Projects for real (5 of 15): now in your homes

dining-table

Why write about projects when everyone’s switching to teaching online? Well, real world project management skills may be even more important now, when students are left to their own devices (literally).

And – here is a post by Dr James Wellborn about developing project management skills in teens. It keeps just the right amount of focus on the phases and processes of projects and speaks about project goals, time frame, resourcing and other useful elements of project management. The post is not related to English language teaching, but can be a very useful reference point for any teacher (or parent, as the post  suggests) of teenagers. Even better, there is an example project: a family dinner that the kid (or learner) has to plan using the constraints given by the sponsor (teacher or parent). Really interesting!
