Passion (Part 4) – A Plan
Passion – A Plan will guide you through the process of designing a process for Passion Projects in your classroom. Not every plan will look the same, nor should it. Let’s see what you and your learners can create.
Design the steps and processes that you will use in your classroom to have students develop their own Passion Project. Think through the following steps and modify as necessary.
1. Students share their passions, likes, dislikes, and interests.
2. Consider the links between curriculum and passions.
3. Research options and create a proposal.
4. Research approved proposal.
5. Students work on developing a skill, item, presentation, etc.
6. Students present their findings and reflect on their process.

- Using the process above, submit a design/plan that includes:
- The way in which you will tell your students about what a Passion Project is and how it will be completed.
- The way you will have students brainstorm and share their passions, likes, dislikes, and interests.
- The manner in which your students will work on these projects (i.e. will it be during free time, a scheduled time each week, etc.). How long will you give students to work on their project (a quarter, a semester, etc.)?
- A rubric for any steps along the way but especially the presentation and student reflection (What will students need to include? How will they know that they’ve reached the end of their project? Who will the students be presenting to such as their class, parents, teachers, professionals, etc.?)
