XBlock Presentation Today 3:15pm D208

Looking for something to do after school today?

Keen to learn more about XBlock in the NIS Middle School?

Want to know what trade secrets we are planning to give away at ACAMIS this weekend?

Always looking for an opportunity to give some critical friend feedback?

Well look no further! Come along to D208 today at 3:15pm for a journey through space and time as Ruth and I run through our ACAMIS Leadership presentation.

Presentation Blurb: 

Nanjing International School is in its second year of a fully operational student-led inquiry program in the middle grades. This program, dubbed “X-Block,” is an incubator for strategic learning initiatives relating to student voice, student choice, and pushing the boundaries of learning beyond the campus walls. The goal of this session is to share insights, challenges, and lingering questions both about the program itself, as well as around the notion of promoting student agency and a culture of trial and error within an inclusive, international, middle school context.

Hope to see you there!
