I need some help: Do you have some good ideas for how to integrate EVERY SINGLE CLASS in my school? I teach grades 5-8 in a charter school. Many of my students are very bright, but some struggle with getting basic skills in. They ALL find it difficult to stay engaged in traditional school so they've come to us. This year (our first year), they've done better, but I know we can do better for the kids by blurring the lines between "school" and the "real world." I want to have separate projects, but no separation of classes next year--students would move from room to room, working on creating solutions and solving problems, but they'd not be moving from room to room every 42 minutes (or 90, or whatever).
I know this is ambitious, but if you do this already, even if it's on a smaller scale, I want to pick your brain!
