Glendale Elementary School is the first school in Indian River County that offers PROJECT CHILD.
Project Child is a program developed by Florida State University that has received national acclaim. It is a standards-based instructional system that incorporates a triangulated team teaching system to enable teachers to use multi-dimensional strategies, including technology, hands-on activities and text related materials. (3 teachers, 3 grades, 3 years, 3 learning modes).
Project Child teachers have put forth a great deal of effort to transform their classrooms into multidimensional resource rooms where technology and hands-on learning can be embraced to motivate students of the 21st century.
We now have four sections of Project Child. We started with two sections and expanded to four after three years of success. Roughly half the school remains "traditional classrooms for parents and students who choose not to participate.
