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 : Mathematics in the European Renaissance
Virtual Visit 4 : Humanities
Have a peek into a Grade 8 Virtual Community School’s Humanities class. In this class, the group is studying revolution in Russia and the struggle for equality. They are reading the story of Ekaterina Breshkovsky, the Grandmother or the Peasant’s revolution, working with her childhood devotion to the peasants or serfs.
This group is also taking the next step in formalizing their essay writing skills. Have a look at the Enki website to see how their final work came out!
Virtual Visit 5 : Art Work, the European Renaissance
In this short clip you can see how we approach doing artistic work, online. In this case we have already worked with the initial principles of perspective: overlapping, intensity, height, size. Now the students are applying these principles to drawings and paintings of Venice, as part of their study of the European Renaissance.
