Makerspaces for the ELA Classroom
Makerspaces are not the domain of Science and Math classes alone. ELA classes can also benefit from using maker activities in their classrooms to engage students and help them use their skills and creativity to create new and interesting ways to demonstrate understanding. Join Nicholas Provenzano as he shares the different ways that he has worked Makerspaces and Making into his ELA classroom. He will explain how using Project Based Learning as an assessment tool will lead to higher student engagement and provide students with an opportunity to demonstrate their understanding of the content covered in class. Focusing on the 8 aspects of The Maker Mentality; dreamer, fearless, passionate, inclusive, hacker, storyteller, artist, and trueness, Nick will explore how the Maker Mentality can be implemented in any ELA class to support student making.
