What is your Vision of a Perfect School?

      Would like to design your own school?  Ms. Gould's psychology class is doing just that.  They have been assigned to build a school, based on this criteria:


- How does your school make learning enjoyable?

- How does your school prepare learners for the future (college/work/life)?

- How does the research (sleep, teen brain, learning/memory, development) back up your choices?


     They have been using a free online program called "Posterous", to share their ideas with other classmates.  The school designing process is also based on what they have learned about the brain, that can help people succeed.  It is going to be very interesting to look at what school designs students produce.  Who knows, maybe their ideas could benefit our school?
