At Brookwood real and relevant learning experiences are integral to the daily work students do. Teaching students to read or to reason with numbers becomes relevant to students when their learning context necessitates the use of such skills. When we began our Dual Language Immersion program in German in 2016, we were adamant that no student would miss the STEM learning that each grade level enjoys in the form of shared research in and outside of the school.
Below are awesome time lapse video examples of STEM work in the first grade depicting our very own Monarch life cycles as witnessed by our students. Both videos are the same, except the first is narrated by our German Immersion students, demonstrating learning doesn’t have to be either/or at Brookwood as a DLI student.
