Project-Based Learning: Discover and test-drive your passionsproject period maharishi school

Each project is either designed by a teacher or proposed by the student at the conception stage and addresses an authentic, engaging and complex question, problem, or challenge. The students work either independently or in small teams and exercise real-life skills in their areas of interest while being fully supported by teachers, community experts, and leaders brought in to match the students’ interests. At the end of each quarter, all the students’ projects are showcased as part of a community-wide event.

Project Period with Miss Sheila Higgins

project period maharishi schoolThe 6th graders at Maharishi School are diving into the world of storytelling with stop motion videos. As they make creative content for their videos they will also be in charge of creating both individual and group stories, while also learning technical skills needed to shoot their concept.

While creating their movie Miss Higgins asks them to plan out a small action sequence that can be a re-telling or  new creation of a familiar story. Her students will take part in drafting the story and building sets, props, as well as characters. On the days that they will be shooting there are several jobs withing the group that need to be done, including a photographer, a mover and a storyteller (or timekeeper). Check out this video to see this project period in process!
