Students of McKinney Middle School and Yellow Springs High School held their annual Fall Exposition Night, showcasing end results or intermediate stages of the many PBL projects happening at the schools. Projects included narratives of a runaway slave to the design of a book jacket for those same stories, to pointing out the many iterations of the ubiquitous Fibonacci sequence, to the re-enactment of an 1860s soirée, complete with period dancing and dress; students, parents and teachers crowded the halls for a good two hours. Afterwards, a community-building potluck, organized and hosted by the many student clubs, was the vehicle to engage students and community members in structured conversations.
