Mind Works Class
This project-based class focuses on your development as a self-directed learner. Before students can become successful in guiding their own learning, assessment of themselves--their strengths and areas for improvement--is necessary. In addition, other relevant topics include brain development and intelligence, organization and project management practices along with analysis of habits of highly successful teens and adults. Students will apply creative and critical thinking problem-solving skills and must aspire to be self-directed as well as work successfully with other members of a team. The majority of the projects are individualized for student's own interests. Learning how to showcase and present your projects to an audience is also a focus. A unit on career and college preparation is included. This class is a prerequisite for any Independent Study or Internship at PRHS.
