The First Month in MV Middle
In The Hive, students are 3D printing, building, and creating. In Humanities, students are exploring the ideal of the “American Dream” – how it has changed over the years from a white picket fence to an influencer dream. And what are the different perspectives of the American dream from different groups of people? In math, students are learning through doing. Physically making human graphs, then moving to paper graphs and individual work – including something for each different type of learner.
Classrooms have become safe spaces, for students and teachers to ask questions, wrestle with assumptions and identity, and have courageous conversations. As shared by Middle School Head of Learning and Innovation Jennifer Santi, the Middle School faculty are “designing a learning experience, engineering and crafting lessons that drive impactful explorations of ‘being’ and building up students to be thoughtful, empathetic, inclusive human beings.”
