COMMUNICATION 2016 - 2017 School Year
The goal of the theme COMMUNICATION is to help students understand the concept of how various types of communication affect their daily lives socially and academically and how it can be used to identify many variables across the curriculum. The multi-disciplinary approach also helps students to recognize the connections between subject areas in the curriculum. Students will study the concept of communication in nature, math equations, social studies events, science experiments and activities, art theory, and language arts and how braille and sign language are used to communicate.
