FEATURE | blended learning
when an AP statistics teacher, Josh
Wilkerson, set his students to work
on a project that hit close to home. In
the summer of 2012, Grimes County,
where Navasota is located, suffered
through devastating wildfires that
destroyed 32 homes. The stats class
undertook a student-led comparison
of the use of volunteer versus service
fire personnel to understand where
the community felt
the biggest impact.
Working with experts
from Texas A&M
victims, workers and
people to create a
presentation that they
shared with the school
board and city council.
Along with regional
planning among su-
perintendents and the
opening of a school
“Here in Navasota we want our
students to be ‘life ready,’ ” said
Navasota Independent School
District (TX) Superintendent Rory
Gesch. That means preparing
students for careers to which they
are well-suited. Navasota received its
first real dose of PBL magic in 2012
