The Breakaway workshop series is a 12 hour commitment spread over 2 months in which teachers engage in several cycles of design to develop fluency with the process. Next, they leverage new skills and create relevant student-centered learning experiences in their classrooms. By providing a solid framework for students to lead their own learning, teachers are able to nurture hard-to-teach skills like collaboration, creative confidence, critical thinking, and communication.
