Method hired some of the best and brightest project based learning (PBL) professionals in California to create projects and teach students using this exciting and proven Method. Students at Method participate in group and individual projects that reinforce the curriculum and build problem solving skills. Projects also drive home the important points students should remember since they’re immediately applying what they learn.
Students at Method work on a variety of projects that make learning fun and engaging. In this area, we’ll list a number of projects students might work on while at Method. Examples include forming a restaurant, building a bridge, or making a video that could be used to promote the United States. All our projects are aligned with key components of curriculum so that learning is reinforced in a way that feels natural and seamless.
Methodville: This was a group project that explored the differences between urban, suburban, and rural landscapes. Students build 32 SF models of their ideally-built master planned community. Students explored the various challenges that occur with each type of land use. At the culmination of Methodville, students hosted an exhibition for students and the community at both Method Mission Valley and Murrieta centers.
