2013- 2014 8th 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.



8th Grade Sample Week: There is flexibility built into the schedule as needed.
