What else makes Brown Barge unique? <br /><ul><li>Curriculum is divided into trimester areas of study.
Students study and learn with students from other grade levels.
Trimesters are called “streams,” homeroom is called TOR- short for teacher of record, and grades are given on a 1-5 scale.
Students attend BBMS from all over the county.</li></li></ul><li>Streams include…<br />Historical Motifs<br />Work Hard, <br />Play Hard<br />Oceans<br />Forces of Nature<br />Environment<br />
Impact <br />At the end of their eighth grade year, students spend a trimester in a stream called IMPACT, which is what I am teaching now. The stream premise is that “we all have a personal and civic responsibility to make an impact on the world in which we live.”<br />
Private Victory<br />Students created a collage to demonstrate their personal mission statement as an IMPACT assignment.<br />
Service learning project <br />My class is the physical and mental health simulation group. Students are: working on songs to sing at a children’s hospital, collecting money to add a suicide hot line, presenting a drug and alcohol awareness seminar at lunch, and a “Nutrition Rocks” field day during physical education one day.<br />
