It’s essential to understand how to take students through the process, as it can lead to incredibly meaningful work. In this PRO Pack, Lena Rodriguez shows how you can serve as a guide for students. Understand how to help students research, plan, reflect and become self-aware enough to create in-depth bodies of work.
