Students’ homework goes international – CNB Steciuk, Hart…

The assignment is part of a project based learning program that has taken place over the last three years at the school. It allows for students to become more independent and self-assess their efforts, while working on projects outside the classroom.

Emma Tucker says project based learning isn’t easier, but it is a lot more fun.

“There is more of a realistic dynamic to it as you are actually planning things that could happen in real life.”

Teacher and Librarian Dayna Hart helped Steciuk with ‘Living the Dream’ and says she helps all teachers at the school to attempt to take on project based learning.

“It is just a different way to help attack the curriculum, the curriculum is really a vehicle for students to get their 21st century skills out of. We really want them to leave school with the ability to communicate, think critically and collaborate,” explains Hart.
