How do you nurture a love of learning in middle-schoolers? Provide a curriculum that helps them make sense of their world. Give them assignments that involve technology, artistic creativity, and collaboration—and play to the strengths of different kinds of learners. Build up their skills and then ask them to show confidently what they know.
The approach to teaching and learning in our Middle School emphasizes thematic grouping and the interconnectedness of disciplines, ideas, and phenomena. At Brimmer, we’re training our students to think about complex topics from a variety of perspectives and to demonstrate knowledge in many different ways.
