For part of our school's Project Zero learning group, I've been asked to present about Expectations and the Personal Project. We've been using the book "Creating Cultures of Thinking: The 8 Forces We Must Master to Truly Transform Our Schools" for the year or two and I get so much out of it every time I open it! With my 'PP Coordinator' hat on, I thought about how we give clear expectations to support our students in producing a high quality product/outcome and report, but more importantly, having them focus on the process. The skills that our student develops during this long project are really the most important part of the PP! Process > Product!
Here's my three minute video. (I could have easily made this much longer and much more detailed, but wanted to challenge myself to stick with the instructed time limit!)
