Sixth Grade Independent Studies
The Sixth grade Independent Study project is the capstone experience for our students after many years of inquiry-based learning. Traditionally, the weeks of hard work culminate in our Sustainability Expo, where community members come learn from the students about their topics and their process, and see their finished work. For the class of 2020, independent study projects continued to evolve and thrive at home during the COVID-19 pandemic.
This year, each student worked closely with Maxx, Clancy, Meghan, and Kyle to create eBooks that demonstrate the depth and breadth of their studies. They worked with Meghan while designing their books and were challenged to think about how to visually communicate their ideas and research in a clear and compelling manner. Students thought about how composition, typography, illustrations and photography could work together to build cohesive eBooks that reflect what they learned about their topics. We invite you to explore the sixth grade’s Independent Study eBooks below.
