This exciting 6-week course will explore different ideas that are worth sharing. We will watch Ted Talks, read, critically think, and discuss ideas while taking on a new and exciting project each week. Students will work on reading and writing skills. Student-designed and led projects might include a community outreach project, a survey, and data collection, poster, drawings, goal setting, presenting research, or conversations with peers/family. This curriculum is an innovative way to explore interesting ideas that involve science, social studies, pop culture, and technology while focusing on reading skills with a specific project outcome. Objectives over the 6 weeks include understanding sequence, identifying main ideas and key details, making connections, organizing supporting details, recognizing tone, and making predictions. Join us for a fun and exciting class! We look forward to seeing you there!
