March 16, 2017 Exhibition Night!
See below for Tentative Timeline.
The I.B. Exhibition will be presented on Thursday, March 16, 2017.
The Exhibition is a requirement for our 5th grade students. Our students are required "to participate in a collaborative, transdisciplinary inquiry process that involves them in identifying, investigating and offering solutions to real-life issues or problems."
Our students will plan the exhibition, gather materials, record and reflect, and finally present the exhibition to the Jefferson community.
Our students will be rigorously monitored throughout the process. Students will keep an individual learning journal. The teachers will keep anecdotal records of student work and performance. Other permanent records of the exhibition will include the I.B. planners, photographs, video, and website based documents.
