009 Managing the Process

As you near the completion of developing the project, how students learn and will process their understanding of knowledge, concepts, and skills is an important concern. The structures are built, now it's time to make sure that the inner workings are finely tuned. In this module, you will be looking at needs for mini-lessons and workshops to support student learning, and then begin developing them. Remember, the focus is helping students make sense of the learning so that they retain and build deeper connections.

Complete an Assessment on Design Principle 5: Manage the Process

Continuing to use the KWL strategy, take this assessment for Principle 5. Each assessment page has a self checker for you to do prior to moving on to the next assessment part. Take notes on questions you develop as a result of the assessment results. This will be important for later, when you explore the module.
