Project Based Learning

以下是英语老师特雷弗·里斯(Trevor Rees)在2019秋季家长周末大会上关于项目式学习的节选:

“With the greatest leader above them, the boys barely know one exists.  The master teacher works without self-interest and leaves no trace.  Project-based learning might not be as new as we think.  Boys are excellent at it.  It gives them ownership. "


I’m beta-testing a project in my AP Language class.  大发平台的小伙子们正在设计和合作编写《大发平台APP》, each mining a different lode of source material.  一个团队将在-à-vis《大发平台APP》中对语言工具进行分类, another using professional sports, I can’t wait to see how they develop and flourish.  Tryion Lannister is going to be a gold mine of persuasive language.  我将成为主要投资人、总编和出版人.  In March I will anoint the best edition, 在4月份,大发平台将联合起来完善它并自行发行, 和5月, we’re going to try to get you to buy it.  All profits will go to our microwave disaster relief fund.

我的希望, as the students are vaulted into overnight literary superstardom, is that they barely know I exist, and exclaim by June “we did it all by ourselves.”  They can do it all by themselves, 并了解到更多关于过程中复生的知识.  项目促进所有权,所有权创造代理,代理加深理解. "

humanities: Constructing ancient Greek city-states 

As a part of their trimester-long study of ancient Greece, 《大发平台APP》的三部分讲述了古希腊城邦的建立.

学生们将他们的城邦建立在他们对真实地方所做的研究和报告上(Samos), 哥林多, ca和阿哥斯). 公元前430年. The culmination includes “Thucydides Day,” including a virtual tour through each class’s city-state, built entirely in Minecraft, and a council meeting inspired by “Model UN,“大发平台的三个城邦聚集在一起,共同应对大发平台地区的共同威胁(仿照伯罗奔尼撒战争)。. 




Over the past several years, 历史系主席克里斯·拉塞尔一直在努力调整大发平台APP的历史教学方法. He emphasizes asking the critical questions first; w在这里 do we want to go and how do we get t在这里? Beginning with the desired skills and goals of each particular lesson, he forges a path for his classes to get t在这里.

This trimester, 整个历史系都在研究不同时期和世界各地的人类迁移. Our boys researched their own family-history of migration, and connected experiences within history to their own stories. During our winter project-based evaluation, students had the opportunity to present and share tales of migration.

Sebastian Port '22 created an entire Human Migration website 为了支持他的工作,大发平台的几个骑士以其他有意义的方式展示了他们的研究. To view their projects, 阅读更多大发平台在索大发平台APP教授历史的独特方法, 看到大发平台的 Winter 2020 Online Magazine.  



public speaking: product pitch 

In Tom Severo’s Public Speaking class, 学生发明一种产品,并为其进行宣传,其中他们必须利用多媒体, have customer testimonials, 并实施各种旨在“与大象说话”的技术, 不是骑士.这引用了他们在课堂上讨论的一个概念,这个概念基本上说明了人类是如何情绪化的决策者, 谁后来才用自己的推理来证明自己最初的直觉.

entrepreneurial studies

经济系受益于对该学科的多学科方法, 以及对应用经济理论的经验学习的深度的承诺. 学生, typically in the upper forms, 是否可以选择学习经济学和个人理财以资本市场为导向的课程, or may apply to participate in the Entrepreneurial Studies Program, 围绕围绕一个新概念建立一个组织的理论和实践为导向的三门课程.   本课程是一门大学水平的经济学课程,旨在为学生进一步学习该学科做好准备.  系里的学生经验集中在大发平台的信念上:男孩最好通过实践来学习. 通过一年一度的模拟投资组合竞赛和由经济学教授监督的活跃的校园投资俱乐部,个人理财理论得到了巩固. 供需理论在由在校学生代理机构创建的学生需求时间表中找到了真正的意义(参见创业研究概述). Every student in Entrepreneurial Studies creates, 发展, and defends to the school administration, a real business plan, seeking approval and seed funding from the School. 许多人会在六年级时,将他们的计划付诸实施,成为独立研究项目.
