About this Grantee
Mr. Tillett, Mrs. Creed, and Ms. Visinaiz implement an interdisciplinary, problem-based learning project to help students become autonomous learners, view the world as changeable, and increase their connection to the community. Students construct a problem statement inspired by a positive or negative aspect of their community and propose an action for positive change. Acting on their problem statements, students develop and execute a project that will have a tangible effect on the community. Students produce a video documentary about their work and how it has changed both the community and themselves.
