PHS trip to China

Ponaganset Meets Jinan, Again!
Posted on 08/05/2019

This summer for the second consecutive year, Ponaganset High School teachers traveled by invitation to Jinan, China to teach in the Project Based Learning Summer Camp sponsored by Reiun Education Group at Shandong University Furen School.  The intensive PBL summer camp is designed to immerse Chinese students and Chinese educators in an American education model steeped in project based learning.  The students in the camp are not the only learners in this camp. Each day after experiencing the project based learning classroom, PHS teachers met with their cooperating Chinese classroom teachers in small groups to discuss best practices in the classroom that were demonstrated throughout the daily lessons and answer any specific questions ranging from best instructional practices to developing standards based rubrics for grading.  In addition to the classroom teaching and small scale professional development, this year the Ponaganset teachers were also charged with providing large scale professional development for the Chinese educators and administrators who were involved in the camp.  The large professional development sessions solidified what the Chinese educators saw in practice in the classroom and the information they received in the small group sessions, thus providing a multi-tiered PBL learning experience which proved to be extremely successful. The coming together of the Chinese educators and administrators to learn from PHS teachers offered global professional learning for everyone!
