Adapting Project-Based Learning in Rural Georgia

In their second year of shifting to High Tech High-style project-based learning, two Whitfield County Schools share their advice, and lessons they've learned through their efforts.

What this School is Achieving

WHITFIELD COUNTY SCHOOLS

Five middle schools and one high school in the Whitfield County, Georgia school district are in their second year of a transition to project-based learning. Their model is High Tech High, a San Diego charter school renowned for its hands-on student projects that have real-world impact.

Whitfield educators have taken big risks, tried things that failed, and then improved their work based on those mistakes. They're still learning. Yet they've also succeeded in making a huge transition in a short time.
