  • No Textbooks, No Problem

    When we first shifted away from traditional textbooks, to one-to-one laptops, it was a big adjustment for students, teachers, and parents. With the change, has come a positive outcome on student engagement. Traditionally, we followed the order of the textbook, the teacher taught and then that section of problems was assigned for HW. Now, the class Canvas page functions as the textbook and students are presented with various ways to interact with problems.

  • 7th Graders Tackle Human and Civil Rights Unit

    During the unit on Human/Civil Rights, students discovered the contributions of our Enlightenment philosophers to the idea of equality for all men. Students then were introduced to the infringements upon these Enlightenment ideas of equality and the atrocities men committed against men. Students studied the idea of genocide and discussed the eight stages of genocide through their knowledge of the Holocaust.
