Summer Learning

by Chris Sturgis

What do you want to learn this summer? Here are a few of the options available on project-based learning, grading for equity, and classroom practices that might be helpful for schools that are launching competency-based models. There is even a Building 21 Summer Design Institute. I’ve bolded several that have been recommended by other schools.
