Teacher-Led to Student-Owned Projects

Ever do a project with students and they've all ended up with basically the same outcome? Where everything looks the same?


🤷🏼‍♀️Don't worry, it's happened to me, too.


Sure, kids are a little more engaged than normal lessons; they get to make something, present for an audience, maybe be creative.


🤔But have they really OWNED the project?

😳Have they just done another version of following directions from a teacher?


Project-based learning gives us a golden opportunity to engage students with authentic learning. It's a chance to put kids in the drivers seat and have THEM make decisions about what is meaningful to their lives. It gives THEM the chance to come up with their own conclusions about the world.


💡So, how do we design projects that move from teacher-led (following directions) to student-owned?


Here are 5 simple-ish ways to let go of control and transfer ownership to students in project-based learning.
