Putting theory into practice
MicroSociety puts learning theory into practice. It provides the social and emotional connection and the higher order purpose for students to want to learn in the first place. By incorporating real-world experiences into basic curriculum every day, students apply what they learn in the classroom to real life. Instruction transcends the "stand and deliver" daily routine in favor of facilitating and managing instruction. Teachers say MicroSociety is project-based learning on steroids and school-wide they are dedicated to pursuing equal doses of deep learning and the “soft skills” so often pushed aside in pursuit of test prep. The results are convincing: a new and sustained motivation to learn.
