This course is a makerspace-inspired study of writing and reading in the Humanities. It prepares each student to meet individual goals while hitting every target for English 12 students in Brewster.
Students are given unique versions of flipped instruction, project-based learning, and alternative assessment. This frees them up to do authentic work in a collaborative environment.
One focus is on reigniting the writing and reading lives of students before they leave public school. We use a universal writing process and a reflective, student-driven reading process to empower even the most reluctant students.
Instruction and resources are posted to the course website (http://sisypheanhigh.com/malachite/). On Google Classroom, the Classwork tab will contain all formative and summative assignments, plus copies of most resources.
