-Redesigning the Senior Year-
June 23, 2016
Welcome! We are so excited to share about our experiences with Redesigning the Senior Year as we have experienced it over the last 6 years! The teachers have been a part of the entire development of the MCIS, from the initial framework to the curriculum to the building of the wing onto the existing high school and beyond!
Don't have a "new wing"? NO PROBLEM! Everything that we are sharing can be done between a few classrooms by transforming traditional settings into interactive, flexible spaces and team teaching!

We will discuss how our seniors use project-based learning and technology in a 90-student, cross-curricular, team-teaching environment to prepare for post-secondary goals. This environment fosters a community mindset and increases the shared experiences of the outgoing class while enhancing student engagement up to graduation. Through a focus on 21st century skills and College Board approved college readiness standards, students work towards a growth mindset and daily improvement.
