Greetings EQ Education Family!
We are back again with another exciting story from DetroitLeadership Academy – Auburn! Students have been going through many changes asof late. With a new schedule in place, students have more stability withintheir classes. Teachers are now tasked with moving to different classrooms.This helps students become more acclimated with their room as well as cut downon distractions in the hallway. One exciting new program is called ChampionHour! This is a period in which students can take a break from their regularcoursework and engage in a new activities. Programs range from chess, creativewriting, fantasy football – even Beyoncé! Students seemed excited to learn anew craft and engage with a different group of their peers. Champion Hour is aninnovative twist on electives. It helps foster curiosity about a variety oftopics as well as bridge new relationships among grade levels. It was inspiringto watch teachers speak passionately about topics they were interested in. Nextweek, we will feature stories talking about Champion Hour in the beginningstages. We will showcase several perspectives from admin and students alikedetailing their experience within their electives. Look out for theseinspirational stories in our next post.
Until then, see you in the classroom!
