"The Tea Ceremony: Assessment of Project Based Learning"

Vermont Art Teachers Association 2017 Conference

September 29, 2017, 9:30 a.m.
Essex Junction, VT


A project-based STEAM classroom can be challenging; such settings often feature a broad range of experience and interest levels. During the session, you will learn about frameworks for student assessment in a project-based curriculum. Several rubrics will be presented and content will be geared toward 9-12 (but may apply to other grade bands). In addition, participants will take part in a hands-on activity in which they design electronic elements for an interactive environment. All abilities welcome -- no experience necessary. The session will culminate by bringing participants' work together to enhance a familiar social ritual. (Tea will be served.) All electronic crafts can be taken home.
