Historic Liverpool Project Based Learning Program
What is the history of Liverpool before colonial times? Who was Governor Macquarie and why is he important to Liverpool’s History? What remains of the original convict designed and built buildings in Liverpool?
Some of the questions you may choose to answer through our Historic Liverpool project-based learning program.
Following your stage’s curriculum focus, your role will design your own question, research, then present your findings to a panel in the final session with the goal of adding to Liverpool’s local history resources.
What is Project based learning?
A program where “students work on a project over an extended period that engages them in solving a real-world problem or answering a complex question. They demonstrate their knowledge and skills by creating a public product or presentation for a real audience. As a result, students develop deep content knowledge as well as critical thinking, collaboration, creativity, and communication skills.” https://www.pblworks.org/what-is-pbl
For this program students will choose an area of focus that they are curious about and become historians through exploring Collingwood House, learning research skills, listening to, and questioning an expert on the topic, and gaining presentation experience.
The program runs over 9 weeks with 4 interactions with museum/ library staff every second Thursday. The students work independently on their project during the time between the onsite visits.
Please note: Students must attend all sessions.
