Last week in Part 1, we began the How To Develop Student-Centered Design Challenges series learning the reasons why design challenges are an effective way to engage students, where good ideas come from and how develop criteria to evaluate potential ideas.
This week, in Part 2, I’m going to address:
- How does my idea align with the standards I need to teach?
- What will my students actually “do” in this challenge?
- How will my challenge engage and motivate students?
- What does a successful solution look like?
