RealSchool is a club I run at The Frisch School that uses the Whole Person Learning approach. The club has students engage in experiential, self-directed and collaborative learning by having each member choose an interest he/she has and then develop that interest in a way that benefits the larger community. This past school year, we started RealSchool teams in App Making, The Arts, Finance, Journalism, Marketing, Nutrition, Religious Identity, Social Entrepreneurship, and Web Design. With those teams, we created many different types of activities not only for ourselves but for the larger school and local community. Those activities included:
* an art exhibit on self-image
* a totally student-made Yom Iyun
* a three-day, pre-Shavuot program called Detox for the Decalogue that focused on physical, mental and spiritual health.
Feel free to check out our RealSchool blog and our RealSchool Facebook page, both of which track our club's activities as well as innovations, particularly in education, that we think are compelling and that are changing the way we think, teach and learn:
