    Why Project Based Learning?

     
    ...........................................................................................Because the old way is not working.
     
    The jobs for the students in our classrooms do not yet exist.
     
    How are we to prepare them for a future that we can't see?
     
    We must teach them confidence in their ability to learn and adapt.
     
    Here are our PBL objectives:
    • Curriculum is standards based, integrated and measured supported through

    • appropriate technologies.

    • Student growth and achievement are measured in a variety of ways/lenses

    • Inquiry and project-based learning is the preferred delivery model for instruction. 

    • Students use technology to access the curriculum. 

    • Assessments that are experiential have a learning component to them

    • Assessments provide opportunity to demonstrate understanding
