humans Which skill should folks master? Develop learning objectives Choose a project that shows they’ve mastered that objective, set criteria for success. Design an assessment Content, exercises, support that will help them reach the assessment. Select relevant activities
Here’s what saves you time and effort: Starting with the performance of understanding builds a project-based experience. APPLICATION, NOT RECALL START WITH LEARNER NEEDS FOCUS YOUR ACTIVITIES Students want to learn a discrete thing. Value to learner in this framework is clear. Easily determine which new content and exercises are in bounds and out.. 1 2 3
describe the origami sculpture. Solve related math problems. Example: Geometry acute angles. Creation of an origami sculpture scored by the rubric. Students explain the sequence of folding the sculpture. Correct solution(s) of the follow- up math questions. Example: Criteria for successful sculpture Your assessment
a vision for the workshop day. 2. Line participants up in two lines, have them face each other. 3. Introduce yourself to the person in front of you, share what you want to get out of the day. 4. The line on the right advances one person forward every 30 seconds.
get everyone to build criteria for what makes a successful project. 1. Ask people to ﬁnd an excellent example of a successful project. 2. Ask them to document what makes it good. 3. Build a collaborative rubric together to assess future projects.
a great technique for iterating on a project over the course of the workshop. 1. Ask learners about a project idea they want to work on. 2. Introduce new perspectives, or increased complexity over each phase. 3. Ask learners to revisit or revise their idea in light of the new concept. 4. FYI the worksheet for this workshop is “Build as you go.”
describe the origami sculpture. Solve related math problems. Example: Geometry acute angles. Creation of an origami sculpture scored by the rubric. Students explain the sequence of folding the sculpture. Correct solution(s) of the follow- up math questions. Example: Criteria for successful sculpture Your activity Have students describe the folding process using geometric terms, e.g., faces, symmetry, edges, rectangle, triangle, etc. as they apply to your chosen Origami. Example: Think, pair share for the creation process.
Make it crispy and concrete. ASSESSMENT How will you know they’ve mastered it? What will they be able to make? Choose an activity that will kickstart their understanding. SPECTOGRAM THINK * PAIR * SHARE MAKE THE QUILT BUILD AS YOU GO @MOZZADRELLA
1. When people go around and introduce themselves, draw a sketch of the table and write their names around it. 2. That way you’ll have a cheat sheet of their names, and they will feel included. 1. Print the darn thing out and bring copies with you. 2. Include your name and contact info on the sheet. 3. Working on pen and paper keeps people focused, and they have a concrete takeaway to reference later. BE THE WELCOME WAGON 1. Stand by the door and say hi to people as they come in. Ask why they came. 2. Reference those particular pain points or examples in your workshop. @MOZZADRELLA
