About this item

McDowell, a school district superintendent, former science and math teacher, and consultant on problem and project-based learning, outlines shifts to improve problem and project-based learning design and implementation, helping educators focus on actions that have the most chance of substantially impacting student learning in content literacy, as well as confidence in their learning. He describes practical steps to ensure students have a balance of surface, deep, and transfer understanding of content knowledge and skill, to also build self-confidence in their learning in terms of assessment-capable learning, a growth mindset, and collaboration. He focuses on shifts in the clarity of learning outcomes and success criteria, challenging students at their learning level by providing targeted instruction reflecting assessment data, and ensuring a culture that focuses on students taking ownership over their learning and acting as a resource to others. Sample projects and problems are incorporated throughout. Annotation ©2017 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
