Instruction occurs on a deeper level, but is differentiated contingent on student needs. We utilize a myriad of questioning skills, model higher level thinking skills, facilitate collaborative discussions and also delve into deeper cognitive complexity through collaborative and individual projects.

Students begin to learn research skills at the primary level and continually grow and utilize these skills to present new information in a project-based format.
