Big Idea Writeup

Reciprocal Teaching and Learning

Reciprocal teaching broadly refers to classroom methods in which the instructor models a structured dialogue exploring a text or a concept, and then guides students to lead similar dialogues.

Reciprocal Teaching & Learning

Inadvertently, students identify particular people – parents, coaches, teachers, etc. – as key reason for them being here.  In-turn students are challenged to be that influential person for a disenfranchised high school student.  The learning they receive in the classroom is then reciprocated to the high-school student with them acting as the teacher.

Course

Collaborative Design

Collaborative Design is a course focused on inquiry-based learning in a project-based environment. Student teams will learn to work together creatively, in a hands-on environment, with emerging technologies to design innovative products or services. The course aims to teach design thinking as an approach that can be used to consider issues and resolve problems more broadly, and promote self-directed learning that can be applied inside and outside the classroom.
