In this session, participants will hear about one school’s innovative initiative to provide alternative paths to student success with a student-designed personalized learning opportunity, which allowed students to design their own individualized learning pathways. Presenters will share how they believe this high-quality learning opportunity deepens its commitment to equity for all learners.

Presenters will outline their framework for planning and implementing a dynamic student-centered, student-motivated, student-driven project-based course. They will share their implementation strategies and explain how the course found its rhythm. Students will present their “passion projects” and comment on how their autonomy contributed to rich learning, original craftsmanship, and meaningful assessments. They will explain how their work habits connected to their academic performance.

Participants will learn to plan and grow a vibrant and personalized project-based learning course completely driven by student choices.
