Gillispie learners are working to make connections between subjects each and every day. Teachers design interdisciplinary projects that engage students in a wide variety of relevant content and build essential skills. Every six days our Grade 6 students will learn and explore a wide variety of topics in; Math; Reading; Writing; Science and sustainability; Social studies; PE; Spanish; Art; Music; Technology; and Library.
“Teachers make a point of providing purposeful work that children thrive on at this age, such as developing critical thinking skills and analysis of literature, including Socratic seminars, bringing history alive, and developing an authentic joy of writing in a comprehensive writing workshop.”
