Product Description
What do you get when you cross NaNoWriMo, 20% Time, and Google’s Genius Hour? The 30-Day Challenge! Revive student interest, differentiate to all learners, and help students “learn by doing” with an experience-based project that will create many lasting memories!

Like the goals themselves, the entire project is highly customizable for your classroom for many grade levels, single/co-teacher classrooms, ability groups, and domains within ELA.

Students brainstorm and set goals (including their daily action steps), use a calendar and a journal to track daily accomplishments, and at the end can complete a survey and/or writing extension to tell you all about their experience. CCSS Writing standards are on the project rubric to assess both their process and final product(s).

In our case, the result was a class of motivated students, group and individual bonding, measured learning, and differentiation with choice interest! One reluctant student even said he “couldn’t wait to hustle to class” to work on his project.

(Psst - check out my Blog Post about this project to learn more!)
