NGA students participated in Project Based Learning by combining learning in History and English. As students begin to make meaning of the concepts from the classroom, they chose to create a children's book. This learning has evolved to create opportunities for students to embrace creativity, collaboration, communication, and critical thinking. In addition, they are learning real world skills through leadership, marketing, and design.

Governor Kemp and President Biden have their copy of the book.
Should you wish to purchase a copy as well, please contact NGA at 770-567-2960. Copies are also sold at the bookstore, A Novel Experience, in downtown Zebulon, GA.

Ninth Grade Academy Students Publish Children's Book 02/11/2021

Ninth Grade Academy Students Publish Children's Book

At Tuesday’s Board of Education Meeting, Janet and Clayton presented their PBL unit. It culminated in the publication of a children’s book. See the webpage story here. Students and a parents spoke about the PoG skills they developed and the deep content knowledge they obtained. The parent’s comments were very impressive as one mom shared her daughter’s excitement for learning. Janet and Clayton’s PBL exemplifies the kind of deeper learning we want for every child to experience every year. I know many of you are working on and have executed similarly deep, rich, and engaging learning units.

The students are so excited and learning so much about critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity!

Reserve your copy today!

Our student, Maddie Pickens, is on the marketing team for Sanna-Tizer Disinfects the Substitute. She sent a copy of our book to Governor Brian Kemp and has received a response! We could not be more excited!

This book is the product of Project Based Learning in which our goal is to engage students in the competencies from our Portrait of a Graduate. Coach Moon, Janet Hudson, and Sheryl Watts have participated in PBL professional development and created a cross discipline unit that incorporates Social Studies and ELA.

Although the book is a product of this learning, the experience is far from over as students are now in the marketing phase and will eventually read to younger students. In addition, there will be an advisory committee set up that will assist in determining needs, as they relate to COVID, in our community.
