Dear Learners and Families,
Presentations of Learning, or POLs, have been happening around campus weekly throughout the month of February! If you didn’t catch it, this past week our Upper School learners took the stage at our own Shakespeare Theater for Get Lit! on Wednesday evening in true poetry slam fashion with the lights dimmed and candlelit tables. Presentations of Learning are the culminating event that takes place as a project comes to a close. Learners are encouraged to share what they have learned throughout their project with the public, whether it be the school community or experts in their field of study. In this POL, learners are provided the opportunity to take the stage to share a classic poem and their own poetry writing in response to their classic of choice.
Rather than direct her learners to memorize specific classics, after studying poetry together with them, Mrs. Jodi Blinn, one of our Upper School English facilitators, encourages her learners to express themselves giving them the voice and choice to choose their own classic poem that they identify with the most. Learners also have the voice and choice to contribute their poems in a variety of other mediums, including paintings, drawings, and illustrations.
Please keep an eye out for future POLs listed here in the Monday Message in the Upcoming Events section. POLs are also noted on our Community Calendar. Attending POLs in different grade levels is an excellent way for you and your children to learn more about the scope and sequence of study as well as the facilitators throughout the different grade levels within our school program.
We hope to see you at the next POL!
