Our scholars are hard at work!
In order to be true scholars, we use the Depth and Complexity Icons to help us make stronger connections and to take our thinking to a higher level. We have learned about and are currenltly incorporating DETAILS, RULES, PATTERNS, LANGUAGE OF THE DISCIPLINE, ETHICS, TRENDS, MULTIPLE PERSPECTIVES, CHANGE OVER TIME, UNANSWERED QUESTIONS, BIG IDEA, and ACROSS DISCIPLINES.
The new session of STEMinars started on January 29. Every Tuesday and Thursday afternoon, the students go to their STEM based class for extended learning.
