Culminating Project Work: Writing the Itinerary
Students work together to draft their itinerary.
This activity focuses on the following career skills:
 Working effectively with a diversity of individuals and perspectives
 Utilizing time efficiently while managing complex tasks
Tell students to spend this time sketching out the details of their itineraries. They
must also choose one person to type their itinerary on the computer. Walk among
the groups, making sure that they are making good progress and offering
suggestions and support as appropriate

How do we assess our WBL plan?
• Assessment of student learning outcomes
– College and Career Readiness
• Each WBL activity to have activities that occur:
Pre
During
Post
In and/or Out of the Classroom
• Internship assessment - SCAS
• WBL plan is a “living document” to be regularly reviewed
Reminders
EdWeek 2013
• “… they will lose interest quickly without tangible
results or established goals.”
• Gen Y students are crushed by failure, so they would
rather give up than exhaust their efforts.
• Consistency is important; students will not internalize a
concept after a one-time lesson – maintain
your “theme.”
