In our ECS301 class, we dived into a project based learning unit being done at Mother Teresa Middle School in Regina. We based our lesson on what the two intern teachers did at Mother Teresa. The students noticed that there was an abundance of crab apples going to waste and they wanted to do something about it. Students decided to make crab apple jelly and sell it with profits going to a good cause.
Our job was to fill in the blanks and find out what outcomes in which subjects, assessment, essential questions, and jobs for all students in the classroom. I enjoyed planning out this activity based on the fact that it is truly very engaging for all students, and it is social justice related.
