Project Based Learning Focus @ NSE
All faculty and staff members are invited to attend a three day summer professional development this summer to start the process. We will work with BIE trainers throughout the year to finalize our projects and refine our skills in planning these units.
"Project Based Learning's time has come. The experience of thousands of teachers across all grade levels and subject areas, backed by research, confirms that PBL is an effective and enjoyable way to learn -- and develop deeper learning competencies required for success in college, career and civic life. Why are so many educators across the United States and around the world interested in this teaching method? The answer is a combination of timeless reasons and recent developments." - BIE.org
These "recent developments" for NSE and RSD2 are the adoption of the new SC ELA and math standards. The SC standards are written to prepare our students for a career and the real world. As a result, we need to be teaching through real world projects. SC, RSD2, and NSE have adopted the following as the profile of a high school graduate.
