Come explore the concept of 20% Time in Social Studies with a focus on Middle School. See how you can help personalize the classroom curriculum and how 20% Time is implemented. The focus of this project is the ownership students take in meeting the 21st Century Learning Expectations of Self-Management, Communication, Decision Making & Problem Solving, and Technology & Information Use. As well as the Common Core Standards in History, CC RH.6-8.1,2,5,7,8: Students will self-reflect and produce a Process Paper emphasizing/defining their performance. We discuss how the core subject teacher and the librarian collaborated to create this unique learning experience. We structured our semester calendar to allow students 1 day a week to deeply explore a topic of their choice. We will have examples of projects students did and plan to invite a few students to come with us and talk about their experiences with 20% time.
