How good are you at curating?
Cathy Evans, Dorcas Hand, Robyn Martin, and David Wee wrote this highly informative article for Independent Schools the journal of the National Association of Independent Schools, describing curating as Trailblazing. It’s worth paying attention to their distinction between curating and collecting. Save their ” Curation Assessment Criteria” for your own use. It’s succinct and not only will it help focus your curations, it also is available and suggested for you to share with students when they do their own curation project.
The value of having students do these projects is explained in the section on “Curation, Learning, and Citizenship.” I think you will find this to be an excellent resource. Check out the article at http://www.nais.org/Magazines-Newsletters/ISMagazine/Pages/The-Trailblazers.aspx
