The Project Experience
Whole-group learning, small-group collaboration, and independent application activities connect with compelling writing-centered projects built around 21st-century skills. Projects enable students to make cross-curricular and literacy connection with a technology focus.
These 48-page guides are built on the Understanding by Design® framework and feature writing-centered projects that develop collaboration and 21st-century skills. The resource section includes reproducible checklists, assessment guides, and helpful information for students.
The Project Experience comes with resources designed to enhance student learning and understanding, including Tech Tutor videos, pre-project lessons, and writing exemplars.
These exemplars show both a writing sample that is below expectations and one that meets expectations provided by the assessment guides and writing checklists, and support teacher/student communications about content, style, and writing conventions needed to successfully complete and evaluate writing assignments.
This printed guide provides an overview of the Digital, Print, and Project Experiences and how they interact, as well as the research base for the program, guidelines for effective implementation, and user instructions to get started with FLEXWorks.
