Following the PACT Philosophy, Stevenson PACT teachers plan a curriculum that meets and exceeds district and state requirements, including preparation for state-mandated tests. Teachers work closely with parent volunteers to plan various co-curricular activities and integrate them into the core curriculum and classroom projects.
Project Based Learning at Stevenson
Project Based Learning (PBL) is a way for students to investigate a complex problem or question through integrated curriculum. The outcome of these multi-week projects will be a product that has gone through multiple revisions and is presented to an authentic audience.
Since inception, Stevenson PACT has embraced principles of PBL, and has integrated elements of PBL in teaching practice. A multi-year initiative was launched in 2013 to formalize PBL as a core part of our curriculum and to undertake extensive professional development for our teachers in this teaching practice.
