Back to Planning with the End in Mind 

A teacher at Ascension of Our Lord School in Calgary discusses some of the planning that goes into designing an effective project.

Key Points

  • When using projects and tasks, it is essential to focus on the outcomes the project is going to assess, rather than on peripheral factors.
  • Once the learning destination is clear, appropriate choices for student products become apparent.
  • When opportunities for ongoing feedback are built into the project plan, students have the opportunity to do their best work.

Discussion Question
