This year 9th graders are participating in a brand new interdisciplinary project. Each girl chose a "field of study" from several different themes: Art and Social Change, Connecting Cultures, Current Events, and Scientific Creativity. Students are learning a series of skills such as how to conduct specific research, how to create and use statistics effectively, how to write to express persuasive ideas, how to design visual graphics, and finally how to present their findings to a large group, all through the lens of their chosen topic. This week the freshmen had the opportunity to work with Michael Moon, a specialist in communication and design strategy, who helped them refine their "pitches" and brainstorm the layout and flow of their presentations for the upcoming showcase.
