Learning Community G Theme and Goals for Spring 2019

This semester we are going to focus on the idea of “depth” in music, research, learning, intellectual engagement and community involvement. By the semester’s end, you should be “rolling in the deep” (thanks, Adele!), in the following ways:

  • being mindful and engaged students - listening, thinking, researching, questioning, and reading
  • appreciating and valuing music, art, and cultural/creative achievements in society and everyday life
  • developing a sense of intellectual agency, self advocacy, and empowerment through learning and participating in a community
  • using music, creativity, and reflection to make discoveries about the self and the world
  • Concert on Tuesday
  • Poetry and Guinea Pigs
  • Author's Day Tonight!
