Blending Student Choice and Voice
Jerilyn McConchie, Teacher

My 10th Grade ELA course is 99% online based. I give my students absolute choice and voice in what they are doing in the classroom. I do PBL and there are always tons of moving parts in my classroom. Often there are 2-5 assignments going on simultaneously and many days, I ask the students what they want to work on and let them prioritize accordingly what they think needs to get done.
