Lighthouse Community Charter School, Oakland

The four-member teaching team, spanning first through tenth grade, will engage in a two-year study of best practices in student engagement. They will dive deeply into the Expeditionary Learning and Deeper Learning models, attend several conferences and institutes, receive onsite coaching from an Expeditionary Learning coach, and visit and share with other schools. Institutional capacity to support in-depth project based learning and inquiry has been historically limited. Through their professional development, team members aim to bring renewed coherence in line with updated Common Core standards.
