Students will regularly consult with local experts in PBP content areas through fieldwork, classroom visits and internships.
Biannual demonstrations of learning will be organized whereby students will present what they learned to a panel that includes peers, community members and parents. -Feedback will be given to students both orally and in writing using PBP rubrics. -Students will be required to reconcile this feedback with their own self-assessment. This process of questioning, researching, problem solving, collaborating, presenting, and reflecting is one way in which TRCS will help studentsacquire21st Century skills.
Additionally, as students gain competence in Spanish, they will be required to present portions of their demonstrations in Spanish.
Project Based Learning (PBL) helps students retain content longer with a deeper understanding of what they learned ( Penuel, W. R., & Means, B, 2000) is more effective than traditional methods for teaching math, economics, language, science, and other disciplines (Mergendoller, J. R., Maxwell, N. L., & Bellisimo, Y.,2006)
Students perform as well or better than traditionally taught students in standardized test (Parker , 2011)18, students demonstrate better problem solving skills because they are able to apply what they learn to real-life situations (Finkelstein, et al., 2010)
