• Discovery Peak Charter School Initiative unit development

      I have created two units of study that focus around place-based education, project based learning and emphasize physical activity. These units were created with the purpose of being used at Discovery Peak Charter School. Guided by underlying principles of Understanding by Design (2011) and Place-based Curriculum Design (2015), each unit aligns with the mission of the school and have been balanced to create a holistic quarter long unit of study. The units are built around three main principles; place-based education, project based learning, and physical activity. Each of these principles will be woven into the unit, but may not be present in each lesson section.
