Student-Designed Curriculum

Posted on April 23, 2007 at 12:18pm 4 Comments

I know this can't be an original idea, but what if we actually worked with students as they designed curriculum for what they want to learn?



What would be the key processes to follow to ensure that students learned what is essential yet were able to engage in learning those things of interest to them?

Hey Terry,

Our Brainyflix video contest just ended, and I wanted to thank you for helping us get the word out. We got 800 submissions from across the country!

That said, MIT was really happy with the results and will let us run another contest, so we're going for it! But this time, we're gonna have kids create Brainypics flashcards - which are images and sentences paired up with a one of our SAT/ACT words. The contest ends May 22nd, and there'll be iTunes and a cash prize like last time. To boot, we'll double the payout if the kids can hit a certain goal. More details at brainyflix.com/main/contest_rules.

Do you mind passing my message along to students and your HS colleagues again?

Thanks,
Jack

Hi Terry. I was wondering if you have students or educator friends who would be interested in participating in a nationwide SAT Vocab Video Contest @ MIT university. You can view contest details at BrainyFlix.com Please let me know. Thanks!

hi terry! my name is nicole taylor and i am the new art teacher at haysville middle school. anyhow, i was at new teacher orientation the other day and for some reason remembered your name from somewhere but couldn't remember where. then it occured to me that kevin honeycutt once refered to you in an inservice as being an avid user of classroom 2.0 and artsnacks (or something like that.) so i got on my 2.0 page and here you are.
i just wanted to say hi and introduce myself! hopefully i can get some of my students here at haysville using artsnacks! (it was a great enrichment program for my students i formerly taught at western plains.)
it looks like your are doing a lot of great things here at haysville. i'm sure i will run into you sometime!
-nicole
