Project based learning

What is project-based learning? And why is everyone talking about it? Project-based learning (PBL) is a teaching style that has students combine real-world skills with subject area concepts to find solutions for their long-term class project. Madison Academy incorporates this teaching style in a few of their classes, including Public Relations 101.

In Public Relations 101 students’ core project is planning the Neely’s Bend 5K, which benefits the Madison Academy work-study scholarship program, as well as the 100 Club of Nashville, a local community charity.

 The students begin by learning about the foundations of public relations and how to create a strategy to effectively engage the community as participants and sponsors. They practice skills in communication, collaboration, creativity and critical-thinking. Activities include preparing and giving a speech at the Madison-Rivergate Chamber of Commerce, designing flyers and posters for the race and learning how to market using social media platforms. This is just the beginning; their skills will ultimately be tested at the April 22 event. Want to be part of it? Sign-up here.

Snow Day Solutions… e-Learning

Yes! You heard correctly. Our teachers are working on an e-Learning plan just in case the snow-pocalypse happens to Nashville again. We are out of snow days and do NOT want to make up days on Sundays in April or after graduation in May.
The plan is simple: Should we need to call a snow day, “classes” will be held online. Each class will be 50 minutes long beginning every hour from 9 AM. We will cancel periods 1 and 8. If is Friday, a text alert will notify students which schedule (M/W or T/Th) to follow. Students with a 0-Period class will have course work.
9 AM – Periods 2 (M/W) or 3 (T/Th)
10 AM – Period 4
11 AM – Period 5
12 PM – Periods 6 (M/W) or 8 (T/Th)

Students can sleep in a bit and still be done in time to play in the afternoon snow.

Some teachers have already practiced in class and others will soon. We appreciate the feedback we are getting from students.
Parents with concerns about internet connectivity should communicate with administration soon.
