While working on a PBL project, “making” often comes into play. The Maker Movement embraces the ability to create useful things from scratch – inventions. This movement addresses the academic mindsets that influence learning behaviors:
•The Growth Mindset – building skills as they create
•The Self Efficacy Mindset – small projects build confidence
•The Sense of Belonging Mindset – this is developed through collaboration
•The Relevance Mindset – the student’s ability to relate educational concepts to real world projects and problems is essential to student engagement and learning. Without the why students are less likely to embrace learning.
Our school is located in a neighborhood. We ask for everyone's support in response to the requests of our neighbors and of RP Public Safety to be extremely careful to not block driveways, double-park and encroach on the red zones during drop-off and pick-up each day. The people who live in the homes on our nearby streets need to be able to get in and out of their driveways with their access unimpeded, especially in case of an emergency. Thank you, in advance, for your help in addressing this concern.
All students are entitled to a successful education.
Our focus is learning.
We are a team!
