Authentic work

Persevering to get just the right design in LEGO Robotics Club
Charlotte, Veda and Jared present the "Fun Fact of the Week" at Assembly
            In Muddy Boots Club, K-1's and 2-3's decide "Who Eats What in the Woods?"
 ...students work should be something they create on their own, or with others, that has real value in the real world.  They are capable of doing authentic work that adds to the abundance of ways that can make the world a better, richer place.

Teachers discussed the article Should we Connect School to Real Life? from Will  Richardson's new book, Why School?  Richardson envisions how students can create work that is relevant and useful in the world.  Our focus on Signature Experiences for students that develop leadership and communication is exactly what is called for.
