The iSchool which I featured as the Immunization to an Uninteresting Curriculum has become even more interesting! Their Area of Focus program allows juniors to select a two-year focus for their studies enabling them to really focus on their area of passion. In it’s first year, the program is already increasing motivation and attracting college interest. This is really something that could/should be done at any school in any grade and likely already is. I look forward to learning more at this weekend’s Educon conference.
I’d also love to know what other schools are doing to tap into students passions.
