Introspection & Increased Academic Rigor
When students make the leap from 6th grade to 7th grade, they immediately are faced with more independence and responsibility. Throughout the year, students develop strong self-advocacy and self-management skills and recognize what type of learner they are. As students learn and understand their learning profile and their multiple intelligences, their ability to manage increased academic rigor and cooperative learning blossoms. Students dive into the questions, “who am I?”, “how can I stretch myself?”, and “what is my imprint on others?” Students are pushed to examine the world around them and harness expanded critical thinking skills.
