All second through fifth grade students have the opportunity to select their focus area each quarter. To begin the semester, they will receive somewhat of a menu to rank their choices for their focus area each quarter. Students are able to repeat areas more than once a year, but must participate in either dance or physical education during the year.
This provides students with more choices to enhance their skills in a specific area. For example, they may love music, but they have the choice whether they would like to learn piano, or create music using technology and record their own CD. They may select to either do a radio broadcast or a play product in drama class. By making their own choices, students are able to participate with students in their grade level from other classes.
Focus areas occur every day for six weeks, allowing students to develop their projects throughout the course of the class.
