Our Wisconsin charter school uses scientific research and project-based learning as the focus of our curriculum. Project learning is based on a constructivist model of learning that engages you in real-world scholarly activity because you get to chose topics that interest you.

This year at wildlands, we introduced jobs that each student can apply for. The jobs range from P.E. closet manager, to newsletter editor. We all filled out a resume and submitted it into the teachers along with a cover letter explaining why we should be chosen for the jobs we decided to apply for. We had different volunteers come in to act as the "interviewer" and conduct a job interview. They asked us various questions similar to those we would expect on a real job interview. We all had a 10 minute time slot to talk to the interviewers and make a case of why we would make a good employee for the job. We dressed up in nice attire, and gave a quick presentation. After we were interviewed, we waited to see if we got the job. If you did get the job, you had the choice to accept it or not. The people who accepted their job will be working on it for the rest of the semester.
