Deep Learning

A major portion of our curriculum is organized around deeper and longer-term study of topics. The learning experiences will not just be a "lesson" or a "unit" to cover.  Instead, they will be a deep, wide, and engaging experiences that may take anywhere from several weeks to several months to accomplish. 

Deep learning focuses on a topic that is both meaningful and important.  Various case studies, experiments, projects, and learning workshops are used to gather knowledge about the topic and generate lines of investigation.  Relevant tools from the various disciplines are used to study the topic and help students achieve a deep understanding of the various issues.  Throughout the experience, teachers structure time for students to produce high-quality work through multiple revisions.
