English & Art Collaboration

Middle school English teacher Ellen Desmond teamed up with art teacher Becca Karp to use project-based learning in her poetry unit. The collaboration was a great success, and the two shared their experience during a fall professional development day focused on Derryfield's “Year of Inquiry” into developing the 21st Century Skills of creativity, critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and media literacy. Their presentation showcased the ways that project-based learning and technology enhance not only student learning, but also engagement.
