Drs. Marshall and DeCapua provided a year-long series of workshops on MALP® and Project Based Learning for the Boston Public Schools’ Office of Educational Options. Students who attend programs that fall under this umbrella are middle and high school students who are typically behind in terms of literacy and numeracy; some have dropped out and returned to school and others are struggling to remain in school despite great learning gaps. This professional development series enabled participating teachers to implement project-based learning in their classrooms using the MALP® framework. They found it to be extremely helpful in their practice, as it empowered them to engage and involve students in ways that maximized their potential. The strategies and techniques that are inherent to MALP® are not only useful for English learners and/or SLIFE — they are highly effective for native English speakers who are disengaged or who require non-traditional means to showcase their strengths and build on their challenges.
