    Calhoun as an I.B. School and 6th grade science's role in it:

    I address the three fundamental concepts of the I.B. program in my Science Classroom on a daily basis.

    I support and teach Holistic Learning throughout the year by collaborating with History, Math, and English everyday during our team meeting to intertwine our curriculum making learning more relevant and meaningful to the student.

    Growing up and moving around as a military dependant, I was introduced to many cultures and am fascinated by each one. I share experiences and my knowledge of other cultures with my students as part of the Intercultural Awareness aspect of I.B., as well as, employing science lessons and activities that lend themselves to the learning of other cultures. An example of this is when we learn about the history and the cultural uses of dye color when we are working with food coloring.

    The I.B. concept of communication is fundamental to my science room.  We often work in cooperative grouping during labs and effective, respectful communication between partners in essential. It is also modeled by myself and all of the other 6-2 teachers.
