Key Questions:

  • Teaching the same content, but searching for more student voice and choice?

  • What if you opened your city up to your students?

  • How could they connect your standards with experiences in the real-world?

City As Lab: Course Entry Experience

Start with just a simple 1 day field experience or 1-week course entry experience.

You will be amazed to see the power of one experience at the start of the school year. Especially, when you frame the experience as an opportunity to connect your content to their daily lives. Students are 100% more likely to expand their learning outside of the classroom if you expose them to those connections early.
