Engaging Students in Wrestling with Authentic Issues
Module Eight - What is the plan?
It is not enough to study the problem. We expect students to come up with a plan - one that is worth pursuing and one that they might present to a community board or agency capable of translating their suggestions into action.
Unlike much school research that seems to go no where and fail the test of "So what?" Problem-based investigations are mean to lead to action.
The groups weighs the pros and cons of various options and then develops an action plan complete with time-lines and strategies.
Find three action plans for your project topic (Using Google) and make a list of the traits of an effective plan. How could you engage students in developing rubrics for a good action plan?
Next module. Please do not proceed until asked to do so by the workshop leader.
