According to local legend and lore, a few houses on Ratley Road in West Suffield were stations on the Underground Railroad. Our PBL task will be to investigate this and try to document the trail in our town. We will view this video to help us understand the classroom dynamic of a PBL venture. In fact, we should probably abandon the word “classroom” because we will be radically altering your past experiences of progressing through a high school curriculum in a classroom. Our collaborative journey requires you to be an optimal team member in this joint venture. We will be hosting a community event in the spring where we share what we learn about this investigation. I’m excited!

Also for homework, read the prologue to our new book. I’m excited for us all to hone our presentation skills. These are great life skills! http://www.amazon.com/The-Presentation-Secrets-Steve-Jobs/dp/0071636080
