As I walked through secondary classes yesterday, I saw students engaged in a variety of learning experiences. I saw them mastering new information, thinking critically about it, collaborating with others, refining communication skills, and creating ideas, products and solutions.

In middle school I saw…

  • 6th grade scientists planning science fair projects.
  • 6th grade readers discussing the myth of Arachne.
  • 7th grade writers polishing final drafts.
  • 7th grade geographers writing adventure stories set in the area of the world they’d just studied.
  • 8th grade mathematicians solving a problem about angles.
  • 8th grade scientists conducting an erosion lab and explaining their findings.

I saw high school underclassmen…

  • Showing their learning on an Algebra I test.
  • Examining documents to gather evidence for why Rome fell.
  • Experimenting with potatoes to discover the limits of ideal cell size.

I saw high school upperclassmen…

  • Examining texts from John to infer information about the author.
  • Collaborating to solve pre-calculus problems.
  • Revising sample paragraphs to improve sentence transition.

I enjoy seeing all the ways OCSI students are being equipped to walk with God and impact the world for Him.
