Team SYNERGY at Kuna Middle School recently hosted a murder scene. Read a bit more about it in the facebook post from the Ada County Shreiff’s Office.
Team SYNERGY hosts a Problem-Based Learning (PBL) environment for 7th and 8th grade students. In this environment, students have direct access to their History, Language Arts, Math, and Science instructors at all times as they work to solve the problems laid out before them — and those problems require students to show off the skills they’ve practiced in all four core areas.
Team SYNERGY is scheduled to present at the 2015 IMLA conference, and they are excited to share more about how they designed and implemented their program that integrates PBL, as well as Blended Learning, and Standards-Based Grading.
In the meantime, feel free to check out their SYNERGY*VOICES blog, where they keep a log of successes, failures, problems, questions, and everything else they encounter as they move through their journey in redefining what middle school looks like.
