Union provides showcase tour today of its Project Lead The Way curriculum

Originally posted April 20, 2017

Union Public Schools took area area educators who wanted to learn more about Union's Project Lead The Way curriculum on a tour of the district.

The tour started at 8:30 a.m. at Darnaby Elementary School and took vistors to the Union 8th Grade Center, Union 6th/7th Grade Center, and the High School. Stops at the secondary schools focused on Union's engineering and biomed course offerings.

Project Lead The Way or PLTW offers a different approach to learning and teaching. Through activity-, project-, and problem-based curriculum, PLTW gives students in kindergarten through high school a chance to apply what they know, identify problems, find unique solutions, and lead their own learning. For teachers, our engaging, rigorous professional development model provides tools to empower students and transform the classroom into a collaboration space where content comes to life.

PLTW curricular programs include PLTW Launch, PLTW Gateway, PLTW Engineering, PLTW Biomedical Science, and PLTW Computer Science. Learn more.
