PBL Prep: A one day workshop for individuals, grade-level, or whole school team.

Portrait of a Graduate: This one day workshop aims to help school and district teams identify what deeper learning outcomes look like and why they are so critical for college and career success. Connections are made between the impetus for school innovation and what success looks like in the graduates of schools. Some teams come with an already articulated “Why” and/or Portrait of a Graduate and others use this workshop to build the first iteration of one. In both cases, teams develop ways to articulate the purpose and strategy behind school innovation efforts and specific next steps to get there.
