At Building 21, teachers design flexible, problem-based “studios” through which students explore and take action on an engaging, important issue in the world.

THE STUDIO LEARNING CYCLE

Each 8-week studio, which makes up one unit of study, is a journey through the Building 21 “Studio Learning Cycle.” Units are framed around a central problem or issue, and all learning resources and activities are designed around secondary “driving questions” that help students explore the issues. Click below to explore several key types of curricular assets that are central to Building 21’s studio model.
