Curriculum in Progress

The library operates on a fixed schedule with a good mix of flexible time to book in classes for collaboration. Over the last two years we have moved to more of a project based learning approach, with a heavy focus on things like student choice and Genius Hour.

Students visit the library once a week for 45 minutes.  We do mini lessons over big ideas and engage in a great deal of self directed learning.

I'm working on revising a snapshot of what our curriculum looks like.
