Transformative Learning Experiences (TLEs) are project-based curricula that make high school meaningful. Developed by Springpoint, TLEs are deeply researched, youth-centered, informed by culturally responsive pedagogy, and richly supported for teacher implementation. Explicitly designed with both rigor and purpose in mind, TLEs focus on real-world problems that leverage students’ passions and speak to their interests and identities. They require students to engage in deep thinking and practice of essential post-secondary skills, create an authentic product, engage with experts and members of the community, and present their work to an authentic audience.
