ESAA Exhibitions of Learning Schedule

ESAA students look forward to sharing their learning with their school community on Monday, February 27th. Parents are encouraged to attend their child's Exhibition of Learning, and are welcome to stay to see the other projects. Students have focused on looking closely at the world around them, researching topics, creating solutions, and representing their ideas. Exhibitions of Learning are as much about their process as they are about the final product. Questions and connections are always welcome!

Trimester 1 Exhibitions of Learning

Trimester 1 Exhibitions of Learning Thumbnail

We are excited to invite you to ESAA’s Trimester 1 Exhibitions of Learning (EoLs) on Friday, November 18, 2016.  EoLs are the students’ culminating presentation of projects. These exhibitions illustrate the integration academics, arts, and our Habits of Mind and Learning found in students’ projects.  Students share their learning and problem solving through the creative process. Exhibitions of Learning are also an opportunity for friends and families to participate in the learning by asking questions and giving feedback to students on topics such as the process, working together as group, how the students’ thinking changed, or how might their newly gained knowledge be relevant beyond the project.

Connections: Building Community at ESAA

Connections: Building Community at ESAA Thumbnail

If school is about helping students understand the world around them, it makes a  great deal of sense to start the school year helping students better understand themselves as friends, learners, teachers, and leaders. With this in mind, ESAA teachers Rachel Pekarek and Jamie Faul created a school wide plan to build community during the first weeks of school. We began the year using this plan to provide students and teachers with the time and space to make connections not only in their classrooms, but throughout the school and in the community. The following are some highlights from our first two days of school.

ESAA 2nd and 3rd graders recently had the opportunity to attend a matinee showing of Theatreworks’ The Lightning Thief at the Weill Center.  Exposure to theater is important to everything from developing creativity and imagination to lengthening attention span.  It’s also a powerful connector to reading.  We were fortunate that our students had the chance to attend a live production of a book so many of them enjoy.

The Étude Group's Maker Movement

 The Étude Group's Maker Movement Thumbnail

There is a lot of talk in education these days about “makerspaces.” It seems to be a new buzz word. The reality is that while it may be a new concept for some in the education community, it’s one of the foundations for The Étude Group. While the concepts of making and creating are not new for us, our role in sharing this concept at a greater level with the community is.
