Before October break our class finished our unit on “How the World Works”. This week we are circling back to our year-long unit “How We Express Ourselves.” The students did this through developing a list of ways we communicate our understandings effectively. They explored different options of what workshop they might want to attend to gain skills or learn about presentation tools. Next, they participated in a workshop to learn about a presentation style or tool.
Next week we will move on to our new Unit of Inquiry – How We Organize Ourselves – with the aim to develop a concrete understanding of the Central Idea: Social enterprises consider purpose and market forces when creating products and services. Nonetheless, the students will continue to work on expressing themselves through their I-Act-time projects and attend presentation workshops once a week.
