4th Grade Community Based Learning
The Courage Project is a new project that is a collaboration of eight teachers, working across the disciplines of writing, physical education, farm and garden, community based learning, art and Spanish. Students inquire about the topics of sportsmanship, courage, bullying, and environmental stewardship, and focus on one. They then more deeply engage in the project's driving questions: What is the problem? Why is it important? What can others do to help? Students write a public service announcement on their chosen topic and record their ideas in podcast form to be shared as part of a larger collaborative public awareness campaign.
