Virtual School Classes in Action
Visit the Enki Virtual Community School
Come have a look at the Virtual Community School in action! As is true in any school – or home, for that matter – no one day or one class can give you a full sense of the whole program, but you can get some feeling for the students and the overall approach. We offer a description of what the students are working with in each selection, to help you orient to the work they are doing. But of more importance – and the reason for the Virtual Community School – is the relationships between the students and between students and teachers.
We hope this will help parents decide if the Virtual Community School will serve their child. Meet the 2018 groups:
Virtual Visit 1 : The Middle East
Virtual Visit 2 : Grade 6 Optics
Virtual Visit 3 : WWI Resistance:
Virtual Visit 4 : Mechanics:
Virtual Visit 5 : Weaving:
Virtual Visit 6 : Ancient China:
Now they are going to tackle some of the questions that arose from his life, as a debate. Our goal is to help the students learn to explore opposing opinions and be able to disagree respectfully. For this reason we have them brainstorm opinions that would apply to each sides. Here we see the students using the writers’ workshop time to plan their debate points. And then we get a peek onto a debate practice.
