Limited Capacity full

How can we keep sinkholes from swallowing us up? In this immersive workshop, participants will take a deep dive into science and experience the power of project-based learning to ignite engagement and develop deeper understanding of core scientific concepts. The workshop is constructed so participants will “learn while doing” as they explore a middle school PBL unit on Sinkholes. The experience will include a launch lesson and several activities that demonstrate how wet labs and text-based tasks work in concert to build knowledge about the phenomenon of sinkholes. Learn how to ensure your PBL approach isn’t exclusively “hands-on” but also develops students who can read, write, and argue scientifically. During this workshop, participants will develop an understanding of PBL that prioritizes cohesion and alignment between Essential Questions, standards, project tasks, and assessment of learning. Walk away with a model unit (Sinkholes) and tools to support student agency and deeper learning through project-based teaching and learning. This workshop will be facilitated by curriculum designers from Educurious, a Seattle-based non-profit that designs and supports PBL instruction with the goal of making learning meaningful, relevant, and rigorous.
