  • Genius Hour begins August 18!

    Posted by Becky Ashe at 8/17/2014
    After empathizing and ideating with students, parents, and teachers last year we arrived at the prototype schedule that will kick off the test phase on Monday, August 18.  We're so excited to bring Genius Hour to the students and teachers of the L&N!
     
     Genius Hour is several things.  It is:
    • a direct response to students asking for a "brain break" and opportunities to participate in clubs even if they ride school buses,
    • a response to parents asking for teachers to be able to incorporate and share "passion" interests and projects to enrich students' lives,
    • a model based on a Google practice called "20%."  The idea is to encourage employees to spend 20% of their time on passion projects, this way when they return to their normal tasks, they are more energized and even more creative after stretching that other side of the brain for a spell,
    • an opportunity to bring the educational strategy of "Genius Hour" (look it up on Twitter) to our student body in their own way,
    • a way for us to offer small group tutoring and intervention to students who need it during the school day,
    • a chance to do test prep training for high stakes assessments like the ACT and SAT,
    • finally, a strategy to allow teachers to group by subject areas on a regular basis for their own content planning to enhance instruction.
    For all these reasons, we're looking forward to watching students "feed their genius" by participating in a variety of activities.  Does it look different from other schools?  Yes.  Does it require a level of maturity and accountability on the part of every student?  Yes.  Do we think our students are up to it?  YES YES!  Stay tuned for tweets and posts about how our grand experiment looks as we kick it off this week!

  • logo PSAT Registration

     

    The PSAT/NMSQT (for 10th and 11th graders) and PSAT 8/9 (for 9th graders) will be administered at the L&N STEM Academy on Wednesday, October 19th.  It is our goal to test 100% of 9th-11th graders this year.  The test is $20; financial assistance is available to those in need--inquire by emailing sarah.salerno@knoxschools.org.  

     

    The PSAT is the pre-SAT, one of the two entrance exams (SAT and SAT) required for college admission. Students who take the PSAT will receive valuable feedback in regards to their strengths, weaknesses, college readiness levels, AP course potential, personalized free online test prep, and access to college planning tools. The school will use PSAT data to help inform decisions on course placement (for future years), students who need additional help in subject areas to ensure they are college-ready upon graduating, and students who may be potential qualifiers for the National Merit Scholarship Competition (junior year).  Students are highly encouraged to take the PSAT all three years in high school (9th, 10th, and 11th).  Scores will be available in mid-December, and the school will offer "Interpreting Your Results and Next Steps" parent/student nights in January.  More information about the PSAT 8/9 and PSAT/NMSQT can be found on College Board's website at
