Creating Interdisciplinary Projects through Signature Projects

Session 6
Shannon Schmidt, Lindsay Kelland, Emma Parsons

Teachers are always looking for ways to have students make meaningful interdisciplinary connections. After years of trying various methods, we have found a sustainable way to incorporate Signature Projects into our curriculum multiple times a year for each grade. Project Innovate, Architecture Expo, Shakespeare Study, Globalization of Chocolate, and Teen Activism are just a few of the project titles bringing in pieces from every subject area throughout the year. Teachers do not have to reinvent the wheel each year! Even when most of these projects are ungraded, we have found that students engage, enjoy and learn from these collaborative, in-depth projects each year!
