HIGH QUALITY WORK
Learning Expeditions at Renaissance culminate in a demonstration of learning. These demonstrations are authentic products or presentations created by students that show how they have met the expedition's learning targets.
Renaissance explicitly focuses on teaching students to create high quality work. When students leave Renaissance they will be judged, not primarily on their ability to perform well on standardized tests, but on the quality of their character and the quality of their work. Developing an ethic of quality in our students is vital.
National History Day Documentaries Compete in State Competition
Congratulations to Kennedy and Jaidyn whose documentaries qualified for the state National History Day competition and to all of the other students who submitted their work for competition.
Examples of demonstrations of learning at Renaissance include documentaries, published literature, performances, and works of art.
