We identify strategic collaborations with university-based researchers, educational research firms, and like-minded non-profits to establish strong partnerships with districts, schools, and teachers.
Learning Through Performance
In an effort to accelerate and deepen student learning of the Next Generation Science Standards and the Common Core State Standards in mathematics, the Understanding Language - Stanford Center for Assessment, Learning, and Equity (UL-SCALE) developed sixth-grade project-based curricula with performance-based assessments. This study was led by Drs. Linda Darling Hammond, Kenji Hakuta and Raymond Pecheone.
Knowledge in Action
The Knowledge in Action project is an Advanced Placement focused high school program developed by the University of Washington. It includes courses for AP U.S. Government and Politics, AP Environmental Science, and AP Physics. Research suggests that a project-based learning approach can be applied to rigorous high school courses to promote depth of learning while still covering essential content.
