The Design-Based Learning methodology:

  • Ignites creativity and activates critical thinking skills through hands-on Design Challenges
  • Provides increased opportunities for collaboration, communication, and innovation within curricular requirements
  • Engages students in seeking and solving curriculum-based problems as they build a city, colony, civilization, or other small, contextual model in the classroom
  • Cross-curricular connections are made to the content through standards-aligned Guided Lessons
  • Civics is embedded through the governance of the small model of a city, promoting social responsibility in students and increasing equity
  • Student-centered, research-based teaching methodology successfully taught in K–12 classrooms since 1971
