|Navasota ISD principals and teachers "Designing Work|
for Students" this spring.
In February, a presentation was made to the Board of Trustees regarding progress on a two-year plan to upgrade the school district's technology infrastructure to support innovative instructional approaches. In the fall of 2013, a cohort of teachers at Navasota High School and Navasota Junior High School will collaborate with Engage2Learn to integrate some project-based learning (PBL) into the schools' instructional programs. There is considerable research that suggests that the protocols that characterize discovery approach learning or PBL models can help facilitate greater long-term comprehension and application, more opportunities for creativity, greater achievement motivation, enhanced bonding to school, and better scores on standardized tests.
