Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

OBJECTIVE: Participants will be able to replicate cross curricular Boom card activities or adapt cross curricular projects for grades PreK to age 22.
EDUCATIONAL CHALLENGE: Educators are adopting Boom cards as an instructional tool within their classrooms but lack the understanding of application to cross-curricular topics as well as differentiation for a wide variety of student populations.
INSTRUCTIONAL ACTIVITIES/STRATEGIES: Participants will have the opportunity to replicate and create content specific, differentiated Boom cards for their classroom learners.
EVIDENCE of SUCCESS: Educators will be generating individualized, content specific, standards based Boom cards rather than purchasing pre-made, generalized, commercially available materials.
