Teaching History Through Genealogy: An Authentic Learning Experience

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Participants will be challenged to rethink how they do projects. Authentic learning experiences offer students a high level of ownership, problem solving, engagement, and connectivity.

Using the genealogy project as an example, participants will be able to:
* develop an understanding of the power of authentic learning experiences
* transform one of their traditional projects into an authentic learning experience
* design and share ideas for future authentic learning experiences.

note - I call it authentic learning experience, because I have come to value the experience that the student goes through as much if not more than I value the content they are learning during the project.
