The world is interdisciplinary. School should be, too.

Teaching an interdisciplinary curriculum means we educators need to think of ourselves differently, as well. Our role changes from one of an expert who pours knowledge into the students to that of a co-learner, curator, and guide — someone who helps them on their journey to understand the complexity of the world and become a lifelong learner.

Can high schools help solve the youth mental health crisis?

Article after article documents the ways adolescents are struggling with mental health. Schools are responding, and those that can — like Miss Porter’s —  are adding mental health services and working to integrate social-emotional learning into the curriculum.

Two Questions . . .
