Weekly classes allow students to work on multi-week projects, exploring these questions.  If you like collaborating with colleagues, being creative, using technology, asking questions, and letting projects drive the learning, we have a great opportunity for you. Teaching is for two hours followed by a 30 minute planning meeting.  A project coordinator leads the team and prepares the final outline for each lesson.
