10th Grade Semester Projects
1st Semester: Global Competition
Students engage in a multicultural and interdisciplinary investigation of the globe to examine sports, cultures, environments, freedom, personal expression, and unresolved problems of the modern world. This Global Competition Project is organized into academic and physical events in which student teams represent countries to earn assessments for each project component. Participation and exemplary achievements will earn house points, which count towards the House Cup. The Global Competition Project culminates in a simulated Olympic event.
2nd Semester: With Great Power…
Students will engage in a multicultural and interdisciplinary project that will examine the motivations behind historical and literary events and the responsibility of those who made those decisions. The With Great Power... Project requires students to identify historical and literary issues and evaluate the reasons decisions are made and the impact those decision have on our past, present, and future.
