• Griffith's PBL Professional Development July 21-23
    Aaron Eisberg of New Technology High visited Griffith Elementary to assist with the one of the new learning models that will be provided to students. 
    Across the 3 days, teachers designed a project that focused on:
    • Designing for Academic Impact
    • Teaching and Learning strategies 
    • Integrating the 6 A's of project design (Academic Rigor, Authenticity, Assessment, Adult Connections, Applied Learning & Active Exploration)
     
    This PD is a part of the ITEF grant received thanks to fourth grade chair, Mrs. Drew, and librarian, Mr. Holmes. 
     
    The goal is to teach teachers how to use resources and expertise that they have to design academically rigorous projects.
