The eighth grade Palos South Capstone Program is now in its second year. The students are engaged in a problem-based learning project that is community based and will run for approximately 30 sessions. Capstone will follow an inquiry approach to learning that involves a process of exploring several different solutions to real world issues which will lead students to ask questions and make discoveries in search of new understandings and outcomes. Our inquiry model has been adopted from the Stripling Inquiry Process model. The first phase of the process is Initiating Inquiry. The 2016-17 Capstone Projects link lists questions in each of the three areas (Economic Development, Environmental Concerns, and Conservation Efforts) that will provide the framework for problem based learning to occur.
