|We love our new learning commons - what a perfect venue for sharing our public products! Thanks Breadloaf and Dore & Whittier for nailing this design :-)|
Today when I stopped in, the class had already moved to the complex group work of taking their diverse ideas and working to a consensus of what ideas they wanted to incorporate into an overall class idea. Fascinating to watch our 7th graders navigate the real world challenges of collaboration, revision and compromise - work they navigated with skill I wish could be taught to many groups I have been a part of. The final product will be 3-D models that will be shared with the Shelburne School Board for their consideration. Most exciting - there were some really fantastic / out of the box ideas for how those spaces might be improved over the coming years. Can't wait to share their solutions later this month!
