What’s all this excitement about Project Lead the Way?
The King School Improvement Team will answer that question tonight when it features the project-based program at its annual parent education night.
“The Power of PLTW: Hands-on Learning in Our Science Curriculum” will be held at the school from 6:30 to 8 p.m.
The evening will begin with Ann Arbor Public School’s K-12 PLTW coordinator Tom Pachera, who will address the district’s vision for this work, and how it will continue through high school.
The evening will also include grade-level break-out sessions, where parents will have the opportunity to more fully understand the depth and breadth of their child’s PLTW experience in the Young 5’s through fifth grade years.
