PBL: Learn More

Visit our School

Are you working in the field of education and curious to learn more about MNCS? On Thursday, February 16, 2017, you are welcome to visit MNCS from 9:00 – 10:30 AM to tour the high school building and learn about how a project-based, teacher-led school works. This event is free of charge, and you can be in touch with Paul Jaeger at pjaeger@newcountryschool.com if interested in passing through.

Books

Transitioning from a teacher-directed model of learning to a student directed, project based model can be difficult. Below are some books about PBL and MNCS that many staff and parents have found helpful for developing a better understanding of our learning model. Links are to amazon.com; we do also have several copies available at the high school library for parents to check out:
