Emphasis is on project-based learning: student collaboration, technology integration, research and assessment through alternative methods.

4 schools participated in the initial project:

• Pompano Beach High

• Miramar High

• Indian Ridge Middle

• Nob Hill Elementary

Culminating presentations provided opportunity for students to show and share what they have learned.


High School juniors and seniors have taken the Career Network to the Great Wall of China. This project provided students with real-world career skills and experience as students develop a business plan of International economics to enter into the Chinese marketplace. Students show how an understanding of Chinese culture impacts business acumen.
