Project Genesis is extreme project based learning in action! Come and learn how the Media Arts Collaborative Charter School (MACCS) utilizes every class in a grade level to engage in year long, cross-curricular, project-based learning with real world connections. In Project Genesis, both middle and high school students create a world and every civilization in it from the ground up, using principles taught in English, history, science, math, economics, art, music, media, and technology classes. Workshop participants will learn how to plan, design and execute Project Genesis at your own school, focusing on collaboration techniques, integrating external professionals in multiple fields, and end-of-year demonstrations of learning. Participants will leave with copies of all the digital materials needed to get started. Please bring a copy of your subject-area curriculum map, and your school's master schedule if possible!
