Project Based Learning Approach to Civics Engagement Series

Series Overview: Research in civics education refers to instructional strategies that promote democratic ways of thinking that foster informed and active citizenship. It also establishes that citizenship education should be student-centered with a strong emphasis on classroom discussion and cooperative activities.

One approach that increases student interaction and enables students to engage with relevant issues is Project Based Learning (PBL). In this four-part series, the LAC will introduce participants to the PBL approach to develop relevant civics curricula. We will look at real issues our students face and develop tools for self-advocacy. Throughout the series, we will include lesson ideas that can be used with students at varying levels of proficiency. We will also explore how specific technology tools can be integrated into civics instruction. Finally, coaching sessions will be offered to participants to assist them in building their projects.

Attendance Restrictions: Attendees must commit to attending all four days of the series.

Sessions: February 8th, February 15th, March 8th, and April 26th 

Audience: ESOL, ABE, and Pre-HSE  Instructors

Facilitators: Nell Eckersley and Lizelena Iglesias

Session 3: Mapping out your Civics PBL Using Google HyperDocs

Description: In the third session of the series, we will explore how Hyperdocs can support phases 2-7 of Project Based Learning.  A HyperDoc is a digital document—such as a Google Doc—where allcomponents of a learning cycle have been pulled together into one central hub. Within a single document, students are provided with hyperlinks to all of the resources they need to complete that learning cycle. Participants will develop their own hyperdocs using Google Docs and Google Slides not only to support content learning but also the development and strengthening of digital skills.
