PBL Teachers Embedded at High Tech High

CBK Teachers Visit High Tech High Through the school district’s partnership with the Avalon Foundation, a dozen  teachers and administrators spent a week at world’s premier project based learning school, High Tech High in San Diego, Calif. The teachers spent the week embedded with a High Tech High teacher, learning and teaching side-by-side as a means to become well versed in the PBL instructional approach. The experience, which also included student-led tours, ideation workshop, overview of project work time and discussions on critique and revisions, will be followed up with a series of professional learning experiences with Cheltenham’s 20 other PBL teachers. With these efforts, the district will be able to offer PBL experiences to all secondary students starting in the 2020-2021 school year.
