  • Journeys School 10th Grade Personal Projects: Ski Film

    At Journeys School, all 10th grade students complete a Personal Project as part of the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program. Each student chooses a topic of personal interest, identifies a goal for their learning, researches their topic, creates a product to address their goal, and reflects on the process. During the next few weeks, we’ll be highlighting these Personal Projects on the TSS blog.

  • Place-Based Education Symposium: Communities as Learning Environments

    As the emergence of personalized learning, project-based learning, and deeper learning increases, the time is right to connect learning to communities in authentic and meaningful ways. A place-based education approach can connect learning models, increase the power of our educational system, and provide a foundation for a thriving democracy.
