About “The Project Shop” by the Mobile Montessorian

Project Shop projects are designed with middle school students in mind. They offer integrated, exciting topics for students to learn. The Student Guides provide independence so that students can be in charge of their own learning while you are freed to manage your classroom, observe your student’s progress and interaction, provide intervention and even offer more challenges.

The Teacher Guides help you know how long a project should last, what might be necessary to prepare and gives you lesson suggestion on each topic. Everything is designed with four tenets in mind:

· Independence—greater self-efficacy through independently-driven tasks

· Meaningful Work—greater engagement through adult-like work

· Hands-on Experiences—greater understanding through integration of the hand and mind

· Wellbeing—reflection and care opportunities for the self, others, and the environment
