Project Based Learning

While ACS students were enjoying a three day weekend, Mrs. Shumny and all the teachers met in school for a professional development day, Friday, October 22. The topic was project based learning (PBL).  Guided by Mrs. Shumny, the teachers completed two modules, Authenticity and Real World Projects.  Using the guidance provided, a plan was made to implement PBL using our math program’s Pick-a-Project component. Much was accomplished within several hours. However we did enjoy a brief visit from Father Ivan, Sister Veronica, and Sister Maria who joined us to start off the day with a prayer.
