What lessons can we learn from Hip hop? Keep it real - great 3 min clip
Give students choice and voice - publically presenting work gives it value for the students.
Schools around the globe are structured around PBL - but any teacher in any classroom can engage students in an authentic manner.
HPSS - lucky that they are actually involved with building the community!
Hobsonville Habits - dispositional curriculum!
- first one community spirit
- second one 'save the epilobium'
- clean up the mangroves
- school show - 2025
All students have role in each if the contexts!
Does not have to be a weekly timetable - could be a 'discovery week' - see Alfristion model.
Need a 'big project framework'
1 a kick off
2 plan - what do we need etc
4 show time
5 final look
*A rubric needed to show what needs to be achieved - explicitly teach these skills.
*experts - visits / online - need budgets
Students have to tell a story through the process - most use Google Sites -
The strength is in building these skills from Yr9 - compared to ASHS - where the students have to develop the skills when they arrive in Yr 11.
