The Centering Course

From 2010-2012, I taught an innovative, interdisciplinary course that served as the “home base” for the Ninth Grade Experience. This course was loosely based on the Theory of Knowledge Course that is at the heart of the International Baccalaureate Program. In order to teach this course, I visited the classrooms of each content-area teacher on our team to learn more about the themes and ideas that might help us to draw connections across the curriculum. Then, I designed lessons, activities, and units that engaged the students in these “big ideas.”
