The Elk Grove Charter School is committed to creating individualized educational opportunities for students by combining classroom instruction, independent study instruction, and community and workplace educational experiences. This educational approach is for students who seek an alternative to the traditional classroom-only instructional approach. It is also an alternative to the Elk Grove Unified School District’s comprehensive and continuation high school programs.
Enrollment for the 2015-16 school year is impacted! For more information, please see our admissions section in the links above.
One-hundred percent of middle school students recently went on a field trip to the I-Max Theater to see a Lewis and Clark movie which really showed how important keeping a journal is!
On May 25th, 8th graders are going to a middle school leadership conference.
In class we are having a writing contest and finishing up Odell units. Soon we will start reading The Count of Monte Cristo.
Students are working on their Odell Unit Three research projects. They have chosen an area of investigation based on their interests, and their research will be based on questions they have made up themselves. This unit ends in an expository essay. They will be given time to type their essays in class, but most will have to finish typing the essays at home or during one of the English labs or study hall. Please plan ahead, and let me know if there are any anticipated problems concerning typing essays.
Many students are currently working on a research unit based on the impact of man-made designs. Students follow an inquiry path based on a design they are interested in. At the culmination of the unit, students will present their findings in either an expository essay or a PowerPoint or Prezi Presentation. In American Literature, we are currently focusing on the contributions of poets Emily Dickinson and Walt Whitman.
For their final unit of English Twelve, students are being forced to abandon their comfort zones and choose between Orwell's 1984 and Huxley's Brave New World. Each novel paints a dystopian view of the future. But rest assured, the students will have recovered by graduation day! Don't forget to order your caps and gowns!
