What is it? Teachers at Metropolitan Arts and Technology High School in San Francisco discuss the different 21st Century 4 C's competencies required to complete the Propositions Project, where students produce video political ads for a California ballot proposition of their choice.
Why do we like it? This is a good overview of a high school social studies & media project from start to finish. Teachers reflect thoughtfully on how PBL builds the 4 C's, and we see & hear student teams discussing issues, planning, & presenting their videos.
How can you use it? You and your colleagues can draw ideas from this video for how to design and manage projects in any subject, to provide opportunities for students to use critical thinking, collaboration, communication and creativity.
