Entry Event/Document

 

Projects are launched with entry events.These events may be a class discussion, a field trip, an article, a guest lecturer, or an activity.Problem-based projects often employ an entry document designed as a scenario-builder that outlines the problem or issues, defines the studentsí roles and tasks, and sets forth the expectations for successful work the project.A Thought-provoking beginning to a project generates enthusiasm and interest.The goal of an entry event or an entry document is to quickly help students understand the scope of the project, the products that will be required and the assessments that will take place throughout the project.Sample entry events and documents can be found within the Project Based Learning units posted to Teach 21, http://wveis.k12.wv.us/teach21/public/project/Mainmenu.cfm.
