Project Based Learning 

Project Design

Projects are designed using a Project Based Learning (PBL)  approach that relies heavily on effective student collaboration and teacher coaching. All projects begin with an authentic challenge which students solve as they investigate the answers to a driving question the project attempts to answer.

Sample Authentic Challenge (PSA)

Create an advertising campaign focusing on a social issue of national scope that impacts the health and wellbeing of people in the state of Michigan.

Sample Driving Question (PSA)
