Well the 8th grade math team aims to extend that thinking by getting students to realize that they can’t live a day without math (and not just because they have to come to class). We see math everywhere. Helping them achieve the goal of becoming efficient problem solvers means math is no longer considered a curse. Everything is a problem to solve.
Recently, the 7th Grade Social Studies Team began a new unit on Power & Conflict. In this unit they explore the various origins of power in society, the wide array of government systems and different religious, political and ideological conflicts from the 1400s to modern times. As a way to demonstrate their understanding of various government systems, students were tasked with creating skits that allowed students to apply their knowledge in a fun and creative way. At first students had to define various government systems, determine the source of power in those particular systems and research either past/present examples of those systems.
