Who We Are

The BIG Lesson is an immersive study trip for elementary children that spans five consecutive days at a community site. Students, teachers, and parents work with experts, engage in observation and conduct student-driven research. Teachers participate in professional development sessions in which they correlate the core curriculum with real world learning. This interdisciplinary, problem-based approach to teaching and learning provides an innovative tool to connect with the community for learning in the real world.
