Learn how school museum projects can engage students in learning and support classroom practices such as standards-based curriculum planning, student-involved classroom assessment, differentiated instruction, service learning, best instructional practices, professional learning community and job-embedded professional development. In these interactive workshops participants learn how to use school museum projects to organize curriculum around "big ideas" and focusing questions; engage students in research, writing, and design; and develop students’ critical thinking, problem solving, communication and teamwork skills. Participants will review examples of school museums, simulate some of the steps in the planning and instructional processes, and begin to develop a plan for their own project.
