Every year after winter break, all regular classes are suspended at Environmental Charter High School for grade-level interdisciplinary projects: this month of calculated chaos is called Intersession.
Teachers in each grade craft a project that will address an Essential Question and incorporate hands-on applications of all disciplines. For example, in 9th grade, students work in teams to design and build a sustainable community, asking: What is the relationship between community and quality of life? Local community members and elected officials will be judging their proposals at the final Community Forum. The 12th grade is addressing the question: Why does my community need me?
They’ll be presenting their work at the ECHS Community Forum on Friday, Feb 6 — come see what they have done!
