Student Work from the School Wide Seminar on Elephant in the Dark

In September students participated in our first school-wide seminar for the 2023-2024 school year!  Our text for this seminar was Elephant in the Dark (based on a poem by Rumi; Retold by Mina Javaherbin).  In this seminar we discussed the values of perceptions, truth, understanding, differences, and cooperation.  For our post seminar activity, students worked in groups to write and/or draw what working together or solving a disagreement might look and sound like in our classrooms. 

Ask your child about this engaging and meaningful learning experience!
