Webinar: Weaving Project-Based Learning Into Rigorous High School Courses

August 14, 2018 1:04:27

Many schools are keen on incorporating project-based learning into their curriculum, reasoning that the exploratory, hands-on lessons engage students and promote collaboration and independent thinking. This webinar will explore an attempt to integrate project-based learning into the high school curriculum, through an approach called Knowledge in Action. The program, designed by a researchers at the University of Washington in collaboration with high school teachers, incorporates project-based learning within Advanced Placement courses. We look at the program’s approach, and its implications for the teaching of project-based learning in rigorous courses at the high school level, and how one district AP coordinator uses Knowledge in Action in her district.
