Emblem ESTEEM Academy
Ethics * Science * Technology * Engineering * Entrepreneurship * Math
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. To learn about the icons, we are going on daily Scholar Treasure Hunts. So far, we have learned about DETAILS, RULES, PATTERNS, LANGUAGE OF THE DISCIPLINE, ETHICS, TRENDS, MULTIPLE PERSPECTIVES, CHANGE OVER TIME, UNANSWERED QUESTIONS, BIG IDEA, and ACROSS DISCIPLINES.
