I created this session after reading a book on focus. Within the book it detailed how companies such as google gave some of their employees 20% of their time back to work on their own projects. All they have to do is show their progress and reasoning for researching this new product or system. It has been shown to increase motivation and productivity. the sense of ownership helps to promote over aspects of their role.
young people will work on this project independently with the teacher checking back every now and then to promote reflection through learning conversations. This approach helps the teacher to challenge advanced young people while also allowing time for the scaffolding.
Please let me know what you think as the feedback will improve my own teaching and the resource.
