LEARNING WITH US
Project Based Learning
Honey Creek Community School’s curriculum emphasizes the integration of thought and experience – thinking and doing. Learning is centered on themes and projects that have meaning and purpose in the students’ lives. Adults – teachers, parents and other community members – with various kinds of expertise, share in the teaching of the children. Teachers guide students as they learn through hands-on activities, both individually and in groups.
Honey Creek students will be motivated to ask questions, to exhibit curiosity, to think critically and to seek new opportunities to learn. Students will be able integrate and synthesize information from a variety of sources in a variety of contexts. At Honey Creek, students learn to work effectively in teams, to appreciate differences and diversity, and to communicate through clearly written and spoken words. Ultimately, Honey Creek students will be ready to contribute productively by being technologically literate, employing life management skills and sensitively working in their career, family, friendships and community.
