Project Based Learning, Genius Hour, & 20% Time: How to Individualize Student Learning

October 28, 2016

This #2ndaryELA Twitter chat was all about individualizing student learning through project based learning (PBL), genius hour, and 20% time. Middle school and high school English Language Arts teachers discussed the types of individualized learning they use in their classroom, and  how they got started and introduced it to students. Teachers also shared past PBL units, final projects, successes and obstacles.

Read through the chat below for ways to spark students' interest and project based learning topics to connect with classroom curriculum. You'll get ideas about end products that are both engaging and rigorous. You'll also find advice on what works and tips for overcoming challenges.

Hope you'll join us next Tuesday November 1st at 8pm EST to talk about independent reading and engaging readers. We'd also love for you to join our 2ndaryELA Facebook group (even if you aren't on Twitter). 2ndaryELA is a group of middle and high school English Language Arts teachers looking to share ideas and best practices. This group is an extension of our Twitter chat and a place for collaboration, questions, and encouragement. Feel free to post teaching ideas, success stories, resource links, photos, etc. that will enhance our instruction.
