On March 22nd, students from Tri-County Early College will present their work at the John C. Campbell Folk School in Murphy, NC. The students’ products and performances will represent the culmination of several weeks of learning and doing as part of a schoolwide project-based learning unit driven by this question: How can we inspire young people to value our local heritage by telling our community’s stories in creative and meaningful ways?
Constructive Learning Design is pleased to partner with Tri-County Early College to host a study visit for educators interested in learning more about project-based learning, competency-based learning, and community engagement from teachers and students. In addition to looking at student products and performances, educators will have an opportunity to visit classrooms, network with one another, and speak with teachers and students about their teaching and learning experiences. This is an opportunity to see what high quality project-based learning looks like on a schoolwide and community level.
Meals, coffee, and refreshments will be provided. For those traveling far, there will be an optional breakfast debrief on Friday morning. The price of the event is $150 per participant or $300 for a team of three.
