeper Civic Learning: A Project-Based Learning Approach
November 14 at 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Date: Tuesday, November 14, 2023, 4:00-6:00 pm ET
Description: This workshop is an opportunity for teachers to strengthen their understanding of project-based learning (PBL) in the context of the Democratic Knowledge Project’s framework for deeper civic learning & student-led civic projects. While the focus will be on supporting students to design and carry out civics-focused projects, participants will be able to incorporate the principles and strategies of project-based learning into other aspects of their classrooms. This is a hands-on workshop designed to help participants develop or revise plans for an upcoming civics-related project. The workshop will begin with an overview of the elements of project-based learning to support deeper civic learning and will then support you in using these elements to design or revise curricular plans for implementing civics-related projects in your own context. The workshop is designed to be appropriate for both teachers who are new to using project-based learning to support deeper civic learning, as well as those who are looking for ways to review and revise their previous approaches.
Facilitators: Katie Piper, History Teacher, Lakeside School, Seattle and Amber Graeber, Instructional Coach, Des Moines Public Schools
