Project-Based Learning

This page is dedicated to the diligent work Warp & Weft History students have contributed to their group learning efforts during the Fall 2021 semester.  Learning historical events is only one part of their overall learning.  They are working on developing strong communication skills through class presentations.  They are working on team-building skills through collaboration on group projects.  Project-based learning keeps students engaged and invested in their learning.  Below are the projects that my classes worked on this semester.
