John Austin Peay averaged 38 yards per punt with no return yards. The Cougars lost the game.

Clarksville Academy: CBL

On Friday, September 25, we kicked off our 2015-2016 Challenge Based Learning year.  Our 2015-2016 Big Idea is ENGAGE.  We have 10 groups engaging with our Clarksville Community.  As we investigated our Challenges on Friday, we formed our Essential Questions, and created our Guiding Questions for the year.  Many groups conducted classroom research and others did “on-site” research conducting interviews with Guiding Resources serving as experts in their different fields. Clarksville Academy students could be found engaging all over Clarksville. This provides us with the needed information surrounding the framework as we work our way toward our Solutions.

Off Campus Groups included:

Beautification Group (Facilitated by Mr. Neizke) measured the site for the Clarksville Community Mural Project they are assisting with.  Seen here sketching and noting measurements.  They are consulting with the Clarksville Community Heritage Council, APSU, and Mr. Kevin Kennedy as resources.

Our Literacy Group (facilitators Kyle Christmas and Bridget Baron) Performing Arts group (facilitators Debbie Hollis and Amanda Pitt), and our Drug Awareness and Mental Health group (facilitator: Sarah Stonesifer) spent time in classroom research, reviewing the framework,  dividing into teams and constructing team names and signing contracts, establishing essential questions, along with outlining plans for the next CBL day.  Many planned Fall Festival Booths for fundraising.  They contacted (emailing & phoning) off campus resources, and experts in the field, calendaring events for further investigations as all groups ENGAGE with our community.
