Project Based Learning
Our students are currently involved in two Project Based Learning Projects activities. All classes and all students participate in these projects from concept through completion.
Going Green Project Based Learning
Students have been planning a variety of ways to make the school environment greener. The first phase of the project involved determining ways to "go green" and evaluating the feasibility of each proposed method. Many excellent suggestions sprang forth. Suggestions were evalutated and an implementation schedule was created. In the first phase of implementation a recycling program was put in place. In the second phase of implementation we plan to add trees, a vegetable garden, and a variety of plants to our building as depicted in the projected appearance images below.
Speaking, technology, and presentation skills are essential in today's workplace. Our students are practicing the art of persuasion by writing, designing, editing, and producing a multimedia video to promote our school. Students are learning to plan a project, interview, speak publicly, shoot and edit video, create animations, and work as a team in the process of producing this video.
