As educators, we share the belief that students learn best by doing. For this reason, we will be including to large, interactive, and engaging projects that will require the students to work beyond the classroom and explore the world around them. We both also share progressive educational philosophies and believe that students' interests should be incorporated into the classroom. For this reason, we give students the power of choice in their assignments. We hope that students will learn through their own intrinsic motivation and will gain life skills through their research and actions.
