As part of the Summer School Program at Fallsburg Central School District, 200 junior high and elementary school students are involved in project-based learning. The five day a week for six weeks program provides a special opportunity for the instructor and the students. Summer School Program Director Ms. Tammy Slick explains that project-based learning is student driven. Students gain a deeper understanding of material by investigating questions, proposing hypotheses and possible explanations. Students work collaboratively to discuss and challenge each other’s ideas, which lead to further inquiry. Students engage in problem solving and critical thinking skills with each other and are fully engaged to find meaningful solutions to their questions.
