How do you prepare students to be engaged, active, and empowered young adults? Creating a classroom atmosphere that encourages students to pursue critical inquiry and the many skills it requires demands artful planning on the part of the teacher. But it also means that students are likely to pursue ideas and projects that could make educators uncomfortable. How do we square that circle?
Join Peter DeWitt when he sits down with high school social studies teacher Matthew Cone and two of his graduating students for a thoughtful conversation on creating powerful project-based learning and a classroom atmosphere in which it can thrive.
