Have your students ever asked you "Why do I need to know this?" Do you struggle to make connections between your content and your students' lives? Using problem-based learning combined with carefully aligned and scaffolded assessments, you can both increase the cognitive skill level of assignments and provide real-life examples for your content. This workshop will help you develop a contextual problem for your class and multiple aligned and scaffolded contextual assessments.
