Honors Level Courses in Freshman Academy~
Class Officer Leadership Team
Discussions revolved around deadlines for Summatives- as this has been a concern for many of the Freshmen. A two week window has been set after the due date-
We hope to have Zach Ennis (as the class president) generate the email to class stating the new policy about DEADLINES! Grassroots effort is the way to go on this...
Finals Week will be Different for Freshmen-
Dave McDonald has been working hard to arrange our key note speaker for the kick off of our "Aviation Expedition"- the plan is to have an interdisciplinary approach to aviation- when during each course, students will be exposed to content related to aviation-
We will also be constructing mini-versions of objects that can fly to get the students thinking about the final expo in June- thinking about gliders, kites, flying saucers, balloons, propellers- and we're always open to ideas!
For some light reading :) check out King's website for all of the Expeditions they had done- impressive!
