PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Perfect for independent study projects! Unlock your students' passions!

I have been trying to wrap my mind around how to implement passion projects in my classroom all year long. I LOVE the idea behind allowing my students to research topics that interest them, but I also wanted to create some guidelines and parameters to help them along while still allowing student choice and creativity. As you will see, I am approaching passion projects through the incorporation of choice boards. The boards can be copied back to back to give students eleven suggestions, but the twelfth option allows them to create a “pupil proposal”, thus allowing students to negotiate another option with the teacher.

Essentially, the project was created to allow students to independently research an area of interest, create a way to share their learning with the class, and foster life-long authentic learning. I LOVE passion projects… and I LOVE the idea of using it as an independent study project for individual students as much as I love it for a whole group. The possibilities are truly endless. Happy Teaching!
