A Bite of BOB: Lunch and Learn

Duration:   Single or multiple 20 minute talks

TOOL Workshops

This workshop provides a Building Outside the Blocks toolkit to help teachers  tweak or create a BOB project to meet their teaching needs. With a specific subject area or focus in mind, participants will look deeply at specific project ideas and backwards design them  from explicit instruction to student ownership.
