York House School
Grade 5 Teacher
Melissa Kanavos, Erin Riendl, and Kara McDonald are part of a York House School cross-grade and cross-disciplinary team who have collaborated to develop a Grade 4/5 project-based learning initiative that involved an 8 month residency program with High Tech High in San Diego. A pilot project, our shared aim was to explore principles of project-based learning, and to join forces to develop a project, learn from our successes and challenges, and share these with colleagues in order to support project-based learning opportunities from Kindergarten through Grade 12 at our school.
