MPBN will feature five stories of innovative, student-centered, teaching and learning in Maine in a half-hour program that will be aired on Sunday, November 6th, at 10:30 AM, and Thursday, November 10th, at 11:30 PM.
The stories include a Spanish immersion program at the Lyseth Elementary School in Portland, a first-year student academy for Telstar High School students, an interactive local history bike tour which is part of the Presque Isle Middle School eighth grade experience, efforts by Yarmouth Middle School students to restore the clam population, and a set of intensive, experiential science opportunities offered for high school students at Mount Desert Island Biological Laboratory and Colby College.
The program is sponsored by the Nellie Mae Education Foundation. The program will also be featured within the next few weeks on the Maine Education Project website at http://www.mpbn.net /term/maine-education-project
