PROBLEM STATEMENT

Lack of teacher buy-in for Personal Project, which feels like an add-on rather than a chance to apply classroom concepts to real world problems.

HOW MIGHT WE…

Increase student  excitement, buy-in, and engagement from students, parents, and teachers.

SOLUTION

Teach inquiry based, interdisciplinary units in all classes from the beginning of the year to generate buy-in for the type of learning of the Personal Project.
