High School Humanities, 12 years
I begin the school year with foundational content, skills work and structured research & writing mini-projects. As the school year progresses, I gradually shift to project-based learning and allow for increased student choice and involvement. A mainstay of both my English and History classrooms are Socratic Seminars, literature units, and ongoing discussions of current events.
