In this session participants will explore the concept of 20% time in various settings with a focus on foreign languages. See how you can help personalize the classroom curriculum and how 20% time can easily be implemented in a classroom. Students spend 20% of the semester, typically one day a week, working on a project they selected and are interested in. Projects relate to the subject content and are aligned with standards. Careful scaffolding and timelines are followed to ensure successful projects. Students present their projects in a museum-style showcase at the end of the semester, giving other students the opportunity to learn about topics that would not otherwise be covered in class. The wealth of products and projects ensures that even students who are generally not interested in the subject will find a topic they are interested in. The teacher and the school librarian work closely with each other throughout the semester and co-teach several pieces of the 20% project, as well as co-evaluate the results.
