Subject Specialization—A Deep Dive Approach

Our 4th and 5th Grade teachers and students have been piloting a new program this year, one that allows students to engage in more project, problem, and inquiry-based learning. These grades have moved toward a block schedule in which they have had the luxury of spending whole days focusing on Language Arts, Math, Science, or Social Studies, respectively. This has allowed students to dive more deeply into the learning, to question more, to engage in higher-level thinking and in-depth critical thinking, and to make deeper personal connections with the material. This program has been a huge success—heralded by both students and teachers alike. We are now thrilled to reveal the plan to extend this learning approach to 2nd and 3rd Grades for the coming school year. The program will be modified to meet the learning and developmental needs of 2nd and 3rd Graders while retaining the goals and objectives of the original model.
