Junior High School GT Curriculum


Students will have the opportunity to choose any biography to read over the first semester. Students will present their biography to their GT class in a creative way after Christmas break.

1st and 2nd quarters: ARCHITECTURE

Students will learn about famous architects and buildings as well as learn essential building tools and skills. As a final project, students will get to choose whether they want to design and create a building of their choice, or create and design their own original story and pop up book. Student creations will be displayed at our Architecture showcase in January.

3rd quarter: Words and Thoughts

During the 3rd quarter, students will explore many different ideas and thoughts. Students will have a chance to discover some of DaVinci's greatness, explore and create their own poetry, analyze a film, and learn to ask good questions. Students will also present their biography presentation during this unit.

4th quarter: Fast Fun Facts- TED talks

Our final unit of the year will incorporate technology and individual student's passions as they discover and research a topic to present as a TED talk to their class. Each week, students will utilize new and different technology skills that will help make their TED talk presentation one to be remembered.
