Projects for real (7 of 15): classroom considerations

pencil-opposite

Another thing I’ve read recently is this old ELTChat summary. Even though the focus is mostly on the product, it was interesting to see so many views from different participants coming together and sometimes contradicting each other. As a note to self, here are a few tension points to explore:

  1. Should classroom projects always be collaborative, or they can also be individual?
  2. Should projects be only done during class time, or the classroom can become ‘porous’?
  3. How practical is it to have an ongoing project for several years and/or groups?
  4. Should the teacher be assigning roles and setting timelines for the learners, or should it be them?
  5. Do we grade projects, and if yes, how?

I’m now halfway through the series: there’s still time to find answers for each point!
