基于项目的学习

The following is an excerpt from English instructor Trevor Rees's  Fall 2019 Parents Weekend Convocation on project-based learning:

“有最伟大的领袖在他们之上,孩子们几乎不知道有这样的领袖存在.  大师老师工作不利己,不留痕迹.  基于项目的学习可能并不像大发平台想象的那么新.  男孩在这方面很出色.  这给了他们所有权. "

 

我正在测试我的AP语言课上的一个项目.  Teams of our boys are designing and co-authoring “Compendiums of Rhetoric”, 每个人开采的原料都不一样.  One team is going to catalog the tools of language vis-à-vis Game of Thrones, 另一个使用职业运动的例子, 我迫不及待地想看看它们是如何发展壮大的.  特瑞昂·兰尼斯特将是一座雄辩的金矿.  I am going to be the principal investor, editor-in-chief, and publisher.  在三月,我将涂抹最好的版本, in April we’re going to band together to polish it and self-publish it, and in May, 大发平台会试着让你买它.  所有利润将捐献给大发平台的微波灾难救援基金.

My hope, 学生们一夜之间成为文学超级明星, 他们几乎不知道我的存在, 并在六月宣布“这一切都是大发平台自己做的。.“他们完全可以自己完成, and learn more than they ever cared to know about anadiplosis in the process.  Projects foster ownership, ownership creates agency, and agency deepens understanding. "

数学和科学:设计和建造过山车 

Math instructor Trudy Pyznski’s 过山车的设计 Project applies quadratic functions to the real-world. Algebra II students explore the time and distance required for an actual roller coaster to fall from its tallest hill. Students use this activity as a guide to design their own rollercoaster. 在优等生班里, they extend the unit and apply their knowledge of polynomials functions as well.

人文学科:古希腊城邦的建构 

这是他们为期三个月的古希腊研究的一部分, the three sections of Ancient History tackle the creation of their own ancient Greek city-states.

Students base their city-states on research and reports they do on real places (Samos, Corinth, and Argos) ca. 430 BCE. 活动的高潮包括“修昔底德日”,,包括每个班级所在城邦的虚拟之旅, 完全建立在Minecraft, 以及一次受到“模拟联合国”启发的理事会会议,” where our three city-states wcome together to address a common threat in our region (modeled after the events of the Peloponnesian War). 

 

 

历史:人类迁徙 

在过去的几年, History Department Chair Chris Russell has sought to finetune Salisbury’s approach to teaching history. He emphasizes asking the critical questions first; where do we want to go and how do we get there? 从每一课所需的技能和目标开始, 他为他的班级开辟了一条通往那里的道路.

This trimester, the entire history department shared the theme of human migration studied over different time periods and parts of the world. 大发平台的孩子们研究了自己家族的移民史, 并将历史上的经历与他们自己的故事联系起来. 在大发平台的冬季项目评估中, 学生们有机会展示和分享移民的故事.

塞巴斯蒂安·波特22年创造了整个 人类迁徙的网站 to support his work, and several of our Knights showcased their studies in other meaningful ways. 查看他们的项目, and read more about our unique approach to teaching history at Salisbury School, see our 2020冬季在线杂志.  

 

 

公开演讲:产品推销 

在汤姆·塞韦罗的公开演讲课上, students invent a product and deliver a pitch for it in which they must utilize multimedia, 有客户感言, and implement a variety of techniques aimed at "speaking to the elephant, not the rider." This references a concept they discuss in class that essentially states how human beings are emotional decision makers, who only later recruit their reasoning to justify their initial gut feelings.

创业研究

The Economics Department benefits from a multi-disciplinary approach to the discipline, as well as a commitment to the depth of experiential learning that comes from applying economic theory. Students, 通常是在上面的形式, may choose to pursue a program oriented around the capital markets by studying economics and personal finance, 或者可以申请参加创业研究项目, a three-course program oriented around the theory and practice of building an organization around a novel concept.   Embedded in this program is a college-level economics course designed to better prepare students for further study of the discipline.  Student experience in the department centers on our belief that boys best learn by doing. The theories of personal finance are cemented through an annual mock portfolio competition and an active investment club on campus overseen by the Economics faculty. The theories of supply and demand find real meaning in the student demand schedules created by the Student Agencies operating on campus (see the Entrepreneurial Studies Overview). 每个学习创业学的学生都在创造, develops, 并向学校行政部门辩护, 真正的商业计划, 向学校申请批准和种子基金. Many go on to put their plans into action as Independent Study projects in their sixth form year.
