Meet our team: Brenda Sherry

Powerful Learning Practice has expanded its staff and brought some fascinating new minds (and fresh ideas) to our team. We’d like to introduce our team to you, one by one, and so we’ve come up with seven questions for each of them so you can have a little peek into what they’re thinking and who they are.

Heather Wolpert-Gawron on Her Lively New PLP E-course: Project-Based Writing

Project-Based Writing (PBW) is about more authentic, purposeful ways to teach, learn and use writing. Does the kind of writing we’re teaching exist out in the real world? In other words, does it have a real-world application? If it can be found outside of school, then we as teachers can mine it for application within school. The learners in this eCourse will end up producing a PBW portfolio, based on units they and other participants create, of authentic writing projects with real world connections. They will walk away with a meaningful digital curriculum binder to use “Monday or Someday.”
