On Tuesday, November 5, 2019, a team of Berkshire teachers presented at the Learning Innovations Conference at Kent State University. Our teachers shared a variety of Project-Based Lessons, examples of student engagement and work, and discussed their lessons learned and how they plan to improve on their PBL instruction for future lessons. The Berkshire teachers were the highlight of the conference and several other local area school districts have since requested that they come deliver the same presentation to their teachers.
Project Based Lessons provide students in the Berkshire Schools with the opportunity to learn through hands-on and real world experiences. The intent with Project Based Learning is to promote awareness, problem solving skills through critical thinking both individually and collaboratively. Their presentation with Project Based Learning also underscores the District’s Graduate Profile, which includes the Five C’s: Communication, Creativity, Critical Thinking, Collaboration and Citizenship. A special “Badger Shout” goes out to our Berkshire teachers, for delivering such an impassioned presentation about their Project Based Learning experiences.
