Life Seminar 7 & 8

One semester course, meets every other day, required of 7th and 8th graders

In this course, students are introduced to multiple themes that help them explore relevant topics and real world issues. While examining their own beliefs, values, and experiences, students evaluate how difficult decisions impact themselves and others. Through respectful dialogue and reflection, students explore what it means to be a part of a community and their contributions to the communities to which they belong. While developing important communication skills, students gain awareness of how to navigate the difficulties of adolescent life and experiences. This is a two-year course that meets every other day for a semester each year giving the students opportunities to explore various topics throughout their junior high experience.
