Reflection: Student Communication Unit Synthesis: prototype + test + iterate (2 of 4) - Section 3: Making a contract


Another powerful outcome of these prototype contracts is that they allow a student to provide exact instructions to me and to other students.  I often struggle with how best to discuss a students' persistent self-defeating behaviors.  This contract not only allows me to understand a student's self-perception, but prescribes to me the exact corrective intervention that the student wants.

Unit Synthesis: prototype + test + iterate (2 of 4)

Unit 1: "Unit 0": Engineering design thinking
Lesson 9 of 12

Objective: Students will be able to: 1) use evidence to articulate the importance of social-emotional learning skills; 2) create a prototype contract that outlines a solution to a personal social-emotional need; and 3) flash publicize the key ideas of their contracts.

Big Idea: Tenets of social and emotional learning are powerful constraints of engineering design thinking. How might we develop student contracts that maximize self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationships skills, and responsible decision making?

Big Idea: Engineering is often left out when teaching STEM classes. Students have seen how inquiry can be used to help explain phenomena that are backed by evidence. This challenge gives students the opportunity to incorporate their inquiry skills to solve a need.
