Fall Classes 2019

Morning

Pyramid Project Scholar Project

Introduction to Logic, Characteristics of a Scientist/ Document Studies – Students continue applying the language of math to their core books and are encouraged to “wonder.” In addition, they are taught to follow lines of logic, apply the characteristics of a scientist, to discover and apply truth, experiment and make commitments to studying math consistently and with more vigor. They are given opportunities to give presentations and participate in simulations. Lectures are presented on the 9 Characteristics of Scientists and principles of the Inteligro Method as found in the book, Inteligro Math by Tiffany D. Earl

Leadership Education & Me Transition to Scholar Project

This class is designed to help new and Transitioning to Scholar students understand what Leadership Education is, what the Phases of Learning are, including Scholar Phases. They will be able to determine for themselves what phase they are ready to enter having confidence in their decision. Books will be read at home and discussed that support our sectional character themes for strengthening emotional intelligence. Opportunities to share and teach existing skills will be in place to build confidence and give experience. There will be fun activities as well as learning new skills and knowledge to support the students in their journey.

This class is to support students who will move into full scholar classes by the next school year.

Afternoon

Shakespeare Conquest Scholar Project

A fun, interactive immersion approach to studying the heightened language of one of the greatest bards who ever lived. The first semester students study one play in depth throughout the semester, discussing a few scenes at a time but they are challenged through the “Royal Challenge” to watch, listen to or read 17 plays during the same semester. It is a race, whoever gets to 17 first is crowned high king or queen. Over the course, there are lectures on interesting poetic nuances and they learn to create a vocabulary list, write papers and give presentations on Elizabethan Times.  They learn who Shakespeare was, his insights into human nature and many aspects of his poetry. 

Hero Project with Speech & Debate

Quest
