We are excited to announce the addition of 4 new classes for next year!
Introduction to Engineering Design - Students will be introduced to the engineering profession and a common approach to the solution of engineering problems, an engineering design process. Utilizing the activity-project-problem-based (APB) teaching and learning pedagogy, students will progress from completing structured activities to solving open-ended projects and problems that require them to develop planning, documentation, communication, and other professional skills.
Principles of Engineering - This survey course exposes students to some of the major concepts that they will encounter in a postsecondary engineering course of study. Through problems that engage and challenge, students will explore a broad range of engineering topics, including mechanisms, the strength of materials and structures, automation, and kinematics.
AP Comparative Government & Politics - This course introduces students to the rich diversity of political life outside the United States. The course uses a comparative approach to examine the political structures, policies, and political, economic, and social challenges among six selected countries: Great Britain, Mexico, Russia, Iran, China, and Nigeria. Additionally, students examine how different governments solve similar problems by comparing the effectiveness of approaches to many global issues.
Honors English II - In addition to everything covered in English II, the honors version includes more frequent writing exercises, an emphasis on higher order thinking, more advanced structure in writing, Socratic style class discussions, the creation of a writing portfolio, frequent self-evaluations and peer reviews, the addition of a second term paper, a focus on debate skills, and more in-depth analysis for each unit. Students will learn to apply research and critical thinking to each unit, taking a more collegiate and independent approach to learning.
