Virtual Learning

“Never let a good crisis go to waste.”
— Winston Churchill

As introduced to our community by our wonderful new Head of School Kim Wargo, the mantra for this year, an old English word, may well be “Coddiwomple” — meaning to travel purposefully toward an as-yet-unknown destination.

With our creative, innovative, and highly specialized faculty and staff outdoing themselves daily, we are working diligently to take these unprecedented times — with all the changing circumstances, shifting variables, and uncontrollable forces that comes with them — and ensure that we provide the best education The Lab School can, has, and will always offer.

The Fun of Math Challenges

You know you really understand a concept when you can explain it to someone else. That is just what students in Junior High Math Teacher Dan Hegarty’s class did.

“I especially like challenging students with creative math questions or puzzles, and as it turns out, virtual learning actually affords an increased opportunity to do this,” says Mr. Hegarty. Recently, he gave his 7th Grade Algebra class a question and they used FlipGrid to explain in a video how they arrived at their solution. Many students seemed to easily don their teacher hat!
