MUSE infuses Passion Based Learning with Core Academics to create learning opportunities that are challenging, individualized and unique. Students are encouraged through their interests and passions to learn at a deep and meaningful level.
Through thoughtful questions and discovery, students are encouraged to relay their interest and passions to teachers and peers. The teachers uncover what the student knows about their passion and what it is they want to learn. Questions are then formulated and the exploration begins. Teachers take the student’s lead and provide opportunities for projects throughout the semester based on these interests. Students work in a variety of environments (alone, one-on-one, and in small and large groups) and through investigation, study and, research - learning unfolds.
MUSE Passions Based Learning
Specific to each developmental level, core academics (math, science, language arts, social studies, history etc) and age-appropriate milestones are woven into topics which are derived from the students themselves while also being relevant.
Self-efficacy is defined as “my belief in my ability to be successful by accessing my open, resourceful and persistent skill sets.” Research shows that a student’s belief in their ability to successful directly relates to being successful.
MUSE values and exercises sustainable practices on our campuses and in our curriculum. This comes to life with our Food Energy Water (F.E.W.) initiative, where students educate themselves and the community on the process of re-purposing and conserving these precious resources.
