When provided opportunities to apply learning through projects, students actively inquire, investigate, organize and "operationalize"
their ideas. Using process skills (such as SCANS and Habits of Mind) and technical competencies, students approach each problem as a
chance to collaborate, produce results, reflect on personal growth, and academic achievement.
In the Opera project, see how students at Roosevelt
High School in Honolulu, Hawaii used the season's performances at the Hawaii
Opera Theatre as the context for exploring a wide variety of social, historical,
cultural, and artistic themes.
