My Students

My students come from two different academies, one that focuses on global issues and one that embraces a classical education. Our class blends classical ideas, such as truth, beauty, and goodness, with global ideas, such as investigate the world and weigh multiple perspectives. One way to accomplish this blending of visions is through the arts and humanities.

Moving towards a humanities-centered model, our classroom is a place of reflection and creation, building the knowledge and skills students need to become global citizens who live ethically while taking action towards worthy causes in the world.

Although our students are a diverse group located in a large, urban high school, the smaller learning community model allows students to connect with each other as they focus on interdisciplinary connections, project-based learning, and service to the community​. Our students are creative, interested in the world, embrace outside-the-box thinking, and are ready to make a difference locally and globally.

Our classroom also is becoming a nurturing environment within the school. Nothing is more rewarding than when a student who isn't typically in our class wants to hang out during lunch because the room feels inviting and safe!

My Project

Students often ask for examples of student work so it is important to have exemplars posted around the room. However, that is not the most important reason to display student work.

Displaying student work allows students to take pride in the hard work they invested in learning about a specific topic in history class.

Whenever they look at their displayed work, or talk about it with a peer, they will be reminded of the classroom activity and the historical content used in the project's construction.

While posting 2D projects, such as posters and paintings, is fairly easy using tape or tacks, 3D projects are more challenging. These shelves will be placed around the room to allow for posting of any projects that are not easily hung on the walls or bulletin boards.
