School Council December 8, 2016

Learning Goal: We will gain a better understanding of how our children are learning through the SAIL philosophy.

SC: I can identify the skills that my child will attain at JASS.

SC: I will be able to explain how SAIL is a part of my childs everyday learning.

SC: I know how to be connected with my child's Google Classroom

This is not what learning looks like anymore

How are your children learning?

Independently planning and learning (even their own labs!)
Learning with teachers together through inquiry....
and independently how they learn best.

We at JASS focus on the process of learning by using various frameworks.

-Design Process in GLS

-Creative Process in the Arts

-Inquiry process in Science

In GLS, the Design Process is used to deepen our learning! In science, the inquiry process is used to gain a deeper of scientific issues.
