- Review this week’s Learning Resources, considering how Learning Leadership can be applied in your local educational setting (or a local setting in your school) paying careful attention to how a democratic approach (as outlined in Preskill and Brookfield ) can lead to more engaging learning.
- Consider how you might use the democratic approach to engage students in learning through a problem-based project approach.
By Day 3
Post an explanation of how you would apply a democratic approach to a problem-based project that is in line with Brookfield and Preskill’s (2005) explanation in the selections from Discussion as A Way of Teaching. Be sure to include specific support from the text and the other Learning Resources as appropriate.
Note: Use this Discussion to begin thinking about problem-based projects, which might lead to the development of your
Service Learning Strategy Project. This Discussion should be used to suggest possible project directions for your MA and allow you to use your peers as a “sounding board.”
