Project Based Learning
Creating opportunities for critical thinking
It is our vision to have Project-Based Learning as an everyday learning experience for our students at Milton Christian School.
Exceptional education at Milton Christian School is imaginative, innovative and interwoven with our essential Biblical identity. An exceptional learning community looks to produce and engage with culture by turning our visions into actions, our ideas into products. One of the ways that we will accomplish this is through the essentials of Project-Based Learning (PBL). And it is our vision to have Project-Based Learning as an everyday learning experience for our students at Milton Christian School.
Creating opportunities for critical thinking
At the core of Project-Based Learning is that real-world problems capture students’ interest and provoke serious thinking as the students acquire and apply new knowledge in a problem-solving context. This learning is contextual, creative, and shared. Students collaborate on meaningful projects creating opportunities for groups of students to gather information, think critically be creative and communicate in order for them to answer challenging questions or solve complex problems.
Differentiated Instruction adhere's to the belief and theory that each individual student should be educated to their own personal interests, passions, ability level and learning style. Rather than the group mentality that places large groups of students in a classroom and teaches them all the same thing and the same way. Instead, Milton Christian School values each student as an individual child of God, and educates them to their personal goals, progress and journey of learning. This is the reason MCS has small class sizes.
In Science, for example, students do not study a world that came into being on its own. Instead, they learn that God created the world and everything in it, that He upholds the world through His providence, and that Christians have a responsibility to care for the world as stewards of creation.
In Social Studies, students are not taught that great leaders or social movements are solely responsible for the course of human history. Instead, they learn that God shapes history as a way of carrying out His plan for the world.
In Language Arts, students are not taught merely how to write effectively and spell correctly. Instead, they learn that language is a gift from God that can be used in a way to glorify him and benefit others.
In Physical Education and Health, they learn that their bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, and that God expects his people to serve him with their bodies. God’s words are spoken in the classrooms of a Christian school. His voice is also heard on the playground, in the hallways, in the office, in the boardroom, and in the community to which the school witnesses. In even the smallest aspect of the Christian school, it is obvious that it is an institution that nurtures students in their faith, equipping them to eventually pass along God's truth to succeeding generations.
