On Wednesday, June 12th, the 7th-grade classes presented their projects that they had been working on in Science, Language Arts and Math for the past month and a half. These presentations represented the culmination of their work in developing public spaces for communities similar to cities in Southern California. Ms. Jacoway, M. Giot, and Ms. Aseltine moderated this “town-hall” style meeting, after which there was a Q&A for each group and their proposed design. The goal of this presentation was for students to convey the impact their public space would have on their local community and ecosystems, and to persuade the community (parents and other 7th graders!) that their design was viable and beneficial.
We applaud the students for the quality of their work and presentations! We also applaud Ms. Jacoway and Ms. Aseltine for the well crafted, purposeful, meaningful and relevant interdisciplinary project they designed together. Purposeful learning is paramount to support students as they engage with the world around them!
