A showcase of The Mackay School students' talents

6th Grade Lesson: “How Does Growing Up Change Us?”

The 6th graders were taken outside to discuss an excerpt from the novel they are currently reading “Becoming Naomi León.” Instructor Alfredo Calderón asked students two essential questions in order to explore the central theme of the lesson, “How Does Growing Up Change Us?” Students thoughtfully reflected upon themelves, and demonstrated strong oral communicative abilities while relating stories about people and places that they have found influential to their development.

The class was brought outdoors for this activity where they were very attentive and participatory. The instructors Alfredo Calderon and Carla Chavez are looking forward to having more lessons and discussions outdoors during this academic school year!
