Curriculum Integration
Learn about and receive a 10th grade, multi-disciplinary, standards-based, Projects-based Learning (PBL) Unit, with assessment rubrics, that incorporates world history, geometry, biology, language arts, world language, and a CTE green construction project. During this one semester PBL unit, students investigate questions like: How can transportation become independent of oil? Why should we design real world transportation alternatives? Can local and global communities switch to alternative, sustainable forms of energy? A "Tableau Vivant" interactive activity will be shared with attendees.
