History in the Making
How did we get here? What is the meaning of existence? What will the future hold for our universe? What is the next chapter in this grand story of the cosmos? So much of education is asking questions, and searching for answers. Often, the search leads only to more questions.
My answer to these questions? The most frustrating answer you’ll ever hear: I don’t know. Haven’t got a clue… not in the slightest.
Enter the brilliant teens of Community Montessori’s Woods Program! They’ll be displaying a semester's worth of meaningful, hard work and learning in the Big History Exhibition that will take place at our school on Thursday, May 12, 2022. We’ll kick things off with the opening ceremony in the CASA dei Curiosity, followed by exhibits on display in the Multipurpose Activity Center (MAC). These will touch on subjects such as Humanities, Biology, Mathematics, History, and more. Projects will range from the emergence and diversification of life, to the history of Humankind and current events, and beyond to the future. The Big History Exhibition is one of those events that summarizes well the Montessori approach to education - our learners learn how to learn: hands-on and experiential, with real world application, and with the learners themselves ever at the helm. It is a great opportunity to see not only what our teens have learned, but how they’ve taken that knowledge and turned it into something that can be showcased!
The Universe is expanding, so come expand your own horizons by soaking up some of the residual smartness that’s radiating off of these shining young minds!
