Case study | REAL Projects at The Causeway School

Learning through REAL Projects is a design for learning that connects deep subject content with real world problem solving. REAL Projects enable all students to create extraordinary work that matters.
 
As part of The Causeway School’s professional development program over the course of the last two years, Vickie Jenkins, Director of Achievement has led teachers through working collaboratively to design projects. The key aspects of multiple drafting, peer critique, beautiful work and exhibition have been the pedagogy that has been transferred into their everyday teaching across KS3 and KS4.
 
The school’s gallery has been an integral part of the exhibition process. Students have a chance to choose a project they are interested in completing, and complete that project in an intensive week. REAL projects ask students to behave in an authentic role as someone in the expert community would.
 
A major component of Learning through REAL projects is about bringing in adult experts from the community into the school, as well as bringing students out into the expert community. Projects are derived from teacher passions and strengths, and allow students to learn new skills and content which support Causeways’ key attributes, for example, teamwork, resilience, leadership - with the whole school working together for one purpose.
