For the first unit of Urban Planning, we are studying bridges and building our own. Before we do that, we need to see the big picture of Chicago, the skyscrapers as well as the bridges surrounding the loop, to get a sense of what’s out there.
At the end of this FE, students will have:
- prepared 3 to 5 thoughtful questions to ask during a meeting
- taken notes during the talk
- completed the FE worksheet
- taken pictures of the most interesting bridges and buildings on our walk
Spring Term at GCE began yesterday, April 7th. We are excited to have entered the fourth and final quarter of the school year, but we also know that time quickly passes and sadly, this school year will be behind us. Spring Term is a great time for practicing the skills of running through the finish line, bringing together all the hard work throughout the year. Students must also balance immediate desires for outdoor play with attention to indoor responsibilities; and perhaps most importantly, students enjoy the waning every day moments that build their peer and student-teacher relationships that help make GCE so special. Take a look at what’s ahead this term and look forward to Final Presentations and Graduation at Goodman Theatre on June 4, 2015.
