CLASSROOM WITHOUT WALLS (CWOW)
Classroom Without Walls (CWOW) is a program which is aptly named: quite literally, we are extending the classroom beyond the normal confines of four walls and a strict timetable. Students delve into extended inquiry, real world application, and deeper exploration of curricular topics. CWOW events are highly-collaborative, and purposefully designed to encourage authentic, interdisciplinary activities.
CWOW events are once per month, during which time the regular schedule of six to eight short classes is substituted for two, three-hour blocks of time in which teachers plan an array of activities, projects, interdisciplinary units, field trips, labs, and explorations.
