Fourth grade scholars at RES have been participating in a once a week class, co-taught by teacher-librarian Beth Redford and enrichment teacher Darcie Rankin. The class focuses on digital literacy, critical thinking, research skills, and interest driven projects. Scholars’ culminating activities were independent, interest driven research projects. Each scholar self selected a topic and designed a Capstone Project to share his or her interests and knowledge.
Fourth graders and their families and friends gathered on Wednesday, May
18 to share their Capstone Projects and celebrate their learning. Thank you to our principal Michael Berry for putting together this video about the Capstone Celebration along with our Art and Music evening!
Digital versions of many of the projects are available at the links below:

Thank you very much to all the adult experts and volunteers who assisted our scholars! Your contributions made this creative, meaningful work possible.
