Project-based Curricula in the Active Learning Environment
  Location: HC 3048
  Date: Monday, Aug.1
  Time: 7:00 PM -7:10 PM
  Author: Simon Huss, Windward School
  Co-Author(s): Rebecca Carter
  Abstract: Windward's Science and Technology Department has incorporated several unit-long, hands-on projects into the introductory level through AP Physics level curricula. Project-based learning provides more meaningful context for instruction and creates opportunities for teamwork, limited competition, and the activation of multiple learning modalities. Student role selection, differentiated instruction, methodologies for varied assessment, and project inspiration are all discussed. Specific strategies for implementation of a few select projects are discussed in detail.
