English/ Humanities

 We will investigate our family ancestry, write interviews, uncover and write about sacred family stories & memoirs, and research our ancestral country’s geography and culture. Students will create multi-generational family trees, publish biographies of a grandparent or great-grandparent (or any other “grand”or “great”), and select a personal passion project to present about their family and/or culture.  All students will be required to orally present.

Spanish

Students will develop more sophisticated reading comprehension, writing, listening, and speaking skills in the Spanish language. Working in small groups, students will research the indigenous roots of Latin America, with the deeper goal of developing a reverence for their host land and host culture. All students will be required to orally present and must have an independent reading book in Spanish each day.

CULTURAL LITERACY

Learning Lab

Working at individualized work station, students will have the opportunity to create and evaluate progress on personal learning goals, maintain their own semester portfolios, and complete self-reflections. A class set of mobile Chrome books are available for accessing digital portfolios and publishing and students must have an independent reading book daily and must demonstrate independence, self-direction, and respect for other’s learning in order to participate.

Geo-Literacy

Exploring our world’s physical landscape to understand our world as a place with diverse physical features and cultural geography.  Starting with maps to gain an understanding of spatial sense, younger children will progress to understand the world in spatial terms through continents and associated landmarks.  Older students will expand their knowledge from maps to the five themes of geography.
