The Intermediate program consists of 3 hours of classroom instruction per week, with a complete syllabus and schedule provided for 4 additional days of study at home. Intermediate students will continue with literature and poetry study based in Socratic discussion, both persuasive and creative writing, and math concepts explored through challenging, real-world applications. Our history studies will be focused on Ancient Times, and we will join the Elementary students in creating an immersive Living History museum at IfSpace each semester. We will continue our study of the sciences with an interdisciplinary, hands-on approach that prepares the student for high school science.

Planned curriculum includes (but is not limited to) the final volume of Building Foundations of Scientific Understanding, Teaching the Classics, IEW Ancient History-Based Writing, History Odyssey: Ancients, History of the Ancient World, and team explorations through Mathalicious. A complete list of curricula, history and science spines, and living books and supplies will be supplied to families upon registration.

Leigh-Ann leads this class in machine sewing for beginners!¬†Students in Level 2 are expected to have some familiarity with machine operation and sewing, and be ready to work on more advanced techniques including garment and stuffed toy construction. Leigh-Ann’s extensive sewing experience leaves her well-positioned to support kids in a wide range of projects!

IfSpace provides several sewing machines, but students who have a machine at home are encouraged to bring it to class to increase their familiarity with their home machine. We also provide a limited selection of notions and fabric, but students are welcome to bring their own materials from home if they wish to use something specific for their projects.

Students hone their research, argument, presentation and persuasive skills as they represent the international community of the United Nations in various crisis scenarios. We will learn parliamentary procedure, how to draft resolutions, and the art of the caucus as our students how to represent a given point of view and negotiate resolutions that meet the needs of their country. After initial scenarios are introduced, the bulk of position research will need to be completed at home, as class time is reserved for caucus and debate!

Highly interested students are invited to travel with us to the Model UN conferences in early 2017 – more information coming soon!
