Student Learning

Below are a few examples of student demonstrations of understanding from their inquiry-based learning unit, a free inquiry process where I support their (a) selecting a driving question, (b) planning of their unit of study, and (c) writing of their essay and creating of their authentic piece, an artifact reflecting their learning from throughout their unit.

These projects reflect just a portion of their dedication to this unit. Please contact me if you have further questions.
