Learning for the Future
Students had been introduced to the big question during a PBL launch. This driving question gives the students a challenge and a sense of purpose. Keynote speakers David Valenciano and Daniela Rodriguez shared their background stories and how getting a solid education can be significantly beneficial for bilingual students. Both speakers are graduates of Missouri Sate University and current staff at Monett R-1. They urged the students to learn more about what college can do for themselves and their families.
As part of a PBL experience, students acquire a deeper knowledge through active exploration of real-world connections. The students are immersed in the discovery of all things “collegiate.” They are researching the steps to enter college, the costs of college, and the long-term rewards of earning an advanced degree. One facet of the project is for the student to actualize that college is a one of the most valuable investments he/she can make for his/her future – both financially and personally.
Furthermore, PBL is self-directed learning. These 1st and 2nd graders have voice and choice in making the majority of decisions about their project. The students are establishing leadership roles, finding resources, and applying the information necessary to earn money at the upcoming event. Current tasks include securing financial backing for fundraising and creating hand-made products to sell. They are also reaching out to English Language Learners at other campuses to support the project in the areas of public relations, event entertainment, and scholarship writing and selection.
We look forward to the culmination of the students’ PBL project at the Parent Activity Night on Monday, April 10, 2017, and at the presentation of a college scholarship to a graduating ELL student!
