Challenge Based Learning to Increase Middle School Student Engagement

09/04/2018 5:49 PM | Anonymous

Middle School is an ideal time for students to explore challenge based learning across the curriculum.  Challenge based learning has many benefits for students including increased engagement and content knowledge acquisition and is an ideal way to incorporate the eight science and engineering practices outlined by the Next Generation Science Standards. If you are interested in learning how to incorporate more challenge based learning into your middle school curriculum in any content area you will benefit from this professional development session from the learning specialists at EdAdvance‚Äôs Skills21. Skills21's evidence-based program has been recognized by the US Department of Education and the National Science Foundation as an exemplary model for driving student STEM success. Skills21 has worked with schools and communities in CT for nearly 20 years.

There is no cost for this professional development and we will serve a continental breakfast with tea and coffee and lunch.
