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.
STEMinars are finished for the year. Instead, we will be working on engineering projects in the classroom.
