Quick Ideas for Using Our Point to Point Programs:
- Use the interactive experience with the expert as an opportunity for real world career exploration with an entire class or a small group of students.
- Use the interactive experience with the expert as a featured learning opportunity for the entire class or a small group of students as part of your study of the field/subject matter the expert works in.
- Use the interactive experience with the expert as a starting point for a unit or project-based activity focused on the subject matter of the expert. How can the expert provide real world information that will help students as they complete the unit? What questions can students ask to help them as they begin work on their project? What criteria can students develop with the expert to provide real world evaluation of their project?
- Use the interactive experience with the expert as the culmination of a unit or project-based activity focused on the subject matter of the expert. Use the student experience in the activity to help them form questions for the expert to take their learning even further. Consider having the expert respond to some of the student projects.
- Consider scheduling an interaction with the expert at both the beginning and end of a unit or project-based activity focused on the subject matter of the expert. How can the expert help set criteria for the project and offer background information to help students as they complete the project and then also provide real world evaluation of what the students created?
