Each time a GCE course is taught, it’s subjected to the rigor, standards, and feedback of students, teachers, and community partners. Our summer professional development sessions are key to the iterative process that makes our courses innovative and relevant.
The process of improving and creating new integrated, project-based curriculum is extensive. It requires our teachers to collaborate and experience each course as if they were a student; taking each test, doing each action project, and even workshopping the policies and procedures for Field Experiences, where students apply what they’ve learned in class in real-world contexts with our community partners.
