In the past couple of weeks, we began the How To Develop Student-Centered Design Challenges series learning the reasons why design challenges are an effective way to engage students.
We’ve also talked about the importance of aligning design challenges to the standards, what successful solutions look like and how to facilitate the challenge.
This week, in Part 4, I’m going to address:
- What expectations should I establish?
- How do I introduce the design challenge to students?
- What should students be doing during design challenge time?
- What should the teacher be doing during design challenge time?
