How Project-Based Writing Teaches Students Time Management

E08980_PRATHER_BOOKCOVER_MG5D6885.jpg

When we help students learn to care about what they’re writing and help them manage their time to write, students are better equipped for future success. In Project-Based Writing, author Liz Prather re-structures the way we teach writing in the classroom in order to redefine the idea that students should be “college and career ready” when they leave high school. 

Here, Prather discusses how engaging in a Project-Based Writing approach in the classroom allows students to learn the importance of time management. Students will know the task to complete and when it's due, but it's up to them to fill in the work in between. For Prather, this valuable skill is infrequently taught until students reach college. Prather knows that time management can be a real challenge for students, but what they gain in understanding is so important.
