  • Senior Defense-This week is when our students finish up their work in their academies.  Senior Defense is a culminating activity that brings everything together for an audience of teachers, administrators and peers.  The Health and Law Academies have used this task to prepare students for the next steps in their academic journey.  Students stand and deliver a 5-10 minute dissertation that covers both a relevant real life event and reflect back on the years that they have spent in the academy applying their knowledge to the issue.  Students cannot recieve the academy swag for graduation without completing this task, and while it brings stress, it also brings a feeling of accomplishment.  We know that this ability to synthesize, by brining different disciplines together will be a helpful tool no matter the student's path.  Only in school or Jeopardy! is knowledge segregated by topic.  So much of life uses reading skills, analytics, a little bit of reasoning, math and maybe history or the scientific method.  So what better way to wrap up high school than an assessment that puts it all together?!
