Harness the Power of Interdisciplinary Literacy Using Hands-On Tech

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Building windmills in English? Public speaking in science? Writing in social studies? Come see how one grade level came together and energized students about learning! Using the novel, The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind by William Kamkwamba as a starting point, teachers at Fisher Middle School brought an energy PBL to life! When all content areas came together, students were not only able to create their own energy prototypes but empathize with others around the globe who don't have the energy resources we do! In this session, participants will be taken from planning to implementation and participate in some low-tech hands-on activities!
