Students attending High School Enrichment Classes (Grades 9 -12) meet every Thursday.
Below is a listing of Enrichment Classes along with the teachers name and a brief description of content to be taught in the Fall of 2021.
Science education involves performing experiments, exploring, researching, observing, hypothesizing, testing, collaborating, and learning. Students will explore a wide variety of science topics, perform hands-on activities, and work in groups with their same aged peers. Science enrichment classes provide an opportunity for students to have fun and gain an understanding of the world around them.
Writing class will creatively apply reading, writing, and speaking/listening skills. Student curiosity and critical thinking skills will be nurtured by providing diverse and interactive opportunities throughout these areas as well as cross-curricularly. Additionally, different forms of writing will be experimented with: Narrative (& personal), Informational, Persuasive, Opinion (descriptive).
Over the course of the 30 class periods, students will be introduced to theories, terms, and strategies at both the macro and micro economic levels. The students will gain practice thinking like an economist when it comes to larger issues such as taxation and regulation as well as personal issues such as buying a car, saving for retirement, or starting a business.
High school students focus on the creative benefits of art. At this point, they usually know what style of art they are passionate about so I provide individualized instruction to enhance their skills. Also, I use their interests to expand and enhance their artistic abilities.
