In the Multiple Literacies in Project-Based Learning science courses, students are supported to use science ideas and scientific and engineering practices, including asking questions, creating models, and collaborating with their classmates. This course is designed to enhance students’ curiosity about the natural world and interest in problems they encounter in their lives, and support them in figuring out how to go about resolving those questions.

Middle School

6th Grade Science

In this sixth grade PBL science course, students explore the question: How can we use science and engineering practices to explore energy, climate, body systems, and the growth and reproduction of organisms? Students have opportunities to ask questions, design investigations, and use evidence to understand how to apply core concepts like energy, climate, and body systems and heredity to address personally relevant and environmental challenges.

Middle School

7th Grade Science

In this seventh grade PBL science course, students explore the question: How can we use science and engineering practices to explore chemical reactions, geoscience processes, ecosystems, and Earth’s natural resources? Students have opportunities to ask questions, design investigations, and use evidence to understand how to apply core concepts essential to each subject.

Middle School

8th Grade Science

In this eighth grade PBL science course, students explore the question: How can we use science and engineering practices to explore motion, waves, evolution and natural selection? Students have opportunities to ask questions, design investigations, and use evidence to understand how to apply core concepts essential to each subject.

High School

9th Grade English Language Arts

In this project-based learning approach to 9th grade English Language Arts course, students ask the question: How is the world composed for us, and how do we compose the world? Students explore themes of perspective, audience, and critical thinking through projects that engage them in deep learning, reflection, empathy, and fun.

High School

AP Environmental Science

This is an active and engaging project-based approach to the standard AP Environmental Science course. Students engage in investigations and simulations that require them to think like scientists, policy-makers, farmers, and other professionals in real-world settings, through projects with real-world goals.

High School

AP Physics

In this project-based learning approach to AP Physics topics, students work both collaboratively and alone to develop knowledge and skills through extended inquiry structured around complex, authentic challenges. Wherever possible, these projects include learning activities that are student-directed and involve student decision-making, having students generate and share their thoughts about a problem.

High School

AP U.S. Government & Politics

This is a project-based approach to the AP U.S. Government and Politics course, where students explore the question: What is the proper role of government in a democracy? Students take on roles as key players in the government in projects that simulate the political process. In their project work, students use a core set of ideas, concepts, and skills to analyze facts to gain a deeper analytical perspective on government and politics in the United States.
