2013- 2014 6th Grade

Students selected for the TWIST program will participate in traditional social studies, math, and connections classrooms. During two class periods each day, students will participate in TWIST, which is an integration of science and language arts using technology and project based learning. We have provided a sample schedule so you can get an idea of what a TWIST week may look like. We anticipate a student's homework load will be no greater than a traditional classroom. Although students will be completing several large projects throughout the year, we will provide project time during the school week. Students will begin each unit with a pre-assessment which will determine what lectures the student will participate.

Typical Week Sample


6th Grade Sample Week: The schedule is flexible. For instance, on a Tuesday and Wednesday, half of the students could take part in an extended lab and the other half in an extended language arts workshop. The students would swap on the next day.
