This project was designed to give grade 3-5 teachers ideas to implement in their classrooms based on the practices of the Metropolitan Regional Career and Technical Center (The Met) in Providence, Rhode Island. The Met School is a high school where personalization, interest-based learning, exhibitions, real-life experiences and parent communication are their main focuses. This in-service presentation focuses on ways to make a classroom more personalized, how to manage a classroom where each student is doing a project of his or her own interest, how to prepare students to do a quarterly exhibition and the importance of communication among students, parents, teachers, and administrators. The intended use of these practices is for teachers to modify the way children and parents are treated both on an academic and on a personal level in their schools and classrooms.
