Green Project Based Learning:
Part of KIPP Vision’s mission is to help students become environmentally responsible students and leaders. In order to accomplish this mission, KVA will dedicate part of its Saturday school to a green curriculum. The green curriculum will be problem based whereas students will identify a problem in their local environment or school and will plan a means to solve it. By using a problem-based philosophy, students will be responsible for “driving” their own learning by their own questions. Once students identify an environmental challenge, students will research and devise a plan of action to begin to determine ways to solve the environmental problems that they have identified. Students will have one problem per quarter.
