Vari­a­tions on Some Themes

Each year, the elemen­tary teach­ing teams develop a social studies theme, and they build an inter­dis­ci­pli­nary curricu­lum around this theme incor­po­rat­ing language arts, math, science, the arts, and commu­nity. Many of the skills needed to be success­ful in the acad­e­mic disci­plines inter­sect; the fluid nature of a theme-driven curricu­lum gives teach­ers the flex­i­bil­ity to teach and rein­force these skills across the curricu­lum.
