Students at the Binet School, 3410 Bon Air Avenue, have been studying the novel Nim’s Island by Wendy Orr and will host an Exposition Day at 11:30 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 17, to showcase their learning experiences.
There will be student demonstrations of work (they have been doing character studies, water sampling and much more) and they will host visitors from Goldsmith Elementary School, as well as other community members and groups.
The projects are great examples of the Deeper Learning initiative that is at the forefront of the district’s strategic plan. The framework was adopted by the Jefferson County Board of Education in June 2016 as a way to encourage students to be more independent and take a more active role in their learning process.
Binet School serves students who have a combination of disabilities that can result in significant learning, developmental, or behavioral problems. Teachers and staff provide successful learning experiences through a highly structured and supportive environment.
