AT CAPACITY/Making As Reflection: Using Making and Agency by Design Ideas to Reflect on Our Practice

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

As teachers, we find ourselves in the process of making and mending our lessons, materials, and curriculum every day. We tweak slides between classes to clarify information, create a new bulletin board or anchor chart to launch new units with clarity, integrate new routines to shepherd students to higher-level cognitive work, and so much more to ensure deep and meaningful learning occurs in our classes. As Brigid began to redesign her units over the course of the year to include practices she learned through work with Making Across the Curriculum, she found maker-centered practices highly pertinent to her own pedagogical approach. Participants will use Thinking Routines to reflect on their school year and participate in making to consider how they can bring maker-centered practices into their own planning and learning design. Capacity: 10
