Exciting Flyer For Our Big UGRR Event on Tuesday

poster.jpeg.versionWe are excited to publish our final copy of the flyer. Please come to the program!

The process for this flyer was meanginful and fun. Though it was a little past our internal deadline, we learned a great deal from the process. For those new to the concept of Project Based Learning and wonder if there is enough “real curriculum” for students to work on and apply critical thinking skills, know that there were many conversations and drafts of this and other texts that we will use on Tuesday night. In fact, PBL publications and authentic writing projects create great envirnoments for students to work on writing and basic design skills.

We now look forward to enjoying the great mantra of PBL learning that makes presentations meaningful assessments for learning: share what you learn and show how you did it.


About Bill Sullivan

I am an English teacher working with great students at Suffield Academy. I also teach seniors in various project-based learning environments. Some of the #PBL topics included global issues, such as Pandemics, Climate Change, and Water; more recently I have asked students to research and identify topics important to our school community and their generation. We curate these topics with a #StudentCenteredPBL. For the past eleven years, I also created a driving question for a class to research a local history mystery and present their findings in a community program partnering with our local historical society. These topics encompass researching the lives of enslaved individuals who were contributors to the foundation of our community.
